Facebook to strengthen ad transparency rules ahead of 2019 elections

The company said, "Over the past two years, we have made massive investments to help protect the integrity of elections - not only addressing threats we've seen on our platform in the past, but also anticipating new challenges and responding to new risks...Here are some of the additional ways we are working to strengthen our platform ahead of elections in 2019. Earlier this month in Nigeria, we began temporarily disallowing electoral ads purchased from outside the country ahead of the election and will implement the same policy in Ukraine ahead of their election. In advance of the European Parliament election, in late March we will launch additional tools in the EU to help prevent foreign interference and make political and issue advertising on Facebook more transparent. Advertisers will need to be authorized to purchase political ads; we'll give people more information about ads related to politics and issues; and we'll create a publicly searchable library of these ads for up to seven years. The library will include information on the range of the ads' budget, number of people they reached and demographics of who saw the ad, including age, gender and location. These transparency tools for electoral ads will also launch in India in February and in Ukraine and Israel before their elections, with a global expansion before the end of June...To expand on work we did to fight misinformation in advance of the Brazil presidential election and the US midterms, we are planning to set up two new regional operations centers, focused on election integrity, located in our Dublin and Singapore offices. This will allow our global teams to better work across regions in the run-up to elections, and will further strengthen our coordination and response time between staff in Menlo Park and in-country. These teams will add a layer of defense against fake news, hate speech and voter suppression, and will work cross-functionally with our threat intelligence, data science, engineering, research, community operations, legal and other teams...Our work to fight fake news continues to improve. Across News Feed, we follow a three-part framework to improve the quality and authenticity of stories. First, we remove content that violates our Community Standards, which help enforce the safety and security of the platform. Then, for content that does not directly violate our Community Standards, but still undermines the authenticity of the platform - like clickbait or sensational material - we reduce its distribution in News Feed, so less people see it. Finally, we inform people by giving them more context on the information they see in News Feed...We also continue to expand our third-party fact-checking program. Today, this program covers content in 16 languages, and we've rolled out the ability for fact-checkers to review photos and videos in addition to article links, because we know multimedia-based misinformation is making up a greater share of false news. When a fact-checker rates a post as false, we show it lower in News Feed to significantly reduce the number of people who see it and the likelihood it will spread further. Pages and domains that repeatedly share false news will be penalized with reduced distribution and they will not be able to monetize or advertise on Facebook. This helps curb the spread of financially-motivated false news." Reference Link

Facebook partner report shows success for Stories, says Deutsche Bank
Facebook marketing partner Nanigans published its Facebook Advertising Report for Q4, noting 124% growth in spend on the Stories format and "rapidly growing" cost-per-clock for the Stories format, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley tells investors in a research note titled "More evidence Stories ads success spreading." The analyst says the data broadly support his other conversations in the ad industry pointing to increasing uptake and efficacy of this new ad format. He keeps a Buy rating on Facebook shares.

Canada Goose downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo
As previously reported, Wells Fargo analyst Ike Boruchow downgraded Canada Goose (GOOS) to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target on the shares to C$68 from C$80. While the analyst remains confident on the trajectory of the Canada Goose brand and the fundamental story that has developed since their IPO in 2017, he feels the risk/reward is not as compelling as it once was. The analyst notes that the multi-national branded space has become more challenged in recent months, and not only is the stock more expensive today than it was following the company's IPO, but is also trading at a higher P/S multiple than any other brand has ever traded. When looking at search and social trends, Boruchow also sees a recent slowdown in both Google (GOOGL) trend search and Facebook's (FB) Instagram engagement over the holiday quarter as somewhat concerning.

JPMorgan remains positive on Facebook into Q4 results
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth remains positive on Facebook into the company's Q4 results on January 30. The analyst views investor sentiment as mixed heading into the print. He expects to see "steady overall engagement" with Instagram strength and core Facebook facing an easier time spent comp from a year ago. Further, Anmuth believes expectations for 40%-50% operating expenditure growth in 2019 is well understood. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $195 price target.

Facebook price target lowered to $163 from $175 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon lowered his price target on Facebook to $163, saying that while he expects higher revenues from Instagram and Stories ads, he also sees lower sales from the company's IG Feed and total advertising based on last week's AdExchanger industry conference. The analyst also keeps his Market Perform rating on Facebook, which he sees as reflective of his more cautious view on the company's margins. Salmon adds that visibility for Facebook remains low, and in order for the company to outperform, its Custom Audiences capabilities must not be hindered by regulation, and its agencies/brands must not be hurt by negative press.
