New York, October 26 (FinanceEnquiry.com) – Analyst Ross Sandler at Deutsche Bank Securities reiterates HOLD rating on the shares of Facebook, Inc (NASDAQ: FB). The 12-month target price has been raised from $22 to $24.
In a research note published on October 24, the analyst mentions that coming above the consensus, Facebook posted revenue of 3 percent. Moreover, on the back of Sponsored Stories in Newsfeed, which was roughly $200 million in third quarter of 2012 (up from $30 million expected in second quarter of 2012) and with $150 million coming from mobile ads, revenue of advertisement is re-accelerating.

With management of Facebook emphasizing the long term prospect for monetization of mobile, the attitude of the call was constructive.
Besides, letting EBITDA margin to augment 30 basis points Q/Q, growth of cash expense was only 67 percent Y/Y in third quarter, under the run rate of second quarter. By 3 percent and 4 percent, revenue of 2014 and EBITDA have been augmented, respectively. On a mixed average of 35x P/E, 15x EV/EBITDA and a target FCF yield of 3 percent on estimates of 2013 and 2104, target price of $24 is based. Monetization of mobile and deceleration of revenue have been comprised in the key risks. Furthermore, estimated historical P/E analysis for the years 2012 and 2013 are 36.8 x and 30.2 x, respectively, the analyst adds further.
