Facebook named a best Internet idea for 2019 at JPMorgan

JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth names Facebook (FB) a best idea for 2019 along with Amazon.com (AMZN) and Twitter (TWTR). Facebook experienced significant volatility in 2018 and closed the year down 2%, underperforming Internet peers which were up 7% market cap-weighted and flat on average, Anmuth tells investors in a research note partially titled "We Expect Facebook To Climb The Wall Of Worry." Privacy and data concerns, platform transitions, slowing growth, margin compression, regulation, and "extremely negative" press have all weighed on the stock in recent months, adds the analyst. He believes investor sentiment on Facebook "remains negative here" in early 2019. However, Anmuth thinks the core Facebook business is "stickier than many think." Further, he believes the company's revenue deceleration is manageable and its earnings growth should accelerate into the mid-teens in 2020. Lastly, the stock's valuation is "compelling" at current levels, argues Anmuth. He keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook with a $195 price target. The social media giant closed yesterday up 10c to $138.05.

Facebook survey shows stable engagement trends, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said his quarterly survey of internet users shows response rates for Facebook engagement are stable/increasing for the third consecutive quarter following declines in early/mid August 2018. He also said Instagram engagement growth is now on par with Facebook among the younger cohort, which is a positive given Instagram's contributions to revenue growth. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $195 price target on Facebook shares.

Snap downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry downgraded Snap (SNAP) to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $6 from $10. The stock closed yesterday down 11c to $5.68. The analyst believes Snap's sequential user declines are likely to continue in Q4. In order to generate a Twitter-like turnaround, the company will have to return to user growth, Terry tells investors in a research note. However, he sees uncertainty around Snap's new Android app and its ability to reaccelerate daily active user growth, particularly in the midst of growing competition from Facebook's (FB) Instagram and ByteDance's Tik Tok. The analyst, nonetheless, still believes there is "significant value" in Snap's users.

Baird names Amazon, Alphabet among best internet stocks to own for rebound
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian pointed out in a note to investors before the open that the number of searches on Google for the term "recession" has more than doubled since October, hitting a recent peak in early December. However, he thinks it is reasonable to consider a more optimistic outcome, namely a rebound, and looked back at the past four market "corrections" to see which stocks in large-cap internet fared. In each of the six-month periods he analyzed, Activision (ATVI), Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOGL) traded higher with the lowest standard deviations in the group, Sebastian noted, adding that he thinks lingering overhangs on Facebook shares could dampen its recovery this time around. Amazon (AMZN) was the best overall performer, while eBay (EBAY) was the laggard, each with higher standard deviations, Sebastian added. Overall, he named Activision, Alphabet and Amazon as his "AAA" best bets in a rebound scenario.

Amazon.com initiated with a Buy at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser started Amazon.com with a Buy rating and $1,920 price target. Amazon is one of the world's largest retailers and also owns one of the world's largest software businesses, Wieser tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that despite Amazon's size, the company's opportunities are "mostly unconstrained based on a successful track record of capitalizing on consumer and IT department spending."

Piper ups targets for Twilio, Zendesk and makes 'wild' Software predictions
In a research note previewing the year ahead for Application and Infrastructure Software, Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin raised his price target for Twilio (TWLO) to $110 from $95 and for Zendesk (ZEN) to $85 from $72.50. The analyst keeps Overweight ratings on both names. His top picks for 2019 are Twilio, Zendesk and Adobe (ADBE). Zukin believes all three possess a combination of "strong fundamentals given their respective leadership positions in large markets and positive numbers revisions on already discounted valuations vs. peers." The analyst also made some "wild predictions of potential industry shaking events." He admits these are "low probability" predictions. The first one is Amazon.com (AMZN) spinning out Web Services. The second "wild" prediction is Oracle (ORCL) going private. The third is Google (GOOG, GOOGL) buying ServiceNow (NOW). And the fourth is Salesforce agreeing to merge with Workday (WDAY) in an all-stock transaction.

Twitter selloff on platform health concerns overdone, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth said he believes today's weakness in Twitter shares is overdone, noting that the company stepped up its platform health efforts in 3Q17 and that key marketing industry leaders from Unilever (UL) and Bank of America (BAC) have praised its efforts. He also believes marketers and agencies are "well aware" of the pros and cons of Twitter's open, public platform. The analyst, who thinks Twitter's platform health efforts will ultimately have a positive impact on engagement and advertising, also noted that Twitter's data licensing customers do not gain access to users' private Direct Messages and the company does not sell individual user data. Anmuth maintains an Overweight rating and $45 price target on Twitter and still considers the stock a top pick for 2019.
