Facebook using range of techniques to counter deceptive tactics

Facebook officials said on a press briefing yesterday that the social network is using a range of techniques, including artificial intelligence, to counter Russian operatives or others who use deceptive tactics and false information to manipulate public opinion. "There are four key areas that we continue to focus on. The first is fighting fake accounts. Using machine learning we've gotten more effective at either blocking, or quickly removing fake accounts. And that's important since they're often the root of a lot of the bad activity that we see on our platform. And we're now at the point that we stop more than a million accounts per day at the point of creation. Second is combating fake news. We continue to expand this effort with 27 third-party fact-checking partners in 17 countries. And my colleague, Tessa, will expand on this work in a minute. The third is around more ad transparency. We continue to bring increased levels of transparency to online political advertising which my colleague, Rob, will cover in more detail in a moment. And the fourth is proactively monitoring for abuse. We've been able to apply powerful computational techniques that are traditionally used to fight spam and apply those to the civic space... To make all this happen, we're investing both in technology and in people. We continue to add team members dedicated to this work having recently passed 15,000 and closer to 20,000 people by the end of the year. As most of you know, we review reports of bad content in over 50 languages, and we do that 24 hours a day, seven days a week." Reference Link

Outperform
Facebook likely to weather controversy over data breach, GDPR, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter maintained an Outperform rating and $275 price target ahead of the company's Q2 results on July 25, telling investors in a research note that he expects top-line results to come in above-consensus. Pachter anticipates that ad pricing growth will again drive results this quarter, following double-digit year-over-year increases in each of the past five quarters, and that revenue growth will remain "robust." Pachter says he believes Facebook will weather the controversy surround its Cambridge Analytica data breach and the implementation of GDPR in Europe, and he sees Facebook making continued investments in delivering advertising for Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, which are likely to yield major returns in the coming years. Shares of Facebook are on the Wedbush Investment Committee's Best Idea List.

Facebook price target raised to $242 ahead of earnings at Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt is predicting "modest" revenue growth deceleration to 45% growth year-over-year in Q2 from Facebook when it reports next Wednesday, July 25. Across his coverage, he is shifting his view to incrementally favor mega cap U.S. digital advertising over e-commerce outside of China in the near-term as digital advertising growth momentum continues and he sees the potential for multiple expansion. Devitt keeps a Buy rating on Facebook and raised his price target on the stock to $242 from $202.

Facebook expected Q2 expense ramp may be too aggressive, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson is keeping his Buy rating and $255 price target on Facebook (FB) ahead of its results next week, saying he expects revenue upside and believes that the anticipated ramp in expenses implied in the consensus for earnings may be too aggressive. The analyst also cites greater visibility on monetization and opportunities in WhatsApp and Messenger justifying a higher multiple, which he sees at a full 3-point discount relative to Google (GOOGL) in spite of Facebook's much higher rate of growth.

JPMorgan positive on Facebook into Wednesday's earnings report
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth is positive heading into Facebook's Q2 earnings report on July 25. He believes that both user engagement and monetization have "remained strong," despite data security concerns and Europe's General Data Protection Regulation. The analyst's industry checks suggest Facebook continues to see strong demand from a large and growing advertiser base and that return on investment "remains very compelling." Anmuth keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $242 price target.
