Facebook kills Lifestage app, Business Insider reports

Facebook (FB) has quietly killed Lifestage, the Snapchat (SNAP)-like app intended to help teens find and connect with other classmates who went to their school, a spokesperson confirms to Business Insider. The app had not been updated for months, the report notes. "Teens continue to make up an important part of the global community on Facebook, and we've learned a lot from Lifestage. We will continue to incorporate these learnings into features in the main Facebook app," the spokesperson says. Reference Link

Facebook reinstated with a Buy at Mizuho
As previously reported, Mizuho analyst James Lee reinstated Facebook with a Buy and a $230 price target, arguing that the company has the "unique advantage" of both pricing leverage due to its highly engaging ad formats and best-in-class targeting paired with inventory leverage due to ad formats and data that span its core Facebook, Instagram and mobile messaging properties.

Snap shares should rebound in second half of year, says Deutsche Bank
Snap shares offer a "compelling" risk/reward profile at current levels, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley tells investors in a research note titled "Remember, It's a 2H Story." The analyst sees "innovation thriving" at Snap across the app, advertising product and ad technology. Intra quarter ad checks have started to pick up with industry contacts noting brand advertisers are increasingly of the view that Snap offers compelling view rates and view-to-completion rates, Walmsley writes. He expects continued product innovation to drive growth in daily active users and engagement over time. Snap shares should rebound in the second half of 2017 as it's "inflection comes into focus," Walmsley argues. He lowered his price target for the shares to $20 from $23 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. The analyst points out that his new lowered price target still reflects 51% upside from current share levels. Snap closed Friday up 60c to $13.52.

Facebook 'strong over-delivery' a negative for Snap, says Needham
