Facebook, Inc. (FB) stock has acted well in recent months despite ongoing privacy investigations and could test 2018’s all-time high at $219 in the third quarter. In addition, it won’t take extraordinary buying power to hit new highs and head toward $250, potentially making Facebook the first FAANG play to break out in 2019. That would provide a much-needed lift to rest of this elite group, although these stocks may still struggle to hit new highs in this economic cycle.
Facebook just announced the Libra cryptocurrency initiative, in which the new digital coin will be integrated into existing customer accounts.

The news caught bears by surprise, lifting the stock while putting a fire under the rest of this esoteric venue.
Of course, it’s popular to hate Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and the social monster they’ve created in the past decade, but active user numbers have held up well despite the long string of controversies and misfires. And unfortunately, this operation has become too big to fail in our futuristic environment, with millions of individuals and companies dependent on Facebook’s interactive applications to maintain personal relationships and grow businesses.
