What are Wall Street analysts saying about Snap stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Snap stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Snap’s user base declined sequentially in the second quarter. Management attributed the decline to the redesign of the application. The decline is a concern as it makes the platform less attractive to advertisers. Moreover, increasing competition from Facebook’s Instagram continues to negatively impact user base growth. Shares of Snap have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, advertising revenues grew in the quarter driven by strong international growth. The shift from auction to programmatic has worked wonders for Snap, although continuing price decline is a concern. Moreover, Snap’s strategy of bringing in new features to attract more users and advertisers is positive. Snapchat has become the most preferred social networking medium among teenagers, which is a major growth driver." (8/16/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We maintain our Market Perform rating and $12 price target, based on our DCF." (8/8/2018)
  • 3. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We maintain a Hold rating/$13 PT ahead of 2Q18 earnings as 1) valuation remains full at 14.9x EV/Revs, the high-end of our IDM group, 2) read through from TWTR/FB earnings implies a potentially challenging macro environment, 3) feedback from marketers is consistent, that Snap remains well behind Instagram in budget allocations, 4) negative feedback from the redesign and subsequent reversal could have caused user churn/drop in engagement, and 5) lack of financial guidance creates more variability to consensus estimates. That said, Snap remains a viable differentiated and innovative platform. Causes Concern. 2Q18 results from the last two weeks show that while marketer’s demands for digital ad inventory was strong, there are ongoing concerns about the regulatory environment on several issues." (8/6/2018)
  • 4. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We see the advertiser expansion as an important source of revenue diversification and reflects Snap’s capacity to grow revenue through a broadening of its addressable market. On the other hand, we can infer this result at least partially reflects some degree of deceleration in spending from large brands, which generally view Snap as a niche platform rather than something core to their typical campaigns. However, comments indicating that “of the Top 100 Ad Age Advertisers that started advertising with (Snap) in Q1 of 2016 or earlier, each one of them, at a parent level, also spent with (Snap) in 2017 and over 90 percent of them spent in every quarter of 2017.” Although it does not convey the growth rate of like-for-like advertisers, we think it does reflect a degree of durability for the platform among brands who use it." (2/8/2018)
  • 5. Aegis analysts commented, "We suspect that Snap was a beneficiary of ad dollars that could not make its way onto Facebook/Instagram due either to pricing or tight inventory. That may not recur in non-seasonal quarters. The silver lining for the future is that in tests of the app redesign, Snap saw increased ARPU, time spent, and engagement. Remains to be seen whether that applies all over. We remain at Hold but increased our price target to $18 from $13 on higher estimates. Salient Points: (1) gross margin increased 1,400bps QoQ to 36% and cash burn decreased 49% QoQ; (2) the retention rate of new Android users increased by ~20%; (3) over 90% of Snap Ads were bought programmatically, up from 10% in 4Q16, and 80% in 3Q17; (4) Snap Ad pricing decreased 15% QoQ and 70% YoY; (5) Snap Ad impressions grew 90% QoQ and 575% YoY; (6) each week, half of the U.S." (2/8/2018)
