Why Twitter Is A Strong Buy

Twitter (TWTR) is a public, real-time, global platform where any user can create a Tweet and any user can follow other users. The platform is unique in its simplicity: Tweets are limited to 140 characters of text. This constraint makes it easy for anyone to quickly create, distribute and discover content that is consistent across our platform and optimized for mobile devices. As a result, Tweets drive a high velocity of information exchange that makes Twitter uniquely live.

For a long time we had no good news on Twitter. This social media stock was rated a SELL or STRONG SELL by our models for years at a time following its IPO. Well, that has changed now and as the stock has powered up our models have noticed. We now rate the company a STRONG BUY.

The company has made changes recently that made investors notice--280 character tweets, more video, the return of Jack Dorsey as CEO. The company also avoided the sort of privacy debacle that engulfed Facebook in the wake of the 2016 election cycle and then Cambridge Analytica revelations.

In addition, the current occupant of the White House has done a great deal to popularize the platform as his every tweet leads to massive amounts of coverage and discussion of the service. Is this a good thing? Well, a wise man once said there is no bad publicity...

Twitter's earnings have been decent lately, with last Quarter's results beating expectations handily. Back in April, the firm reported revenue of $655 million, beating the consensus estimate of $605 million. That was up 21% from the year-ago period. It was the best quarterly growth in two years. The all-important ad revenue rose 21% to $575 million.

Twitter reported adjusted earnings of 16 cents per share, above the consensus of 12 cents. The company ended the quarter with 336 million monthly active users. The consensus forecast was about 335 million The company will again report results in late July.

Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that TWITTER INC has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year.
