Facebook CEO exceeds expecations in congressional hearing, says Wells Fargo
Following the first day of Congressional testimony by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Wells Fargo analyst Ken Sena says the executive exceeded investor expectations. "He appeared focused, conciliatory, and genuinely engaged in a productive discussion" with legislators on how best to rectify the company's loss in public trust and the company's roadmap to safeguard against future abuses, the analyst contends. Sena sees this as a positive sign for investors, even though another long day of testimony remains ahead. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $230 price target on the shares.

Facebook price target lowered to $214 from $237 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner lowered his price target on Facebook to $214 and also reduced his FY18 EPS target to $8.54 from $8.61, saying the headline risk for the company has increased from the Cambridge Analytica scandal as well as the reported U.S. election tampering. Bonner contends that Facebook may be faced with "material" regulatory action and also may experience a decline in user engagement from the privacy related backlash. The analyst notes however that Facebook's operational results are strong, with earnings growth 65% and revenue growth of 47% last year, while its large daily active user base gives it the momentum to withstand the headwinds.

Facebook CEO 'cooperative and well prepared' in Senate testimony, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali keeps his Buy rating and $225 price target on Facebook following the 4-hour testimony by CEO Mark Zuckerberg in front of the U.S. Senate yesterday. The analyst says Zuckerberg appeared "well-prepared and cooperative" in defending Facebook position while also acknowledging its mistakes and expressing willingness to implement major platform changes. Squali calls the testimony a "seminal event" that will likely lead to increased regulation, but also maintains the view that large advertising platforms like Facebook should remain favored by more government oversight. The analyst maintains his view of no evidence of flight by large digital advertisers and no indication that users are leaving Facebook en masse. Squali also keeps his positive view on the stock's compelling valuation.
