Facebook CEO doubles down on political ads policy, CBS News says

Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg reiterated his support of the social media giant's move to not take down political ads that contain false information, CBS News reports. "What I believe is that in a democracy, it's really important that people can see for themselves what politicians are saying, so they can make their own judgments. And, you know, I don't think that a private company should be censoring politicians or news," Zuckerberg told "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King. "But a small group of your employees... about 200 wrote a letter saying that they wish that you would reconsider. 'Because,' they said, 'free speech and paid speech are not the same,'" King said, adding, "Do they have a point?" "Well, this is a clearly a very complex issue, and a lot of people have-- have a lot of different opinions," Zuckerberg said. "At the end of the day, I just think that in a democracy, people should be able to see for themselves what politicians are saying." Zuckerberg later added that U.S. President Donald Trump did not discourage him from banning political advertisements on Facebook during a meeting with the president in October, the report notes.

Daiwa upgrades Facebook to Buy, says earnings concerns 'largely alleviated'
Daiwa analyst Satoshi Tanaka last night upgraded Facebook to Buy from Outperform with a price target of $250, up from $235. The company's Q3 results and 2020 outlook last week go a "long way to alleviate concerns," Tanaka tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees "clearer visibility" from 2020 as well as higher upside after the stock's recent pullback. Facebook's revenue growth slowdown is more moderate than previously anticipated while its guidance for total expenses remains within expectations, contends the analyst. He believes the "negative repercussions" stemming from the implementation of Europe's new data protection regulation and Facebook's data leak "controversy are clearer now that a year has passed." Concerns on the earnings front "have largely been alleviated," says Tanaka.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at Daiwa with analyst Satoshi Tanaka saying the company's Q3 results and 2020 outlook last week go a "long way to alleviate concerns." 2. Beyond Meat (BYND) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Alexia Howard saying she is making a "straightforward valuation call" with the shares down 66% from their peak. 3. NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Vijay Rakesh saying the company's auto segment is showing signs of recovery, with easier compares and content wins. 4. Amgen (AMGN) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Cantor Fitzgerald with analyst Alethia Young saying recent events have set the stage for a "clean base business and pipeline story" for Amgen in 2020. 5. Autoliv (ALV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Vijay Rakesh saying an improving 2020-2021 auto outlook with easier compares, continued airbag market share gains versus Takata, and lower product launch costs position Autoliv well. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

JPMorgan adds Lyft to list of top Internet picks
Earlier, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth added Lyft (LYFT) to his list of top picks in the internet sector following third quarter earnings, saying the ride-hailing giant reported "significantly" better than expected revenue and EBITDA as it continues to take share of an increasingly rational U.S. rideshare market, thereby accelerating its path to profitability. Anmuth said that Lyft, which joins Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), and Netflix (NFLX) in his top picks in the sector, also reiterated its expectation for consolidated EBITDA profit by the fourth quarter of 2021, though he continues to believe core rideshare can be profitable "well before that," likely sometime in 2020. The analyst, who has an Overweight rating on Lyft, noted that he removed Twitter (TWTR) and IAC/InterActive (IAC) from his top picks.

Holiday shopping season appears to have started out strong, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Matthew McClintock said his checks on Thursday evening indicate that physical store traffic was strong at both Best Buy (BBY) and Target (TGT), which he thinks "should be viewed as even more impressive than initial indications that e-commerce sales have been stronger than expected." He also noted that some retailers had such strong e-commerce traffic that website performance suffered, listing Facebook (FB), Nordstrom (JWN) and Costco (COST) as some examples. The Fly notes that the S&P Retail Index SPDR (XRT) may react today to headlines regarding checks on retail spending on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
