Facebook valuation 'extremely attractive' at current levels, says Deutsche Bank

Facebook remains the best risk/reward in large cap internet given the potential for core engagement to stabilize, for monetization in the Stories format to drive a potential re-acceleration in growth in mid-2019, for the negative news cycle to abate and given the "extremely attractive" current valuation, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley tells investors in a research note. The analyst is encouraged that on top of Facebook's "relatively aggressive" share buyback to-date, the board expanded the repurchase authorization again by an additional $9B. He reiterates a Buy rating on Facebook shares.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying Facebook has made too many enemies, including politicians, regulators, technology leaders, consumers, and employees, to not experience "long-term negative ramifications on its business." 2. Conatus (CNAT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Stephen Willey saying the Encore-PH trial missed its pre-specified primary endpoint but post-hoc analyses demonstrated a trend towards statistically significant/emricasan-mediated improvements in patients with compensated cirrhosis and elevated baseline hepatic venous pressure gradient values. 3. BHP Billiton (BHP) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Lyndon Fagan saying the stock has outperformed Rio Tinto (RIO) by 10% year-to-date, and is now trading "within range of our valuation." 4. Toll Brothers (TOL) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Michael Dahl citing a "sharper than expected weakness in orders and likelihood of further near-term declines," with softer margin assumptions attributed to a weaker outlook for orders. 5. Bluebird Bio (BLUE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Tyler Van Buren saying the company is "incredibly innovative" company and bb2121 and LentiGlobin are essentially curing some patients, but the benefits "are not without serious risks."

Hold
Facebook downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Facebook to Hold from Buy and maintained a $150 price target on shares. The analyst wrote in a research note titled 'A Company (Still) In Crisis; Lowering Rating To Hold' that Facebook has made too many enemies, including politicians, regulators, technology leaders, consumers, and employees, to not experience "long-term negative ramifications on its business." Devitt added that the political and regulatory blowback could lead to restrictions on how can Facebook operate. Facebook shares closed down 2.2% to $137.93 on Tuesday, and did not trade today due to the market closure for the day of mourning.
