Facebook to reduce distribution of low-quality ads

The company said, "Low-quality ads on Facebook, such as ones that include clickbait or direct people to unexpected content, create bad experiences for people and don't align with our goal of creating meaningful connections between people and businesses. We are now going further in our efforts to limit low-quality ads on our platforms by disapproving more of them and reducing distribution for more ads in our auction...Our Advertising Policies include restrictions on ads with low-quality or disruptive content. These ads typically have some of the below characteristics: Engagement bait: Ads with spammy content asking people to engage with it in specific ways, such as requesting likes, comments and shares. Withholding information: Ads that purposefully withhold information to entice people to click in order to understand the full context. Sensationalized language: Ads that use exaggerated headlines or command a reaction from people but don't deliver on the landing page...With our expanded enforcement on the above characteristics, advertisers should expect the following:Individual ads with low-quality attributes will see reduced distribution in our ad auction, or will be disapproved. This applies to all advertisers, but since we tend to see more of these characteristics in ads related to media, entertainment, politics or issues of national importance, they may be impacted more. Multiple ads flagged with low-quality attributes may impact the performance of all ads from that advertiser." Reference Link

Buy
Facebook initiated with a Buy at Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz started Facebook with a Buy rating in a note partially entitled "Facebook: Value, Not Trap." Given the stock's current valuation, there appears to be little confidence consensus expectations will be met and he is "in that camp," forecasting calendar 2019 EPS that is about 8% below consensus, Zgutowicz tells investors. However, with that said, he sees the anticipated EPS shortfall as priced in the shares and would be a buyer of the stock in front of the Q3 report, stating that he sees a bottoming for News Feed fatigue and enough light ahead with new product innovation and Instagram and Watch optionality. Zgutowicz set a $213 price target on Facebook shares.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. NEEDHAM SAYS BUY TAPESTRY: Needham analyst Rick Patel upgraded Tapestry to Buy from Hold and kept his $50 price target. The analyst notes that after a 14% selloff in the stock price driven by tariff-related concerns and the slowdown of Asia sales at LVMH, the risk-reward is favorable. Patel estimates that the hit to EPS from the impact of the handbag tariff should be "relatively modest" at about 1%. The analyst further notes that Tapestry has "ample white space" for long term growth in China through new distribution, while its North America sales indicate "well-controlled promotions" for Coach and Kate Spade. ANALYSTS SAY BUY FACEBOOK IN NEW INITIATIONS: Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould initiated Facebook with a Buy rating and a price target of $210, saying the stock is valued "quite attractively" after a "strong year financially and a challenging year operationally". The analyst also notes that the company's guidance is likely "conservative" given the company's propensity to beat consensus estimates. Meanwhile, Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz started Facebook with a Buy rating in a note partially entitled "Facebook: Value, Not Trap." Given the stock's current valuation, there appears to be little confidence consensus expectations will be met and he is "in that camp," forecasting calendar 2019 EPS that is about 8% below consensus, Zgutowicz tells investors. However, with that said, he sees the anticipated EPS shortfall as priced in the shares and would be a buyer of the stock in front of the Q3 report, stating that he sees a bottoming for News Feed fatigue and enough light ahead with new product innovation and Instagram and Watch optionality. Zgutowicz set a $213 price target on Facebook shares. TILRAY TARGET SET AT $200 AS CANADA GETS READY TO LEGALIZE: Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey initiated coverage of Tilray with a Buy rating and $200 price target, citing its early leadership in the medical cannabis market in Canada and the upcoming legalization of recreational cannabis, which begins in the North American nation tomorrow. He believes the company's strategic alliance with Novartis (NVS) and supply agreements with Canadian pharmacies that give Tilray a competitive edge in the Canadian medical cannabis market, Hickey tells investors. He also believes the potential international opportunity is "enormous," estimating that the global cannabis market opportunity could exceed $200B over the long-term. JEFFERIES SEES NO COMPETING BIDS FOR PINNACLE: Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale downgraded Pinnacle Foods (PF) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $68 from $72. The analyst assumes Conagra Brands' (CAG) bid to buy the company for $68 will go through without any competing bids. The stock should trade in line with its $68 transaction price until completion of the deal, Jagdale tells investors. GOLDMAN PREDICTS AVIS, HERTZ OUTLOOKS WILL DISAPPOINT: Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino nudged the price target on Avis Budget (CAR) lower to $30 from $31 while keeping the price target on Hertz at $13 as part of his broader research note previewing Q3 results for the two Sell-rated U.S. car rental names. The analyst notes that Hertz (HTZ) may top Q3 consensus earnings and Avis Budget could miss based on his analysis of their respective pricing trends and residual values, but both have an added risk from reduced airport volume growth amid tightening competition among the ride hailing operators like Uber and Lyft. Tamberrino expects the car rental industry to remain challenged overall, noting that positive pricing will not be sustained, residual values will be pressured as more cars come off lease, and rising interest rates exert pressure on their balance sheets' high debt levels.

Outperform
Facebook near-term risks embedded in shares, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian expects Facebook's Q3 results to confirm slowing core growth amid reallocation of some spending to Instagram and potentially other sites. He believes the shares have embedded some downside risk to consensus estimates with out-year Street margin expectations likely to compress further. Sebastian is maintaining his Outperform rating and $195 price target on Facebook shares.
