Facebook Q1 results likely to beat expectations, says MKM Partners

MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson expects Facebook's Q1 results to beat expectations, and he believes that the company's "tone" on the the likely deceleration of ad load growth in 2H17 has "softened." He adds that user growth and engagement will continue to be an area of focus, given "greater focus" on competition from Snapchat (SNAP). However, he continues to believe that Facebook is "a core holding for growth investors" and keeps a Buy rating.

Jefferies sees potential upside to Snap's Q1 results after survey
After surveying 1,000 internet users in the U.S. aged 18-45 who use both Facebook (FB) and Snap's (SNAP) Snapchat, Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald believes there could be upside to Snap's Q1 results. The survey found that both Instagram and Snapchat are seeing continued user growth, with Snapchat usage growing fastest among the older demographic, Fitzgerald tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes Snap's recent improvements to targeting and the increase gamified ad formats will help drive average revenue per user growth over time. Fitzgerald keeps a Buy rating on Snap with a $30 price target. The stock closed Thursday down 1c to $20.19.

Facebook overall trends remain 'very strong,' says MScience
MScience analyst Steven Weinstein is forecasting Facebook's North American revenues of 4.07B, down slightly from $4.08B, above consensus of $4.005B. The analyst said slowing increases in US spending per advertiser led to a modest deceleration in revenue growth, but these trends are reflected in management's comments regarding ad load leveling off. Weinstein views overall trends as "very strong."
