Argus remains positive on Facebook as a 'dominant social media site'
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner kept his Buy rating and $206 price target on Facebook, saying that in spite of the "challenging near term outlook" of slowing revenue and rising costs in 2019, the company justifies a bullish stance based on its position as the "dominant social media site". The analyst contends that Facebook's Messenger and WhatsApp have all reached a critical mass of users and continue to be monetized, while the 26% decline in its stock price last year has been a "positive for valuation".

Amazon.com named a 2019 best Internet idea at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth names Amazon.com (AMZN) a best idea for 2019 along with Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR). Amazon shares increased 28% in 2018 but remain well positioned in 2019 as Q1 revenue re-acceleration is likely, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. Further, he sees a "more compelling" valuation following the recent selloff and believes Web Services and advertising will drive 80 basis points of operating margin expansion to 6.0% in 2019. The analyst thinks Amazon will outperform again this year and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $2,100 price target.

Survey shows Amazon has large remaining addressable market, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's survey of 1,011 domestic internet users found that Amazon.com (AMZN) "penetration is still gradually increasing." Further, a second survey of 1,505 domestic internet users found that among top e-commerce platforms Amazon retains top share, with Facebook (FB) marketplace also showing good traction and Instagram "in relative shopping infancy," Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees the surveys as a continued positive for Amazon. He believes the company has a large addressable remaining domestic total addressable market of low-use consumers. Holiday spending data would suggest Amazon accounts for only 5% of eMarketer's estimated $1.002 trillion of overall 2018 domestic retail holiday spend, adds the analyst. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Amazon shares with a $2,050 price target. Further, there are favorable takeaways for Facebook from the survey, as the company's e-commerce effort has shown promising early growth, says Olson.

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.
