Business Insider 20/04/2018 Snap is rallying after Credit Suisse raises its price target

Credit Suisse maintained its "Outperform" rating and raised its price target for Snap.
Shares are up more than 3% Friday.

Snap is trading higher by 3.44% Friday and on track to close at its best levels of April after Credit Suisse maintained its "Outperform" rating and increased its price target to $22 from $21.

"Our longer-term investment thesis remains predicated on the following points: (1) we believe SNAP shares at current levels are exhibiting favorable risk/reward, (2) it is a scarce asset that offers advertisers access to a coveted younger demographic; and (3) Snap is a margin expansion story with revenue CAGR exceeding cost of sales CAGR," analyst Stephen Ju said in a note to clients sent out on Friday.

Shares tumbled more than 35% from their February high of $21.22 amid worries surrounding the redesign of the company's Snapchat app and as pressure on the social media space surfaced in the wake Facebook's Cambridge Analytica data scandal.

In what may be an encouraging sign for Snap bulls, shares have held key support near $14 throughout the month of April.


Snap is expected to report its first-quarter results on May 1. Wall Street analysts surveyed by Bloomberg are expecting an adjusted loss of $0.17 a share on revenue of $243.7 million.

Snap shares are up about 5% this year.

Can Snap Stock Bounce Back After Last Week's 24% Drop?

Several analysts downgraded or slashed the price targets of Snapchat's parent company after slowing growth and uninspiring guidance.
Rick Munarriz (TMFBreakerRick)
May 6, 2018 at 11:00AM
Earnings season has been a rough time to own Snap Inc.'s (NYSE:SNAP) in all but one quarter in its brief life as a public company, and last week was more the rule than the exception. Shares of Snapchat's parent company plummeted 23.7% last week, one of the market's biggest losers after posting disappointing financial results.

Revenue rose 54% to hit $230.7 million through the first three months of this year. Most companies would love to be checking in with that kind of growth, but analysts were holding out for a top-line gain of 63%. An unpopular platform redesign finds Snapchat bumping into some user retention and monetization problems, and the outlook for the current quarter calls for another period of sharply decelerating year-over-year revenue growth.

Double exposure
Snap is still growing despite the fallout of Snapchat's redesign that initially intended to make the site more appealing to older users that would be more valuable to advertisers. It closed out the quarter with a record average of 191 million daily active users, 4 million more than it had when the period began. Revenue did clock in with a 19% sequential decline, but this isn't fatal. There's some seasonality in this niche, as even the two market darlings of social media clocked in with sequential top-line slides of 8% and 9% during the same period. The widely criticized Snapchat app update obviously ate into engagement levels and its ability to monetize its traffic, but we can't dismiss the seasonality at play here.

Guidance is more problematic. Snap didn't provide an actual forecast, but it did warn that revenue growth for the current period will "decelerate substantially" from its already disappointing first-quarter levels. Snap is also bracing investors to prepare for a modest uptick in infrastructure costs as it tries to tweak its platform to win back early users without alienating newer members.

The unforgettable takeaway here is that Snap is a very volatile stock when it steps up for its quarterly updates. Its shares have now posted double-digit percentage moves in all five of the weeks in which the company has reported earnings, and more often than not, it's been a painful period to be long Snap stock. Let's size up the stock's action in each of its first five weeks as a public company.


Q1 2017 -- Down 17%
Q2 2017 -- Down 10%
Q3 2017 -- Down 18%
Q4 2017 -- Up 37%
Q1 2018 -- Down 24%
Many analysts got fed up with Snap last week. At least three downgraded the stock, and several more joined them in slashing their price targets. The broken IPO is out of favor, hitting a new all-time low on Thursday. It's going to need to get its platform back on track before its shares follow suit.

Snap Inc Stock Decline Creates Great Buying Opportunity

Investors likely to benefit from either a rebound in SNAP stock or a takeover
By LARRY RAMER, InvestorPlace Contributor http://bit.ly/2wcQF1a
SNAP Stock Decline Creates Great Buying Opportunity
Source: Shutterstock

Wall Street is taking a short-term, overly negative view of Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) and SNAP stock. The large decline in the stock in the wake of Snap’s first quarter results, announced on May 1, was way overdone and has created a great buying opportunity in SNAP stock for investors.

Results Weren’t That Bad for SNAP Stock
SNAP’s results were not that bad. The company’s website, Snapchat, continues to grow and remains a top challenger to Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB). Snapchat’s average daily active user base rose by 4 million quarter-over-quarter and by 25 million year-over-year, reaching 191 million in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, its first quarter revenue slipped to $231 million from $286 million in Q4, but of course it’s important to note that the first quarter tends to be much slower than the fourth quarter from a seasonal perspective.

