Facebook used less for news as young users turn to WhatsApp, Reuters reports

Usage of Facebook (FB) for news fell nine percentage points from 2017 in the U.S. and dropped 20 points for younger audiences as users turn toward messaging apps like Facebook-owned WhatsApp to discuss events, Reuters reports, citing a Reuters Institute survey of 74,000 people in 37 markets. Facebook and Twitter (TWTR) are still used by many users to find news but discussion has shifted towards messaging apps as people feel less vulnerable discussing events with private groups of friends in such apps.

Audience reach data show improving trends at Snap, says Deutsche Bank
Audience reach data show improving trends at Snap (SNAP) and stability at Facebook (FB) despite the General Data Protection Regulation rollout in Europe, Deutsche Bank analysts Lloyd Walmsley and Kunal Madhukar tells investors in a research note. The analysts "feel better" about Snap daily active user growth, and the shares, after looking at the latest trends in the Snapchat self-serve ad platform data. They reiterate a Buy rating on Facebook and Hold rating on Snap. On the latter, the analysts cite their below consensus estimates and the stock's "lack valuation support" for staying neutral on Snap.

Match Group upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill upgraded Match Group (MTCH) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $50 from $40. The stock closed Friday up 65c to $41.52. A survey of 600 online daters shows many users do not wish to commingle dating with social media, Thill tells investors in a research note. As such, he believes Facebook's (FB) dating will likely appeal to an older demographic rather than millennials on Tinder. The analyst notes that many past Facebook product launches have not impacted publicly traded competition.

Instagram could be primary growth driver by 2020, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves believes Facebook's Instagram will drive 27% of incremental ad revenue in 2018, going up to 58% by 2020, at which point he estimates the service will have over 1.4B MAU and over $22B of revenue. Given the immense data set of Facebook's combined properties, the massive Instagram opportunity, and the potential of multiple other billion-user products, the analyst recommends buying Facebook. Hargreaves reiterates an Overweight rating and $245 price target on the shares.

Morgan Stanley says AT&T ruling may help narrow public/private media value gap
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said the court approval of AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) without conditions recognized the reality of new competition in the form of content investments from players such as Netflix (NFLX), Google's (GOOGL) YouTube, Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB). This ruling sends a "clear message to other industry players" and market uncertainty on deal prospects could fall, which could mean that equity values will likely rise accordingly, Swinburne tells investors. He notes there remains a large gap, which may now narrow, between private market valuations and public multiples in many parts of media and cable, pointing to Discovery Inc. (DISCK) as an example illustrating that point.

Snap price target lowered to $14 from $17 at Jefferies
Snap last night posted the lowest top line growth it has seen as a public company and user metrics "show more trouble ahead," Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Ongoing Growing Pains." The analyst continues to recommend Facebook (FB) in Social and is more positive on Twitter (TWTR) than Snap during the latter's redesign. He lowered his price target for Snap to $14 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

World Cup may be more meaningful driver for Twitter vs. 2014, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target on Twitter to $43 from $40 and maintained a Buy rating, telling investors in a research note that the impact of the World Cup could be a more meaningful driver for Twitter than in 2014, as the service is much improved since then and video was nascent on Twitter in 2014 but is now the largest source of monetization. He thinks the potential for Twitter to become a mass-market service in the future "still exists," which could lead to a significant revaluation if it happens.

Argus analyst Jim Kelleher raised his price target for Twitter to $50 from $40 and backed a Buy rating following the announcement that Twitter will become a component stock in the S&P 500, which Kelleher says Twitter has earned. In a research note to investors, Kelleher says Twitter has righted itself after several early missteps threatened its place in the social media world and that its role int he digital arena is "vital."

Twitter price target raised to $50 from $39 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target for Twitter to $50 from $39 saying the company's advertising momentum is strengthening, particularly among large marketers. The stock closed yesterday up 21c to $41.42. Industry conversations suggest the value for advertisers on Twitter is increasing, driven by double-digit daily active user growth for six straight quarters, improving product for both users and marketers, and better pricing amid declining cost per engagement, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. He projects Twitter's advertising revenue growth will accelerate in both Q2 and Q3, and believes his 21% growth projection for Q4 likely remains conservative. The analyst increased his second half of 2018 and 2019 estimates by around 3% across both revenue and EBITDA. Anmuth has "increasing confidence" that Twitter can grow ad revenue 20%-plus over the next few years and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
