Stock of the Day: Facebook


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Facebook has been in the news a lot lately. More so than usual, if you can believe that. Just yesterday, Wall Street analysts came out with their thoughts on the company, and JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs were particularly bullish. And, of course, Facebook recently announced that Sheryl Sandberg is joining its board. David sees a lot of positives in some of this news. The Sandberg addition was long overdue. And there's a lot of evidence to suggest that Facebook has been working hard to help advertisers get their messages out. Ultimately, John and David view Facebook as a buy, and they'd pick up more shares at today's price.
