Guru Investment Theses on Facebook Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Facebook - Jul 13, 2016

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), the world’s largest social network, in our view is the largest beneficiary of the shift in consumer engagement to mobile. Mobile is no longer a device or an application. It has become a way of life. About four years ago, we participated in Facebook’s IPO at $38 per share. As user engagement transitioned from desktop to mobile, growth slowed and the stock collapsed. We thought Facebook was a unique company with real competitive advantages and viewed mobile monetization as a question of “when” rather than “if.” Market overemphasis on short-term results allowed us to build our position at an average cost of $26 per share. Facebook is currently trading at $114, or three times our initial investment.



We think Facebook will continue to grow. It is using its leadership position to offer targeted advertising capabilities at scale. The company is in the early stages of monetizing online video and Instagram, which have begun to contribute to incremental revenue growth. WhatsApp and Oculus provide additional avenues for potential growth opportunities.

GAMCO Global Growth Fund Comments on Facebook Inc. - Feb 22, 2016

Facebook Inc.’s (NASDAQ:FB) (2.6%) (FB – $104.66 – NASDAQ) mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what's going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them. As of September 30, 2015, Facebook had 1.55 billion monthly active users (MAUs) worldwide and an average of 1.01 billion daily active users (DAUs), creating a powerful targeted advetising platform.

Baron Funds Comments on Facebook - Jan 27, 2016

Shares of Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), the world’s largest social network, were up 16% in the fourth quarter and 34% in 2015. It was a year ago that we argued that the word “mobile” was no longer describing a device, but rather a behavior. Facebook’s early focus on driving and improving consumer engagement on mobile platforms is starting to bear fruit. The company is the obvious beneficiary of a structural shift of advertising dollars from “analog” to digital, and with one billion active monthly mobile users, Facebook has positioned itself as one of the largest beneficiaries of the mobile way of life by presenting global advertisers with, in our view, the most compelling advertising platform. We believe the company is in the middle stages of scaling and building out its monetization structures and stands to benefit from expected improvements in the price of advertising on its platform. We think Facebook is continually expanding the size of its addressable market by acquiring and investing in newer synergistic offerings such as Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus VR.

Baron Funds Comments on Facebook Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Facebook, Inc. is pioneering a new age of people-based advertising – targeting relevant ads to actual people or audiences, not content. In the United States, during 2014, mobile accounted for 24% of consumer media time, but only 8% of advertising spend. Facebook accounts for a full 20% of mobile time spent in the U.S. The “catch up” of ad spend to media time provides a powerful secular tailwind to Facebook and other mobile-centric advertising platforms.
