Heading into its Wednesday earnings report, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) is decidedly well liked.

The firm’s 42 Buy ratings are tempered by just two Sells and one Hold, according to TipRanks, which records an average price target of $191.33 with a range of $98 to $235.

Recent trends back the bulls. Apart from mixed results in the first quarter, Facebook has posted consistent beats since 2012, when its second quarter merely aligned with estimates.

At the same time, the stock has momentum behind it. Facebook broke $180 Monday to strike an all-time high, and it’s steadily risen over the last five years. As of Tuesday afternoon, shares were trading up 56 percent year to date, and consensus expected an additional 6.5-percent upside.
