(NASDAQ:FB) are climbing after Credit Suisse upgraded the stock in a note to investors last night. Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju now expects Facebook to obtain more revenue, on average, from each of its users than the firm had previously anticipated. New products that Facebook is developing should enable the company to obtain more revenue over the medium to long term without boosting its ad loads, the analyst contends.
