Facebook’s categorical source of revenue, selling advertisements on its platforms, has come under heated inspection newly due to purported election change exerted by Russia through the company’s platform. But, while not good for Facebook’s open image, it doesn’t seem to have put a hole in the company’s business, according to Credit Suisse researcher Stephen Ju.

“It is the rising advertiser inclination to spend a larger apportionment of budgets on some-more targeted buys at effective CPMs some-more than double that of the untargeted buy,” Ju pronounced in a new note to clients.

Ju pronounced that concerns about a negligence ad business at Facebook demeanour to be overblown. The social media hulk hasn’t combined a significant number of ads to its platform, but the cost of those ads has left up as advertisers have opted for some-more costly targeted ads, lifting the normal cost per ad.

Increasing the normal selling cost of its ads is good news for Facebook, in that it doesn’t need to boost the series of ads on its height to see a strike in revenue. Wall Street analysts, like Ju, were endangered Facebook would eventually hit a wall in the series of ads it could place in its feed and therefore see business stall. But the boost in the normal selling cost seems to have solved those fears.

Facebook is operative by issues around its targeted ad system, like the ability for advertisers to use extremist terms when shopping ads, or the inclination of bad actors to use targeted advertisements to widespread feign information, in the case of the Russian-bought ads during the 2016 presidential election.

Despite the controversies, it looks as if Facebook’s promotion business is still healthy. Ju thinks the boost in the normal selling cost of Facebook’s ads could lead to a $0.11 strike in the company’s yearly earnings to $5.73 per share in 2017. The organisation lifted its cost aim for Facebook to $235 from $190 in expectation of its third entertain results, which are due out on Nov 1.

Facebook is up 47.34% this year.