Considering that Snap’s revenue in the first quarter of 2018 was much higher than in the first quarter of 2017 ($150 million) and in the third quarter of 2017 ($208 million), last quarter’s top-line result wasn’t really so bad. Additionally, Snap noted that the “number of advertisers actively spending on our platform” jumped a very impressive “20 times” YOY.

But Wall Street got very upset because the company said that its “year-over-year revenue growth” would “decelerate significantly” this quarter due to declines in its ad prices. But it appears that the price declines reflect an effort by Snap to attract more advertisers to its platform rather than a meaningful weakening of its user base.

Similarly, some on the Street appear to have turned on SNAP because they believe that Snapchat’s user base declined at the end of last quarter versus the end of the fourth quarter due to impatience over a redesign that the website is undertaking.

Snapchat, however, clarified that its March average daily active user base was lower than its Q1 average but still above the Q4 level. Moreover, Snap pointed out that it was seeing “early signs of stabilization among our iOS users as people get used to the (website) changes.” The company did, however, add that it still needs to improve its design “especially..for Android users.”

Seeing the Forest From the Trees
Despite these headwinds, Snap’s overall outlook remains quite bright. Its user base and ad revenue both continue to grow, the number of marketers advertising on its website has surged tremendously, and it is one of only a few American social websites that have succeeded in a big way.

It’s both interesting and important to note that no less of a company than Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) tried mightily to build its own social website, Google+, and more or less failed.

Snapchat haalt nieuwe financieel directeur bij Amazon
08 mei 201811:04
©REUTERS

Drew Vollero, de eerste CFO van Snapchat, wordt ingeruild voor Tim Stone, die twee decennia bij Amazon meedraaide.

Nadat de chatdienst Snapchat SNAP2,70% afgelopen maart honderd werknemers op straat zette, rolt een kop aan de top van het bedrijf. Drew Vollero, de eerste Chief Financial Officer die Snapchat had, wordt ingeruild voor de 51-jarige Tim Stone. Die was meer dan 20 jaar bij Amazon aan de slag, waar hij tot voor kort een hoge positie in de financiële afdeling bekleedde. Officieel vertrekt Vollero om 'andere opportuniteiten na te jagen' en krijgt hij een jaarloon als afscheidspremie.

De nieuwe CFO Tim Stone kan tot 20 miljoen dollar in aandelen verdienen.
Snapchat beleeft roerige tijden. Het bedrijf slaagt er niet in voldoende te groeien, zowel inzake het aantal gebruikers als de advertentie-inkomsten. Daardoor is het aandeel van Snapchat op de beurs van New York met meer dan 60 procent gedaald sinds de beursgang in maart vorig jaar.

Misschien dat de komst van Stone soelaas kan bieden. Toen hij bij Amazon in dienst trad, schommelde het aandeel van dat bedrijf rond 6 dollar. Nu noteert Amazon tegen meer dan 1.600 dollar. Stone stond aan de leiding van de overname van de supermarktketen Whole Foods, die in juni 2017 voor 13,7 miljard door Amazon werd opgekocht. Zo’n klepper binnenhalen mag wat kosten. Snapchat geeft Stone een basisloon van 500.000 dollar en een mogelijke bonus in aandelen van 20 miljoen dollar.

‘Ik ben Drew en zijn vele bijdragen aan de groei van Snap erg dankbaar’, zei CEO Evan Spiegel in een verklaring. ‘Hij heeft geweldig werk geleverd als de eerste CFO van Snap, een sterk team opgebouwd en ons geholpen bij onze overgang naar een beursgenoteerd bedrijf. De discipline die hij ons heeft bijgebracht, zal ons in de toekomst nog veel van dienst zijn. We wensen Drew graag succes en het allerbeste.’

Snap Inc. (SNAP): From Top to Bottom
By Annette Gomez - May 14, 2018

Snap Inc. (SNAP) is an interesting player in the Technology space, with a focus on Internet Software & Services. The stock has been active on the tape, currently trading at $11.04, up from yesterday’s close by 0.27%. Given the stock’s recent action, it seemed like a good time to take a closer look at the company’s recent data.

Fundamental Analysis
Snap Inc. (SNAP) currently trades with a market capitalization of $13.85 Billion. That value represents a market adjusting for revenues that have been growing by 54.14 % on a quarterly year/year basis as of the company’s last quarterly report.

You can get a sense of how sustainable that is by a levered free cash flow of -$914.5 Million over the past twelve months. Generally speaking, earnings are expected to grow in coming quarters. Analysts are forecasting earnings of -$0.17 on a per share basis this quarter. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 15.81% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.

Technical Analysis
It’s important to check the technicals to get a sense of how SNAP has been acting. Looking at the stock’s movement on the chart, Snap Inc. recorded a 52-week high of $21.94. It is now trading 10.9% off that level. The stock is trading $15.03 its 50-day moving average by 3.99%. The stock carved out a 52-week low down at $10.51.

