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. " (10/18/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Monetization per minute has significant upside potential… We’re modeling for Snap’s 2017 US ad revenue per DAU (ARPU) to rise 53.4% y/y to $9.56 (vs. FB’s (OW) $103.31), and for its 2017 US ad rev per min (x 1,000) to also rise by 53.4% y/y to $0.87 (vs. FB’s $5.66). On both counts, we believe Snap’s monetization has room to go substantially higher as bid density improves on the self-serve platform and as mobile video/ads in the Discover tab ramp up." (9/15/2017)
  • 3. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We continue to believe Snap has strong upside potential over the next 12 months as reflected in our $30.00 price target." (9/14/2017)
  • 4. 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)
  • 5. 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)
