(A Top Pick Feb 27/20, Up 40%) Still really likes it, though it's gone sideways. Long-term, makes sense. Advertisers love it. Not expensive. Trades at 23x earnings, with a 21% EPS growth rate.

After Trump, users embrace sweet, more civil interaction in their social media, not rage and arguments. Zuckerberg is a great businessman, but FB's lack of moderation has cost him user trust. Winning back that trust is tough. Advertisers will pay more for Pinterest than FB--your ad may appear to ugly politics on FB, but next to a quilt on Pinterest.

All insiders are selling right now, whereas the firm continues to buy back shares. There will be an ESG aspect of company insiders selling shares when the firm is buying them back. Congress will probably come down on companies like this. However, insiders do have regular sell-programs. In general, corporate insiders have been massive sellers since the run-up.

(A Top Pick Jan 10/20, Up 19%) There is definite headwinds with regulatory oversight but there is still runway. Growth rate is around 20% and trading around 21x 2022. Price to growth, it is fine. Monthly active users just beat expectations. Average revenue per user is $10. A name you want to buy into asides the regulatory risk.

He may be the only one who expects an amazing report from them next week, based on so many small/medium businesses advertiser on their platform. If managers say anything about monetizing their other businesses, this can challenge new highs. They report Wednesday.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly FB has benefited from the upgrade by analysts at BMO, who are now calling for a $325 stock price target. They feel the company is poised to have eCommerce vertical integration within the platform become more seamless which will help with future revenues. As one of the big FANG companies, its PE of 31x earnings is cheap compared to the sector average of 84x. We would buy this with a stop-loss of $210, looking to achieve $325 -- potential upside of over 19%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $322.24)

Price target of $314. Being held back by regulatory issues. It's actually cheap. They have the resources to be a leader in AR. Stick with it.

Given political clouds from Washington They lead the charge in where society is going in social interaction and networking, but on the other side people are screaming that Facebook is not doing what they intended to do. Are they a publisher? Responsible for what users write? This is a very difficult question. Nobody wants to see terrorist acts appearing on social media, but how far can you pull back free speech? Tough question. For investors, people continue to love FB for its ongoing growth as user numbers and advertising levels continue to increase. They will continue to grow revenues, cash flows and earnings. The politics are a risk, but risk is inherent in any stock.

One of his top holdings. Not expensive. 24x earnings for 20-25% growth. Will benefit from long-term secular trend of more digital ads. Regulatory risks won't have a meaningful impact on earnings. If he had to choose between this and Google, he'd choose FB by a hair.

The anti-Facebook battle from Washington won't effect the stock, but this will drag on for a while as a political football. FB is a core advertising platform for many companies. Even if Facebook is forced to break up, it probably won't have a big, negative impact on the pieces.

Has owned it for a long time. They are one of the advertising giants. They had a great quarter. Trading at 22x 2022 earnings. Not bad for modelled growth of 28% EPS. It is a slam dunk. The risk is anti-trust regulations. He believes they will be okay and he is adding to the name.
