Analysts are weighing in on tech stocks Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR), as well as mining firm Silver Wheaton Corp. (USA) (NYSE:SLW). Here's a quick roundup of today's brokerage notes on FB, TWTR, and SLW.

  • Ahead of this week's F8 developer's conference -- which is slated to kick off tomorrow -- FB saw its price target raised to $154 from $136 at Pivotal Research. Not only does this stand at a 40% premium to the stock's current perch, but it sits well above FB's Feb. 2 all-time high of $117.59. Nevertheless, the shares are off 0.9% at $109.68 this afternoon, extending Friday's slide. Longer term, FB remains a technical outperformer, though, up 32% year-over-year. What's more, the stock's recent sell-off has stalled out at FB's rising 50-day moving average -- a trendline that's been supporting the shares since mid-February. Analysts remain firmly in Facebook Inc's favor, too, with all but one of the 28 brokerages following the shares maintaining a "buy" or better, and not a single "sell" opinion to be found.

  • Pivotal Research also chimed in on TWTR, resulting in a price-target hike to $39 from $32. The stock is failing to capitalize on the bullish brokerage note, however, and was last seen off 1% at $16.49. TWTR's technical troubles have been fodder for the Street for some time now, with the shares down 68% year-over-year. In spite of this, options traders have been initiating long calls over puts at a rapid-fire rate. Twitter Inc's 10-day International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) call/put volume ratio of 4.04 ranks higher than 92% of all comparable readings taken in the past year.

  • Commodity stocks are soaring today, thanks to upbeat attention from RBC. SLW, for instance, had its price target upwardly revised to $21 from $20 by the brokerage firm. As such, the shares are up 5% at $17.32. This positive price action only highlights the equity's longer-term prowess, with SLW up more than 39% year-to-date. Nonetheless, options traders have been growing skeptical lately. Specifically, Silver Wheaton Corp.'s 10-day ISE/CBOE/PHLX put/call volume ratio has jumped to 0.99 from 0.49 over the past two weeks, and now ranks in the 96th percentile of its annual range.
