Finance.

“The call is probably for a 5 to 10% pullback and that’s what the call is and that’s no surprise. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is as growthy of a growth stock as you can get. We do like it here at Stifel Nicolaus. We have a ‘Buy’ rating on it with a price target of roughly $90 to $95 a share, but investors have to be cautious about the volatility of the company and know what they are getting into […],” Morganlander said.

Morganlander believes that in the course of next 24 months Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is going to see a revenue growth of over 35%, which means revenues for 2015 will stand at $15 billion and for 2016 they will amount to $22 billion. He considers that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is a kind of investment where investors need to be pragmatic and if someone is a growth investor, they ought to put a small portion of their money in Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s stock and profit from its volatility.

“It looks good and that’s why the downgrade based on stock performance is a bit of head scratcher for me. Really a stock coming off a new high isn’t a reason to sell it, when it has got a lot of other great things going for it […],” Wald added.
