Facebook estimates and price target lowered at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley expects "solid" Q3 results from Facebook, but sees consensus estimates "migrating lower" following the print on early 2020 operating expenditure guidance. Once the reset occurs, the story looks good for 2020, with Instagram Checkout set to expand in participants and add features, ramping monetization in the Instagram Explore, and continued resurgence in core Facebook ad spend, Walmsley tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. He lowered his 2020 earnings per share estimate for Facebook to $9.45 from $9.81, and price target for $230 from $235, while keeping a Buy rating on the shares.

Match Group upgraded to Outperform at Oppenheimer
As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein upgraded Match Group (MTCH) to Outperform from Perform, with a price target of $89. The analyst notes that the stock is down 27% from its highs on an overall correction in momentum names, confusion surrounding a likely debt transfer as part ofthe spinoff from IAC (IAC) and concerns over the FTC lawsuit. Helfstein is now less concerned about competition from Facebook (FB) Dating, and highlights that 3P download data shows an acceleration in Tinder and localized offerings. Lastly, his survey work indicates that only 44% of U.S. singles are currently using an online dating product, suggesting material growth in overall usage.

Rosenblatt a buyer of Facebook shares into Q3 report
Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz is a buyer of Facebook shares into the company's Q3 results on Wednesday, October 30. Demand side indications remain strong for both News Feed and Instagram as respective return on ad spend remains at the top end of advertiser buys, Zgutowicz tells investors in a research note. However, with Facebook "under a regulator microscope," the analyst does not expect a "big" beat and raise quarter, but rather a modest beat and reduction to 2019 expense growth guidance. With the stock trading at 19 times estimated 2020 earnings, a modest beat will satisfy "the bar," contends Zgutowicz. He reiterates a Buy rating on Facebook with a $242 price target.

Jefferies selective on Internet into Q3, most positive on Alphabet and Facebook
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill, who is "generally positive" on Internet sector fundamentals, tells investors to remain selective ahead of Q3 earnings. The analyst is most bullish on Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), Expedia (EXPE), and Wix.com (WIX). He remains underweight TripAdvisor (TRIP), Shutterstock (SSTK), and Endurance (EIGI). Thill is most positive on Alphabet and Facebook. Alphabet's setup is better in the second half of the year relative to the first half due to easier comps, healthy core advertising, momentum in Google Cloud, and expanded hardware line-up ahead of the holidays, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He also likes Facebook's setup due to easier second half comps, recent product innovation on Instagram Commerce, and improvements to the core Facebook app. In e-commerce, Thill is a buyer of Amazon.com (AMZN) on any pullback. In travel, he like Expedia (EXPE) over Booking Holdings (BKNG). The analyst also views the recent selloff in Match Group (MTCH) shares as a buying opportunity.

Square reported 'notable' deceleration in GPV, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said the deceleration in gross payment volume, or GPV, growth reported by Square (SQ) this quarter was somewhat disappointing and "notable" given the strong U.S. consumer spending trends reported by other Payments players, including Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). Combining this with the "deviation from Square's traditional beat-and-raise story" made him less positive about the report, although his calendar 2019 forecasts remain largely intact, said Faucette, who keeps an Equal Weight rating and $74 price target on Square shares.

MasterCard price target raised to $325 from $310 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey raised his price target on MasterCard (MA) to $325 and kept his Buy rating, saying he expects the company to maintain its 10% or more EBITDA premium relative to Visa (V) and PayPal (PYPL). The analyst believes that MasterCard has a more durable organic revenue growth and offers a "differentiated competitive strategy" with its Real-Time Payments, adding that its monetization can be bolstered further by B2B products, cross-border payments, bill payments, point-of-sale technology, and other initiatives.

PayPal payment processor deal beats card networks to China, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Joseph Vafi said Paypal's (PYPL) disclosure of its controlling stake in Chinese payment player GoPay has material strategic implications longer term. The analyst notes the deal allowed PayPal to beat both Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) into the Chinese market and could be a conduit to drive meaningful cross-border payments volume allowing it to continue to sustain mid 20% payment volume for the next several years. Vafi reiterated his Buy rating and $118 price target on PayPal shares.

MasterCard price target raised to $315 from $291 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette raised his price target on MasterCard shares to $315 from $291 following the company's Investment Community Meeting last week. The intra-quarter data shared by the company should ease some near-term macro concerns and the event left him feeling confident in "the key pillars" of his Overweight thesis, Faucette tells investors. MasterCard is also making notable progress on its longer term initiatives, which should support growth beyond the company's 3-year outlook, added Faucette.
