Joe Magyer of Lakehouse Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on Facebook (US: FB) at Best Ideas 2019.

Thesis summary:

Facebook may seem to be on the ropes given the bad press it has received. However, the user base and revenue are growing at very healthy rates. The business also owns three other fast-growing platforms — Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger — that each have more than one billion monthly active users and are at earlier stages of monetization.

The business is highly cash generative and has more than 9% of its market capitalization in net cash, affording downside protection and strategic optionality, and the shares are deeply our of favor at around 37% below recent highs.
