Analyst Note| Ali Mogharabi |
The Joe Biden administration is threatening to ban TikTok from the U.S. and talks about a possible sale of its U.S. operations to an American company have increased. At the same time, China may not approve a sale, as reported by The Information. In our view, the uncertainty surrounding the possible ban or sale of TikTok could benefit Snap, Meta’s Instagram, and Google’s YouTube. We are maintaining our $154, $260, and $16 fair value estimates for Alphabet, Meta, and Snap, respectively.
