In a report published Wednesday, Jefferies & Company reiterated its Buy rating on Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), and raised its price target from $30.00 to $32.00.

Jefferies noted, “We reaffirm Buy as revenue and EPS edged expectations in a solid 3Q, despite a $52MM FX headwind. The qtr saw weakness in Payments & Other, no change from 2Q. But the real story is the ad business, which beat our ests despite having ~11 new products like Offers remaining in nascent stages. Mobile progress is also impressive, already accounting for 14% of ad rev. We are raising our PT to $32 as we take up our out-year ad rev ests.”

Facebook closed on Tuesday at $19.50.
