Wunderlich Securities analyst Blake Harper reiterated a Hold rating and $35 price target on Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) ahead of Q2 results, saying MAUs are likely to come in below expectations.

Harper commented, "We expect Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) to report monthly active users (MAUs) in a range of 260-262 million, which is below the consensus of 267 million. Product and marketing changes to capitalize on the World Cup provided a boost to monthly active tweeting users (MAtUs) in the month of June to 126.9 million, which implies 1.1 million MAtUs were added during the quarter. We expect engagement and monetization to continue to be improving, which should help the company post strong revenues. However, we expect buy side and sell side expectations are still too aggressive on MAU growth and the company has struggled to meaningfully grow its user base."
