Sterne Agee Ups Price Target For Facebook Shares

Analyst Arvind Bhatia said in a note to clients, as reported by MarketWatch:

We continue to believe Facebook’s market opportunity remains quite large. With improved visibility on the company’s mobile transactions, the majority of the lock-up expirations now behind us, and the potential opportunity from new products, we remain positive on Facebook shares.
