  • More monetization with video equates to huge profits extending its market reach let alone monetizing
    instagram. That's a whole lot of $BILLIONS of new revenue. GL

    "Facebook's video monetization plan is here.
    by Erin Griffith

    Its program gives video creators 55% of ad revenue.

    Video has taken over Facebook, with daily views on the platform growing four-fold to a whopping four billion in just a year. But until now, video creators haven’t had a way to make money on the platform.

    That changes today. The company introduced its plan to monetize videos and share the revenue with creators. Facebook’s revenue split with creators is the same as YouTube’s: 55% of the money earned from ads goes to the creator and 45% to Facebook. The program begins with “a few dozen” partners, including Tastemade, NBA, Hearst, Funny or Die, and Fox Sports."

    Yes Greece may be big news and it served its purpose in sending markets down...not to its 20dma, nor it's 50dma, nor its 100dma....but to its 200dma. Greece brought markets to a technical buy level, imo.

    As a investor's perspective, I am holding FB long term. GL

    ilovedthe80_s, yes instagram is growing super fast and advertsiers are well aware of it. Every demographic who is on social media have added instagram to their daily lives including celebrities which in turn attracts more subs.

    With NFL striking a deal with FB last season locks in FB as the premier platform for advertising and that sets a trend for many other large advertisers to follow, imo. GL

    SPX right at around its 200dma. Dow at and those levels. Is it a yummy trade. GL

    Cantor Raises price target from $92 to $100. Yes as TV advertising and print media as well transitioning over to digital FB will reap the most benefits as they are already favored by advertisers. GL

    "Cantor Raises Price Target for Facebook Inc (FB) as Online Overtakes TV in Global Ad Spend

    July 1, 2015 8:48 AM EDT by Scott Fields, Editor in Insights • Technology • Top-Rated Analysts

    In a research report issued today, Cantor analyst Youssef Squali offered some positive commentary on Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) in response to growing shifts in advertising dollars online, mobile usage, and the company’s new collection of mobile-first advertising offerings. The analyst reiterated a Buy rating on the stock and raised the price target to $100 (from $92), which represents a potential upside of 17% from where the stock is currently trading."

  • Keep in mind FB purchased instagram for a mere $1 Billion and now estimated worth of upwards $35 Billion.already.
    Instagram's subscribers are growing rapidly and FB will monetize that business soon enough...to the tune of "multibillion-billion-dollar business." GL

    "Instagram will be Facebook's next multibillion-dollar business
    Business Insider By Matt Rosoff
    31 minutes ago"

    "Facebook is just about to turn on the money jets for Instagram, the photo-sharing app it acquired in 2012 for over $1 billion. (Remember when that seemed like a lot of money for a tech startup?)

    Specifically, Facebook is going to let Instagram advertisers use Facebook's targeting tools to reach users based on their interests.

    How much money are we talking about here? According to an analyst note yesterday from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Instagram could be a $300 million business next year, growing more than 12x to over $3.8 billion by 2020. That $3.8 billion is about equal to Facebook's total quarterly revenue today. "

    "This is one of my favorite set-ups."

    Examining the chart, Ross finds that Facebook shares have recently traded in a "coil or triangle" pattern, from which the stock broke out on Monday.

    "We want to trade strong in the direction of the break," Ross said. "We think that projects measured upside to $95 first, with ultimate upside of $105."

    The stock rose as high as $87.91 on Tuesday.

    Plenty of options traders also see a move to $95 ahead, according to Stacey Gilbert, head of derivative strategy with Susquehanna.

    "The market's implying around a 25 percent probability that Facebook shares are above $95 by September," Gilbert said.

    Additionally, "the market is saying that it's less risky than it has been in years," since the overall cost of both call and put options on Facebook has fallen.

    Analysts tend to be positive on the stock as well. In a Monday note, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target to $120, reasoning that with its ownership of Oculus VR, "FB is the best play on the next computer paradigm of virtual reality," and its presence in the virtual reality space "gives us greater confidence in Facebook's ability to sustain usership and revenue growth across its portfolio of products over the next 10+ years."

    Speaking in terms of "the world"...Global advertising is a $700 Billion business and FB taking marketshare away from the best ie Google so there is plenty of growth in that respect let alone taking in a chunk of new ad revenue from traditional media coming over to digital. And lets not forget the future with Oculus. GL

  • FB is right up there.

    "Analyst Offers 4 Focus Call Stocks to Buy Now"

    By Lee Jackson June 23, 2015 10:55 am EDT

    "As the market continues to astound and press ever higher, stock picking is becoming ever more crucial. With the S&P 500 trading at multiples not seen since the late 1990s, investors need to carefully pick core holdings and new portfolio additions. A new research report from Piper Jaffray zeroes in on the firm’s top Focus Calls for investors to buy now."

    "Facebook

    This incredible, fast-growing company remains the face of social media, and a challenger seems nowhere in sight. Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) has been grinding higher over the past year after a big run up in 2013 to early 2014 when the stock almost doubled, and the social media behemoth does not look to be slowing down. The revenue change over the past year was an astounding 54.69%, and the stock comes in as a top Internet pick at Cowen.

    With Instagram, Premium video and Graph Search capabilities, some analysts feel that the company can drive revenue growth even without a huge increase in advertising placement. Many analysts agree that investor sentiment is very positive and that mobile advertising growth via different silos can be added this year, in 2016 and beyond. They also reported that Instagram is opening its platform for advertisers, particularly direct response advertisers via new direct response ad units like mobile app install ads. With a talented and experienced sales team, this should only continue to drive revenue higher."

    FB has got all their bases covered, up front with their investments, and delivered what's promised. Got instagram to cover all demographic, Oculus for the future. Already taking ad marketshare from Google and gaining video audience from Youtube. Ad revenue in the Billions. Put it away for next 10 years. imo
