Twitter investors urge it to report on steps it's taking to combat fake news

A group of Twitter shareholders is urging the company for an update on how it is fighting fake news, abuse, and to specify the regulatory risk it faces. Twitter's board responded that the company is "taking action." The New York State Retirement Fund and Arjuna Capital have filed a shareholder proposal that would encourage Twitter to put together a detailed report about how well it's doing enforcing its social network's terms of service, the company disclosed in a regulatory document on Wednesday. The shareholders are also urging the company to include in the report the possible financial and other risks it faces from fake news and similar controversies. "Shareholders are concerned that Twitter's failure to address these issues proactively has created regulatory, legal, and reputational risk," the investors said in their proposal. "We believe Twitter has an obligation to demonstrate how it manages content to prevent violations of its terms of service. Yet, disclosures have been inadequate." Twitter also noted its statement of opposition, saying "Our board of directors has considered this proposal and, for the reasons described below, believes that adopting this proposal is not in the best interests of Twitter and our stockholders and unanimously recommends that you vote 'AGAINST' this proposal. Our board of directors and management have devoted, and continue to devote, significant effort to ensure that we are aware of and able to properly address public policy issues of importance to our business. Because we believe that the issues raised in the proposal are or have already been addressed as part of our ongoing business operations through our existing robust systems, structures, processes and controls, with significant oversight from our board of directors and management at the highest levels, we do not believe that establishing a separate public policy committee of the board of directors is necessary."

Twitter price target raised to $28 from $15 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he underestimated Twitter's (TWTR) turnaround efforts throughout 2017 and he has raised his price target on the stock to $28 from $15 given the company's better revenue outlook and high incremental margins. However, despite Twitter's better than expected results, he still sees the stock being a relative underperformer from current levels when compared to faster growing peers like Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOGL), he tells investors. Nowak keeps an Underweight rating on Twitter.

Facebook pricing/ROI continuing higher, Twitter feedback constructive, says Cleveland Research
Citing a recent research into the digital advertising channel, Cleveland Research analyst Kevin Rottinghaus says that Facebook (FB) pricing continues to increase, justified by a continued improvement in ROI, and the social media platform appears to be opening more inventory on Instagram and Messenger. Meanwhile, the analyst says Twitter (TWTR) continues to improve in ad technology, advertiser/partner engagement, traffic and users, and the company is seeing some signs that ad dollars are coming back into the platform. Snap, on the other hand, is still seeing limited ad dollars to the platform as ROI and ad tech lag, with app redesign receiving cautious feedback, he contends. The analyst also pointed out that Amazon (AMZN) is viewed as taking incremental dollars otherwise likely to paid search and Google (GOOG; GOOGL), while remaining aggressive in expanding ad tech and sales channels.

Facebook, Twitter MAUs could drop on European regulation, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler says his recent checks indicate Europe's General Data Protection Regulation could be "slightly more problematic than Facebook (FB) implied in recent commentary." The analyst sees risk that reported monthly active users could drop off for Facebook and Twitter (TWTR) starting in late Q2. He adds, however, that daily active users are "far more important and less of a GDPR concern for the social networks." Daily users may also drop off a bit, Sandler adds. The analyst sees less of impact on ad revenue. Further, his checks suggest that most companies using cookies and tags for digital marketing should be relatively unchanged as most publishers have been using GDPR compliant notifications for months ahead of the May mandate. Beyond GDPR, Sandler thinks ePrivacy regulation, slated for 2020 and beyond, may be even more problematic for the social media group, and "accrue more control" to Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and Apple (AAPL).

JPMorgan says buy Twitter on 'overdone' data licensing concerns
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth believes concerns over Twitter's (TWTR) data licensing are overdone. Twitter shares have declined 21% since the March 16 close in the wake of Facebook's (FB) data and privacy issues, along with broader concerns around targeting in online advertising and the potential for regulation, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. Yes, Twitter is providing enterprises and approved developers with access to Twitter's "public firehose of data" for use cases such as evaluating brand sentiment, understanding consumer trends, and providing customer service, the analyst writes. But importantly, Anmuth says, Twitter is primarily providing aggregated and anonymized data at an enterprise level. Twitter's APIs "simply make its already publicly available information more accessible at scale," he contends. Anmuth notes that Twitter's data licensing customers do not gain access to users' private direct messages. The analyst recommends taking advantage of the recent weakness in Twitter shares. He keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $36 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 12%, or $3.84, to $28.07.
