Facebook (FB) shares crashed on Monday after an outage that took down the main social media platform as well as WhatsApp and Instagram. The company is also under pressure after a whistleblower has made allegations about Facebook’s approach to such issues as hate speech and how young people are affected by social media.

But we are maintaining our US$407 Facebook fair value estimate and the wide-moat firm is now trading in 4-star territory after yesterday’s decline. The stock has been hit by many negative headlines regarding the firm’s policies, in addition to its main properties not working for a few hours.
