The company has become the most preferred social networking medium among teenagers, which is a significant positive. Moreover, the company’s transition to automated or programmatic auction of Snap Ads is driving its advertising revenues. Notably, the company’s guidance of an increase in Daily Active User (DAU) in 2019 is a tailwind. Extended partnerships with the likes of Comcast and Viacom related to new content production are expected to boost audience base and drive top-line for the company. However, lack of revenue diversification is a headwind. Lackluster user growth and decline in DAU in the reported quarter, remains the primary concern for investors.
