Facebook removes hundreds more accounts linked to the Myanmar military

In a blog post published Tuesday night, Facebook said it took down 425 Pages and 150 additional Facebook and Instagram accounts "linked to the Myanmar military." At least 2.5 million people "followed at least one of these Facebook Pages," the company added. "We removed 425 Facebook Pages, 17 Facebook Groups, 135 Facebook accounts and 15 Instagram accounts in Myanmar for engaging in coordinated inauthentic behavior on Facebook. As part of our ongoing investigations into this type of behavior in Myanmar, we discovered that these seemingly independent news, entertainment, beauty and lifestyle Pages were linked to the Myanmar military, and to the Pages we removed for coordinated inauthentic behavior in Myanmar in August. This kind of behavior is not allowed on Facebook under our misrepresentation policy because we don't want people or organizations creating networks of accounts to mislead others about who they are, or what they're doing."

Facebook testing search ads may unlock new revenue stream, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post kept his Buy rating and $190 price target on Facebook (FB), saying there is potential for "high value search activity" on its platform if its testing of search ads within the Marketplace section - as reported by TechCrunch - bears fruit. The analyst notes that the report anticipates the search ad testing to be rolled out with a small set of auto and e-commerce advertisers, modeling that the company could generate up to $5B in annual search related ad revenue under the assumption of offering a 75% discount to Google's (GOOGL) revenue per search. Post maintains his positive view on Facebook and its monetization opportunities.

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." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
