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.

KeyBanc remains positive on Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts
KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren remains positive on Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA), and Take-Two (TTWO) after attending eSCon, a small eSports conference in Los Angeles. The analyst believes interest and momentum in the space remains high, and continues to think the majority of the economics in the industry will accrue to IP owners and scaled technology partners. Therefore, Wingren continues to see the publishers as well-positioned, as well as Amazon's (AMZN) Twitch, Google's (GOOG; GOOGL) YouTube, and Facebook (FB).

Facebook has 'realistic' chance to enter China next year, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst James Lee said his recent meetings with industry contacts during a trip to China left him with the impression that the company could have a "realistic opportunity" for entering China next year. He thinks the business will initially connect only Chinese users and be localized. Lee also believes either Instagram or online gaming are most likely as products to start, adding that virtual reality also "appears to be a safe entry" for Facebook given that gaming is less sensitive than social media. The analyst keeps a Buy rating and $230 price target on Facebook shares.

Facebook online retargeting to be well received by marketers, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Peter Stabler notes that Facebook has rolled out online retargeting based on offline activity. Amid industry headwinds for brick-and-mortar sellers, the analyst expects that the ability to pair Custom Audiences retargeting against offline sales/visitation objectives should be well received by marketers. Stabler also argues that Facebook will likely be able to counter the potential for ad targeting abuses via a combination of human moderation and machine learning.
