What are analysts saying about Snap stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Snap stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Snap Inc. provides technology and social media services. The Company's principal product Snapchat, is a camera application that helps people to communicate through short videos and images. Snap Inc. is headquartered in Venice, California. " (8/16/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Bulk of the lock-up has now expired. Snap’s lock-up expiration began on 7/29 and consisted of 400M shares on that date, 782M shares on 8/14, and 20M shares on 8/29 (per S3). Thus, much of the negative impact should now be behind the company." (8/14/2017)
  • 3. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We view shares as a compelling risk / reward opportunity and upgrade SNAP shares to Buy from Hold. Our 12-month, DCF-based Price Target of $22 remains unchanged. We highlight our key points below in the attached presentation." (7/13/2017)
  • 4. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "sometimes grow in fits and starts," Ju argued. The longer-term picture is encouraging and the social media platform and hardware company will benefit from two themes: 1) better access to the younger demographic and 2) improving ROI/measurability.Moreover, at below $17 per share, Snap's stock represents a favorable risk to reward profile with further downside potential of just 13 percent but upside potential of 45 percent, the analyst emphasized. Also important to keep in mind is the fact that approximately 711 million shares could come into the market after a standard lock-up period. As such, investors should expect higher levels of volatility in the near term.Bottom line, although Snap hasn't demonstrated a "more comfortable growth path" it is still a "scarce asset" (7/10/2017)
  • 5. JMP Securities analysts commented, "We were encouraged to hear that newer products, such as Search, World Lenses, and greater Discover content, are driving engagement high," (5/11/2017)
