Washington AG files campaign finance suits against Facebook, Google

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed campaign finance lawsuits in King County Superior Court today alleging Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) failed to maintain legally required information for Washington state political advertising placed on their online platforms since 2013. Washington state campaign finance laws require commercial advertisers that sell political advertising to maintain information about those who purchase advertising. The advertisers are also required to make that information available to the public. According to documents filed with the state Public Disclosure Commission, in the last decade, Washington candidates and political committees reported about $3.4M in payments to Facebook and $1.5M to Google related to advertising. "Washington's political advertising disclosure laws apply to everyone, whether you are a small-town newspaper or a large corporation," Ferguson said. "Washingtonians have a right to know who's paying for the political advertising they see." The state seeks penalties and injunctive relief. The defendants will have 20 days from the date they are served to respond to the state's complaint. Reference Link

Deutsche Bank continues to like Facebook shares at current levels
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley says his ad system checks suggest Facebook's removal of fraudulent accounts has not had an impact on the company's overall advertising reach, as marketed to ad buyers in the self serve system. In addition, he believes Facebook's elevated spending levels are well incorporated into consensus estimates. After Facebook posted a series of blog posts yesterday about how the company tries to keep nefarious content off its site, Walmsley says he continues to like the stock at current levels. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Facebook price target raised to $255 from $240 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target for Facebook to $255 from $240 and maintained a Buy rating, telling investors in a research note that while he believes the topline outlook is "far too conservative," Facebook remains a top pick. Though valuation has begun to normalize following the user data scandal, he sees significant headroom for multiple expansion, but believes the stock can still move higher without it.

Alphabet 'still attractive' vs. market multiple, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson maintained a Buy rating and $1,355 price target on Alphabet (GOOGL) shares, telling investors in a research note that shares are still attractive vs. the market multiple. Sanderson thinks that both Alphabet and Facebook (FB) are more insulated than smaller rivals to the recently implemented privacy rules in Europe, contending that the companies are better positioned to comply with standards and have less dependence on third party data.

'The best has yet to come' for Amazon, says SunTrust, raising PT to $2,000
SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali raised his price target on Amazon.com (AMZN) to $2,000 from $1,900 and maintained a Buy rating on shares, telling investors in a research note that "the best has yet to come" for Amazon. Squali sees more upside in the stock, and says Amazon is "one of our favorite names within our IDM group" with the company expanding into offline distribution, building a private label business at scale and challenging Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOGL) as a major marketing platform. He also contends that private label is one of the highly under appreciated trends within Amazon, which should, over time, give Amazon a strong "unfair" competitive advantage.

Credit Suisse says 'bullish' on PayPal story following analyst day
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra said he remains "bullish" on the PayPal (PYPL) story and is positive on the stock following Thursday's analyst day. In a research note to investors, Condra said he found PayPal's tone to be "very positive" at the event, with several new initiatives, including a deeper relationship with Google (GOOG, GOOGL), progress on Venmo monetization and the new cash car, but notes that the market could have a negative reaction to management's decision to withdraw total payment volume guidance. Condra maintained an Outperform rating and $93 price target on shares.

RBC Capital backs Outperform rating on Netflix post U.S., international surveys
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney reiterated an Outperform rating and $360 price target on Netflix (NFLX) shares following "positive" results from surveys in the U.S., France and German that found higher satisfaction trends, a rising willingness to pay for streaming content and high penetration levels. In the U.S., Mahaney noted that the survey found 55% of respondents watch Netflix, a significant lead over YouTube (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, TWX), adding that while Amazon is showing the fastest penetration growth among Streaming services, three years of data show that Prime customers are "more likely to also subscribe to Netflix." He views Netflix as one of the best derivatives off the strong growth in online video viewing and in Internet connect devices.
