Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) stock is gaining renewed upside momentum
Investor fund flows relative to Facebook shares turned favorable for the stock into the turn of the year.
The power of Facebook’s business model should reassert the case for the growth stock and draw investors back in as the company reports its earnings results each quarter.
Facebook shares are compelling for purchase today and set for outperformance due to FB’s reasonable valuation on modest and likely understated growth expectations.
My 12-month price target of $221 presents investors today with a 32% upside opportunity at a comfortable margin of safety.
