Facebook unveils new steps to prevent future platform abuse

In a blog post, Facebook announced some "important steps for the future of our platform," namely steps that involve taking action on potential past abuse and putting stronger protections in place to prevent future abuse. "We're going to set a higher standard for how developers build on Facebook, what people should expect from them, and, most importantly, from us," the company said. The steps include investigating all apps that had access to large amounts of information before Facebook changed its platform in 2014 to reduce data access, and the company will conduct a full audit of any app with suspicious activity. "If we find developers that misused personally identifiable information, we will ban them from our platform," Facebook said. The company added that it it will inform people affected by apps that have misused their data, will turn off access for unused apps, and will restrict Facebook Login data. In addition, Facebook said that, in the coming weeks, it will expand is bug bounty program so that people can also report to Facebook if they find misuses of data by app developers. "There's more work to do, and we'll be sharing details in the coming weeks about additional steps we're taking to put people more in control of their data," Facebook said. "Some of these updates were already in the works, and some are related to new data protection laws coming into effect in the EU. This week's events have accelerated our efforts, and these changes will be the first of many we plan to roll out to protect people's information and make our platform safer."

Facebook 'mismanagement' presents new risks, says Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser said his prior negative view on Facebook has been primarily due to concerns about limits to growth for digital advertising in general and for Facebook in particular, but now signs of "systemic mismanagement" have become a new concern. Investors now have to consider whether the company will conclude that it has grown in a manner that is untenable, which would then depress the size of the company, or whether it needs to significantly improve how it is managed, which introduces the risks of personnel changes, with both scenarios presenting new incremental risks. He keeps his Sell rating and $152 price target on Facebook shares.

KeyBanc recommends buying Facebook
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves says the firestorm of news headlines, and Facebook's poor navigation of those, have driven an increase in uncertainty that has far surpassed the risk to Facebook's cash flow growth. The analyst recommends investors buy Facebook at current levels and sees potential catalysts in earnings, a reasonable response from the company, and the passage of the height of negative headline volume. Hargreaves reiterates an Overweight rating and $245 price target on the shares.

Facebook selloff since Friday a buying opportunity, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ken Sena views the 9% pullback in shares of Facebook since Friday's close as a buying opportunity. Facebook "now represents among the best values in our coverage despite its higher growth," Sena tells investors a research note titled "Thank Goodness For Instagram." The analyst believes the potential impact on usage and advertising from the Cambridge Analytica data abuse scandal remains "quite manageable." While headline risk may ensue from the congressional and agency interviews, investors should not lose sight of the areas where Facebook is doing very well, particularly Instagram, Sena contends. He sees Instagram becoming a "bigger catalyst within the FB story this year." The analyst's worst-case scenario assumes a 5.5% revenue headwind stemming from user attrition and reduced ad efficacy following the May implementation of General Data Protection Regulation in Europe. Sena does not see the recent news as commensurate with the recent selloff. He keeps an Outperform rating on Facebook shares with a $230 price target. The social media giant closed yesterday down $4.41 to $168.15.

Facebook risk/reward 'compelling' despite headwinds, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill said that while headlines will likely keep Facebook's stock range bound and weigh on investor sentiment into the second half of the year, the headwinds will not effect the top line. Thill sees about $15 of downside against $65 of upside, and hence sees the risk/reward as compelling at these levels. The analyst maintained a Buy rating and $230 price target on Facebook shares.
