What are analysts saying about Snap stock?

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

  • 1. 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)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We continue to think Snap has the potential to develop into a durable digital media franchise with considerable upside from its current market cap, but investor skepticism and near-term supply / demand dynamics related to the company’s impending lock-up expiration could hold Snap’s stock price in check for the time being." (5/11/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We updated our survey on 1,000 FB & Snapchat users from ’16 and found both Instagram and Snapchat are both seeing continued user growth, with Snapchat usage growing fastest among the older demographic. Additionally, we highlight Snap’s recent improvements to targeting and the increase gamified ad formats will help drive ARPU growth over time." (4/17/2017)
  • 4. Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "User cohorts will continue to meaningfully expand."Snap’s advertising platform utility will grow to rival leading competitors."Snap will succeed in achieving significant leverage on a model with demanding bandwidth and computing requirements." (3/31/2017)
  • 5. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "White comments, "Over the past few weeks, Snapchat has been the #3 free application in Apple's App Store but stood at #2 this morning. Holding the #1 position is Power Rangers: Legacy Wars. As Snap's flagship product, Snapchat is a mobile camera application that has risen in the ranks to become one of the most popular mobile applications with millennials and exited 2016 with over 158 million average daily active users. As such, Snap taps into the most desirable, largest and most difficult to reach generation for advertisers - millennials... In our view, comparing Snap to Facebook or Twitter does not make sense. Although other social messaging platforms enjoy a much higher user base, we believe Snapchat has a cachet with the millennial crowd that drives engagement that will be difficult for other platforms to garner. For example, Apple is not the biggest in the smartphone market (on an annual basis) or the PC business in terms of unit market share; however, the company's focused strategy and culture of creating great products has turned Apple into the most valuable company in the world." (3/27/2017)
