Facebook Q1 ad revenue to be at least in-line, says William Blair

William Blair analyst Ralph Schackart says his conversations with investors and industry participants indicate at least an in-line Q1 on advertising revenue for Facebook. The Street estimate is $11.26B, up 43% year-over-year. Despite the recent privacy concerns, conversations with industry participants indicate that they have not experienced any major advertiser spending pullback so far, Schackart tells investors in a research note. Further, he notes that the concerns surfaced near the end of the quarter, so any potential effects from privacy concerns likely will not be materially reflected in the Q1 report. Schackart believes Facebook shares have upside to about $205 over the next 12 months based on multiple expansion or shares growing in line with EBITDA growth. He keeps an Outperform rating on the name.

Credit Suisse seeks 'silver bullet' for Amazon, finds 'sticks and stones'
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju conducted a sensitivity analysis to examine the potential range of outcomes for Amazon (AMZN) in the event of a USPS price increase, saying that while he was looking for a "silver bullet," he found "only sticks and stones." In a research note to investors, Ju said he went into the analysis seeking a possible "silver bullet" which may disrupt the level of service given Amazon's dependency on the UPS to push its consumer value proposition, adding that the current assumption is that USPS accounts for about 40%-50% of Amazon's shipping cost in the U.S. Ju said he arrived at about $1B-$1.8B in potential incremental shipping costs this year that Amazon may decide to absorb, or it could pass some, if not all, of the incremental costs onto the consumer via a Prime price hike. He believes the pullback in Amazon shares has more to do with devaluation of its megacap Internet peers, including Facebook (FB), versus the new round of tweets from President Trump which highlighted the reliance Amazon has on the USPS.

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.

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.
