Topeka Capital analyst Victor Anthony is a fan of “the web”. Not only does he make recommendations on companies like Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), but he consistently outperforms the S&P-500. He is currently ranked number 28 out of 2303 analysts, but with a record including a 65% success rate of recommended stocks and an average return of +5.6% over the S&P 500, Victor might be moving up to the top 25 any day now.
Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) is just one of the companies that has helped bring Victor success. Recently Victor initiated coverage on TWTR with a BUY rating and a $54.00 2014 year-end target. Victor said, “we believe that Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)’s user and advertising monetization platform is in the early innings. We see a well-defined ecosystem with strong network effects developing around Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) that should lead to out-sized shareholder returns for years to come.” Victor walked away from that recommendation with +60.8% measured performance relative to the S&P-500! And just the other day Victor recommended BUY TWTR bringing him +21.9%!
