Facebook, Twitter not invited to White House social media summit, CNN reports

The White House has not extended invitations to Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) to attend its upcoming social media summit, CNN's Oliver Darcy reports, citing people familiar with the matter. The sources say they believe the summit will not be a serious attempt to discuss issues like privacy or security, but rather "would amount to a right-wing grievance session." The Washington Post reported last week that the White House has invited to the event a "number of right-wing luminaries who have been extremely critical of social media companies," some of whom have claimed that companies like Facebook and Twitter harbor bias against conservatives and censor their speech.

Facebook price target raised to $230 from $220 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his price target for Facebook to $230 from $220 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The social media giant closed yesterday down $1.18 to $187.66. The analyst expects Facebook's sales growth to re-accelerate to 27% excluding currency in Q4 from 25.5% in Q3. Walmsley highlights the company's easing comps, improving checks around the Stories ad unit performance and pricing, and his belief that Instagram Checkout can expand beyond the initial beta partners and drive more ad spend this holiday period. He continues to view Facebook as his top pick in mega cap Internet, "with several levers for the shares to move higher over the near and medium term." Walmsley recommends adding to positions here ahead of the Q2 earnings preview season.

Facebook ads in Explore could add $1B in revenue by 2021, says Morgan Stanley
After Facebook announced yesterday that it will introduce ads into Instagram's Explore tab for the first time, Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he sees a greater than $1B revenue opportunity by 2021 from this monetization, pointing to Explore's strong engagement and use. If Explore users grow to 600M and Explore monetizes at $2.00 per user by 2021, it would add about $1.2B, or about 1%, to 2021 revenue and from an EPS perspective this equates to about 2% upside to his current estimate using a conservative EBIT margin assumption, Nowak tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating and $210 price target on Facebook shares.

Facebook price target raised to $225 from $200 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould raised his price target for Facebook to $225 from $200 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. The Libra initiative will help "balance the narrative" on Facebook to innovation as opposed to privacy and regulation, and is another step towards monetization of its messaging platforms, Gould tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes Facebook will continue to beat and raise on quarterly earnings as "engagement has held despite the privacy issues." Advertisers simply have few alternatives that match the company's reach and targeting capability, stays Gould.

Jefferies survey shows most unlikely to use Facebook cryptocurrency
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill believes Facebook's Libra is unlikely to be a near-term "game-changer" for the company after he surveyed 600 U.S. social media users. Most of those surveyed said they were unlikely to use the cryptocurrency, Thill tells investors in a research note. A lack of trust in Facebook and existing mobile payment wallets were cited as impediments to adoption, explains the analyst. Thill, however, remains bullish on Facebook's core advertising opportunity. He sees $10 of earnings per share in two years and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $230 price target.

Buy
Twitter initiated with a Buy at Loop Capital
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould initiated Twitter with a Buy rating and a price target of $55. The analyst contends that the catch-up in the company's monetization over the past year can continue as user engagement grows further. Gould adds that while that monetization upswing justifies his price target, Twitter also offers "home-run potential", saying that the company is best positioned to capture an opportunity of a "mass-market use case for an interest network."

Pullback in Twitter stock offers buying opportunity, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $55 price target on Twitter, saying that yesterday's 3% pullback in its stock price following cautious commentary from another sell-side firm offers investors a "buying opportunity". The analyst notes that the company's user engagement story "continues to show solid improvement" with more conversion among users from "casual" to daily. Gould also believes that budget allocations by brand advertisers to Twitter will continue to increase as the industry chases the growth rate of its engagement. The analyst further believes that direct-response advertising will add "another pillar" to Twitter's monetization story.
