Facebook introduces new advertising standards

Carolyn Everson, VP of global marketing solutions of Facebook, said in a blog post, "This past summer, I attended the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, one of the year's biggest gatherings for advertisers. There, some marketers told me they are feeling uneasy. Chief among their concerns are the issues of viewability, online ad metrics and brand safety. We hear them loud and clear.At Facebook, we take very seriously our responsibility to earn and maintain the trust of our advertiser partners-and give them the confidence they need to invest in us. That's critical to their success and ours. Which is why today, we're introducing new monetization eligibility standards that will provide clearer guidance around the types of publishers and creators eligible to earn money on Facebook, and the kind of content that can be monetized. These standards will apply to ad placements where context could matter, including in-stream ads and Instant Articles. And because brands also want to know where their ads are delivered, we're also announcing that in the coming months, we will begin providing advertisers with post-campaign reporting that clearly identifies the publishers that their ads ran on across Instant Articles, in-stream ads and Audience Network. Together, these standards and tools will give advertisers the clarity and control they need to run their campaigns....With regards to brand safety, generally, people who view content in News Feed implicitly understand that the individual posts they see are not connected to or endorsed by the other posts in their feed-from brands or anyone else. That being said, content adjacency might still be a concern for other ad placements in which the disconnect between content and advertisement may not be as clear, such as Instant Articles and in-stream ads on Facebook, and placements on publisher's sites and apps through Audience Network. So, in addition to offering placement and category opt-outs, next week, we will begin to roll out pre-campaign reporting. At launch, this tool will give advertisers a preview of partners using Instant Articles and in-stream videos on Facebook as well as publishers monetizing their sites and apps via Audience Network. For Audience Network, we expect the full list of publishers on the complete set of formats to be available by October. Post-campaign reporting will begin rolling out in the coming months."

Facebook taking long-term view of video opportunity, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Peter Stabler notes that Facebook (FB) is reportedly willing to spend as much as $1B to cultivate original video programming through 2018. The analyst believes that the scale of potential investment and particular investment targets suggest that Facebook is taking a long-term view of the video opportunity and that investments are likely to "significantly outstrip" near-term video monetization. Additionally, the company appears determined to drive Stories adoption in core Facebook to head off the threat of competitive incursion by Snap (SNAP), while expanding the distribution of advertising stories being widely adopted by marketers on Instagram.

Pivotal says Facebook ad reach claims look inflated
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser noted that Australian trade publication AdNews found that Facebook (FB) claims to reach more 16-39 year-olds in the country than exist according to the country's census. His analysis of Facebook Ads Manager data compared to the U.S. consensus reveals a similar outcome. His talks with ad agency executives on this topic indicate that the gap between Facebook and census figures is not widely known, Wieser tells investors. The analyst, who keeps a Sell rating and $140 price target on Facebook, believes the primary winner of the social media giant's video expansion will be third party measurement firms, such as Nielsen (NLSN) and comScore (SCOR), he added.

KeyBanc continues to recommend owning Facebook
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves continues to recommend owning Facebook, and believes Watch has the potential to reach a scale that few online video platforms have, which should draw brand advertisers and drive incremental revenue. While initial revenue is likely to be modest at Facebook's scale, the analyst thinks the service can grow to $5B or more in the medium term and help sustain Facebook's period of superior growth. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $200 price target on the shares.

Wedbush cites Snap's 'hugely unprofitable' history in Neutral initiation report
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter initiated Snap (SNAP) last night with a Neutral rating and $12 price target. The shares closed yesterday down 3c to $14.96. Decelerating growth trends, "fierce" competition for user mindshare and advertiser dollars, and a history of being "hugely unprofitable" justify being on the sidelines with respect to the shares, Pachter tells investors in a research note. He notes his $12 price target reflects a slight premium to Twitter's (TWTR) multiple, since Snap "appears to have a longer runway for continued growth," and a discount to Facebook's (FB) multiple, a company with "superior monetization and growth trends."
