Facebook may now be more tempting to investors, Barron's says

In its cover story titled "Facebook Comes Under Siege," Barron's says Facebook shares may be more tempting to investors following last week's 14% decline. With more than 2B users, however, Facebook is "almost certain" to not walk away unscathed as the top target for privacy concerns, Jon Swartz writes. Nonetheless, with nearly $42B in cash and investments, Facebook has the flexibility to diversify into other business lines, as it did with Instagram and WhatsApp, Swartz adds. Reference Link

Outperform
Facebook pullback offers 'very compelling' opportunity, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney keeps his Outperform rating and $250 price target on Facebook amid the pullback in the stock, saying he would recommend buying into the weakness while maintaining that the company is still the "Best Growth Story in Tech". Mahaney cites an "almost unanimous" opinion from executives at technology companies and consumer internet companies that the latest data controversies would have no material impact on the relevance and attractiveness of Facebook's marketing platform. That being said, Mahaney also warns that user and engagement growth could suffer in Q1-Q2 amid the negative media attention brought on the company. Still, the analyst believes that at $170 price point, Facebook is trading at a valuation trough, and the medium-to-long term risk-reward on the stock is "downright compelling".

Buy
Facebook price target lowered to $230 from $265 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post lowered his price target on Facebook to $230 and kept his Buy rating in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data management scandal. Post states that Facebook CEO Zuckerberg made a "reasonable" statement to the media in response, acknowledging the company's responsibility in protecting user data, disclosing fixes that have been in place for years, and promising to make additional changes. However, the analyst contends that some near term impact on platform usage can be expected, and the most recent vocal critics of the breach will not be appeased. While not aware of any advertisers publicly disclosing intentions of reduced spending on Facebook marketing, Post points to the "onslaught" of negative headlines and a trending #deleteFacebook hashtag.

Facebook user growth may slow but operational results still strong, says Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner writes that the headline risk for Facebook has increased amid revelations of the Russian government using the platform to influence U.S. elections and the latest Cambridge Analytica data management scandal. Bonner adds that the scandals have led to the recent stock price sell off and may still lead to "material regulatory action" against the company which will hurt user growth over time and pose "the most serious risk". Having said that, the analyst maintains his Buy rating and $237 price target on Facebook, stating that the company's operational results have remained strong while forecasting a long-term earnings growth rate of 24% and a 22% average EPS growth over the next two years.

Facebook to weather controversy surrounding data breach, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter expects Facebook to weather the controversy surrounding its Cambridge Analytica data breach, and to continue to invest in various initiatives, with the majority, if not all, of those initiatives generating substantial EBITDA growth in years to come. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $260 price target on the shares.
