Facebook Inc. advanced 4 percent to a record price and posted the S&P 500’s biggest gain.
A Stifel Nicolaus & Co. analyst, Jordan Rohan, raised his price target on the social-networking company to $82 from $72, citing Facebook’s growing share of marketing spending. Rohan has a “buy” rating on the stock and says his firm’s checks suggest “marketers view Facebook as a strategic communications platform, capable of establishing and reinforcing relationships with consumers.”
