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.

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."
