Facebook valuation 'extremely compelling' despite risks, says Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley sees three key risks for Facebook surrounding the Cambridge Analytica issue: ongoing headline risk that perpetuates a negative news cycle, direct risk around Facebook's perceived data security, and potential indirect impact from data regulations/legislation that ultimately curbs the company's ability to serve hyper targeted ads. The analyst, however, takes comfort in Facebook's "improving handling of other recent issues and its best-in-class overall execution." He sees a "large distance" between the current issues and any legislation that would curb Facebook's ad targeting in a meaningful way. As such, Facebook's valuation is "extremely compelling despite the increased risks," Walmsley tells investors in a research note.

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.

Facebook ad trends run counter to investor fears, says UBS
Facebook is taking proactive steps to address the Cambridge Analytica situation and broader data protection concerns through business model iteration, UBS analyst Eric Sheridan tells investors in a research note. Longer term changes in the regulation of social media platforms and the collection/use of fist party data remain the main risk factor for Facebook, the analyst adds. He believes, however, that "current positive ad trends" run counter to investor fears. Sheridan keeps a Buy rating on Facebook with a $215 price target.

Morgan Stanley answers 'top 4 investor questions' about Facebook
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak identified the top four questions he's heard from Facebook investors and outlined his answers in a new note. Addressing "What should Facebook do?", Nowak's take is that the company should become more assertive about the mistakes it has made and how it intends to fix them. On the question of "regulatory risk," he does believe the Cambridge Analytica news has increased Facebook's risk, which he contends only furthers the impetus to begin to take control of the public message, self-regulate and improve safeguards. On the question of "fundamental risk," Nowak said he does not see a fundamental risk to revenue or EPS as of now and he is not changing his FY18 and FY19 forecasts, though he adds that the "drumbeat of negative news and headlines" increases the risk that there is some user backlash and an "eventual" advertiser backlash. On the question of whether Facebook's multiple has bottomed, Nowak said "Yes, but this isn't new," as he noted that its multiple makes the stock cheaper than Alphabet (GOOGL), eBay (EBAY) and "many other assets" that are growing more slowly and/or don't have as much long-term monetization potential. Nowak maintains his Overweight rating and $230 price target on Facebook shares.
