Facebook Headed to $42 Per Share: Munster

Facebook could still deliver 35 percent year-over-year growth, despite its stock having dropped precipitously since its IPO, Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster said Monday on CNBC.

On “Fast Money,” Munster said that the long-term potential of the social media giant cannot be discounted, adding that the company still had “three major levers they can pull in terms of monetization.”

Facebook stock was down 9 percent, following an article in Barron’s that argued the company's shares are worth only $15.

With a more expensive valuation than Google, Facebook had more upside potential, he argued.

Meanwhile, Munster had an “overweight” rating on the stock and a price target of $42 per share.

“If they don’t deliver in September, we’re going to have to rethink some things,” he said.
