Facebook price target raised to $210 from $170 at BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Facebook to $210 after his "deep dive" into the company's main platform and Instagram advertising revenue and format, estimating a $52.8B 2018 advertising revenue generation from the two. The analyst also forecasts a 3-year annualized growth for Facebook at 23% and Instagram at 80% as part of his analysis, driven by the increasing adoption of video ad format in advertising placement. Salmon keeps his Market Perform rating on Facebook, citing "growing costs necessary for content to drive TV budgets to the platform, R&D spending on tools to both manage user data and monitor content, a lack of visibility into monetization at Messenger/WhatsApp, and the emergence of Amazon's (AMZN) advertising business."

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.

Wedbush expects Amazon to deliver top-line upside once again in Q2
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter believes Amazon can deliver substantial earnings over the long term by growing spending more slowly than revenues. Amazon Web Services, Fulfillment by Amazon, and ads should drive steady margin growth, with Prime driving overall retail revenue growth, he contends. The analyst expects Q2 sales upside with a Bullish Q3 top-line guide driven by Prime Day. Pachter reiterates an Outperform rating and $1,800 price target on the shares.

PayPal has 'unique opportunity' to leverage customer base, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra believes PayPal (PYPL) has a "unique opportunity" as merchants are increasingly pressured to find ways to differentiate from Amazon (AMZN). PayPal has not leveraged the customer side of its platform to its full potential, Condra tells investors in an intraday research note titled "PayPal Prime? Considering PYPL's Potential." The analyst argues that PayPal can become much more valuable to both consumers and merchants once it leverages its 200M global user base. He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Amazon sales momentum continued, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma thinks Amazon's sales momentum continued, driven in part by Prime integration at Whole Foods. The analyst notes that Key First Look Data is supportive to his above consensus revenue view and thinks that increased price investments at Whole Foods helped. For AWS, a continued upswing in AWS job postings in Q2 supports Yruma's $42B sales estimate by 2020, he contends. Similar to the 1Q, the analyst believes advertising should help margins given high contribution margins. He reiterates a Sector Weight rating on the shares.

PayPal has 'unique' opportunity to leverage position, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra is increasingly convinced PayPal (PYPL) has a "unique" opportunity to leverage its position as part of the fabric of the online economy, specifically the non-Amazon (AMZN) economy, to become much more valuable to both consumers and merchants. Condra believes PayPal has not leveraged the customer side of its platform to its full potential. While shoppers use it to pay for things, they do not use it to look for things, and herein lies the opportunity, he contends. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $100 price target on PayPal shares.
