California Attorney General calls Facebook reports 'very concerning'

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said via Twitter, "We can't confirm or deny any potential or ongoing investigation, in keeping with our policy at CA DOJ. But these reports are very concerning and as Attorney General, protecting your personal information is of utmost importance." Facebook closed the trading day down 7% to $172.56 after the New York Times reported that Cambridge Analytica, a voter-profiling company, harvested private information from the Facebook profiles of more than 50M users without their permission.

Jefferies boosts Amazon target to $1,850 after ad business deep dive
Following a deep dive into the company's advertising business, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill raised his price target for Amazon.com (AMZN) shares to $1,850 from $1,750. The stock closed yesterday up $19.50 to $1,589.39. Amazon's ad segment should grow annually at 43% to $22B by 2022, Thill tells investors in a research note. Amazon is aggressively growing its advertising business, but not at the expense of Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL), the analyst contends. He says Amazon's "billions of touch points with consumers and end of funnel sales conversion are an advertiser's dream for targeting and attribution." Thill thinks the "right pieces are in place" for Amazon to get to $1 trillion in market capitalization over time. He keeps a Buy rating on Amazon shares.

Morgan Stanley compares automakers to Facebook, Apple in 'Auto 2.0' model
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas noted that auto companies' valuations have compressed to extremely low levels, but he believes that a move from a vehicle ownership model to a transportation subscriber model could expand the revenue opportunities for the potential "tollkeepers" for the monetization of content and data by "nearly an order of magnitude." Looking at U.S. technology leaders Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL), which are both valued on their installed base/subscriber models, can "offer valuable clues" regarding the opportunity for General Motors (GM) and other auto OEMs, said Jonas. Viewing the OEMs though the lens of a subscription model, which should be less cyclical and potentially less capital intensive over time than the current auto model, is relevant to analyzing auto stocks, according to Jonas, who adds that it is still too early to call a winner or loser in "Auto 2.0." Other publicly traded legacy automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM), Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Daimler (DDAIF).

Pivotal Research sees enhanced risks for Facebook following data leak
More "systemic problems" at Facebook were revealed in reporting this weekend associated with a 50M person data leak, Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Sell rating on Facebook shares with a $152 price target. The stock in premarket trading is down 4%, or $7.80, to $177.29. The data leak is "another indication of systemic problems" at Facebook, although the company's business won't likely be meaningfully impacted for now, Wieser contends. He does not think advertisers "will suddenly change the trajectory of their spending growth on the platform." The analyst believes, however, that Facebook's regulatory risks will intensify and that enhanced use of data in advertising is at greater risk than before.

Facebook selloff on data concerns brings buying opportunity, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein recommends using the selloff today in shares of Facebook as a buying opportunity. The stock in afternoon trading is down 7% to $171.61. The analyst believes a third party created an app leveraging Facebook's universal login software tool, giving it access to user information and information on their connections. The data was then shared with Cambridge Analytica and leveraged for political purposes, which likely broke Facebook's terms of service, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. The analyst says he has no reason to believe, as of now, that any laws were broken. Further, Helfstein points out that regulatory solutions "often take an inordinate amount of time." He also believes that consumers have largely become desensitized to data-privacy related issues. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Facebook with a $225 price target.
