What are Wall Street analysts saying about Snap stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Snap stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $19 Target Price on SNAP shares. Audience tracker suggests a relatively steady user base in the U.S. and abroad: Based on recently released Snap Ad reach estimates for August, it appears U.S. / global DAUs are still tracking ahead of our sequential DAU forecasts for 3Q:19 (on pace for +4.0mm to +5.0mm globally vs. our +3mm 3Q forecast and Snap’s guidance for +2.0mm to +4.0mm for the full quarter), absent any meaningful changes in daily engagement / usage patterns outside of the top 10 advertising markets, although aggregate reach across the markets we track was down slightly m/m. As we discussed in the July report, we believe September is the seasonally strongest month for sequential DAU growth during 3Q as students are back in school, whereas usage is generally weaker during July and August due to summer vacations." (9/4/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We are maintaining our Buy rating and increasing our target price from $17.25 to $20.75 as we roll forward our 12-month TP based on 9.5x EV/Sales on our above street 2021 estimates. This quarter was a strong –way stronger than we anticipated– confirmation to our view that SNAP is hitting an inflection point. They delivered a blow-out DAU adds, revenue and EBITDA beats, and had both strong EBITDA and revenue guidance." (7/24/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Snap’s first-quarter 2019 results benefited from growth in user base and engagement levels owing to its focus on offering innovative features. Engagement levels also increased due to the new Android app made available to users, which has improved performance and takes up less space. Additionally, given Snap’s recently unveiled games and new AR features, we expect engagement levels to increase further. This is likely to attract advertisers. Additionally, Snap’s ability to reach more users in the 13 to 34 age group in the United States can also be the key reason to woo advertisers. However, management expects some disturbance in its near-term business owing to reorganization of the sales team. Moreover, increasing investments in areas such as content, sales marketing and engineering may hurt profitability. Further, Snap’s shares have significantly underperformed the industry over the past year." (4/26/2019)
  • 4. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We adjust our estimates and PT to $11 (from $8) on better 1Q19 financial results and user metrics. While management remains non committal to its timing for profitability, its strong 100%+ flow through of incremental revenue to adj. EBITDA for the second quarter in a row leads us to believe that adj. EBITDA profitability could be reached as early as 4Q19. 1Q19 Results Better Than Expected. Snap beat Street expectations for both the top and bottom lines, while showing positive user trends and 2Q19 guidance (at the midpoint, guidance is higher than current consensus). 1Q19 revenue and adj. EBITDA were $320.4M/($123.4M) vs. Street consensus of $305.7M/ ($144.0M), and a prior guidance range of $285-310M/($165M)-($140M). The bottom line beat was particularly notable given that it was the second quarter with over 100% flow through from revenue to adj." (4/24/2019)