In recent action, Snap Inc. (SNAP) has made a move of -25.81% over the past month, which has come on Strong relative transaction volume. Over the trailing year, the stock is underperforming the S&P 500 by 13.35, and it’s gotten there by action that has been less volatile on a day-to-day basis than most other stocks on the exchange. In terms of the mechanics underlying that movement, traders will want to note that the stock is trading on a float of 12.42% with $744.93 Million sitting short, betting on future declines. That suggests something of the likelihood of a short squeeze in shares of SNAP.

Set Sail With Snap Inc. (SNAP), Devon Energy Corporation (DVN)
TONY CROSS
3 hours ago

The shares of Snap Inc. have decreased by more than -24.44% this year alone. The shares recently went up by 0.27% or $0.03 and now trades at $11.04. The shares of Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN), has slumped by -1.09% year to date as of 05/11/2018. The shares currently trade at $40.95 and have been able to report a change of 8.13% over the past one week.

The stock of Snap Inc. and Devon Energy Corporation were two of the most active stocks on Friday. Investors seem to be very interested in what happens to the stocks of these two companies but do investors favor one over the other? We will analyze the growth, profitability, risk, valuation, and insider trends of both companies and see which one investors prefer.

Profitability and Returns
Growth alone cannot be used to see if the company will be valuable. Shareholders will be the losers if a company invest in ventures that aren’t profitable enough to support upbeat growth. In order for us to accurately measure profitability and return, we will be using the EBITDA margin and Return on Investment (ROI), which balances the difference in capital structure. The ROI of SNAP is -102.10% while that of DVN is 7.80%. These figures suggest that DVN ventures generate a higher ROI than that of SNAP.

Cash Flow
The value of a stock is ultimately determined by the amount of cash flow that the investors have available. Over the last 12 months, SNAP’s free cash flow per share is a negative -0.03, while that of DVN is also a negative -0.49.

Liquidity and Financial Risk
The ability of a company to meet up with its short-term obligations and be able to clear its longer-term debts is measured using Liquidity and leverage ratios. The current ratio for SNAP is 7.00 and that of DVN is 1.00. This implies that it is easier for SNAP to cover its immediate obligations over the next 12 months than DVN. The debt ratio of SNAP is 0.00 compared to 1.12 for DVN. DVN can be able to settle its long-term debts and thus is a lower financial risk than SNAP.

Valuation
SNAP currently trades at a P/B of 5.02, and a P/S of 15.29 while DVN trades at a forward P/E of 18.42, a P/B of 2.39, and a P/S of 1.48. This means that looking at the earnings, book values and sales basis, DVN is the cheaper one. It is very obvious that earnings are the most important factors to investors, thus analysts are most likely to place their bet on the P/E.

Analyst Price Targets and Opinions
The mistake some people make is that they think a cheap stock has more value to it. In order to know the value of a stock, there is need to compare its current price to its likely trading price in the future. The price of SNAP is currently at a -7.77% to its one-year price target of 11.97. Looking at its rival pricing, DVN is at a -10.57% relative to its price target of 45.79.


When looking at the investment recommendation on say a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being a strong buy, 3 a hold, and 5 a sell), SNAP is given a 3.20 while 2.00 placed for DVN. This means that analysts are more bullish on the outlook for SNAP stocks.

Insider Activity and Investor Sentiment
Short interest or otherwise called the percentage of a stock’s tradable shares currently being shorted is another data that investors use to get a handle on sentiment. The short ratio for SNAP is 3.39 while that of DVN is just 1.20. This means that analysts are more bullish on the forecast for DVN stock.

Conclusion

The stock of Snap Inc. defeats that of Devon Energy Corporation when the two are compared, with SNAP taking 5 out of the total factors that were been considered. SNAP happens to be more profitable, generates a higher ROI, has higher cash flow per share, higher liquidity and has a lower financial risk. When looking at the stock valuation, SNAP is the cheaper one on an earnings, book value and sales basis. Finally, the sentiment signal for SNAP is better on when it is viewed on short interest.

The Worst is Over for Snap Inc.: Prominent Bear By Shoshanna Delventhal | May 21, 2018 — 2:55 PM EDT
SHARE




ADD TO WATCHLIST
SNAP
Snap Inc
10.71 +1.23%
View Watchlist
Shares of Snap Inc. (SNAP), the owner of the popular photo and video messaging app for Millennials, has seen its stock gain about 1.5% Monday afternoon following a note from one team of analysts on the Street who have become less bearish on the social media play. (See also: Snap Shares Free Fall to Continue: Street Bears.)

At $10.74, SNAP reflects a 26.5% decline year-to-date (YTD) and a 46.3% loss over 12 months, sharply underperforming the broader S&P 500's 2.3% gain and 14.8% return over the same respective periods.

On Monday, Snap's biggest bear on the Street upgraded the stock from sell to neutral, citing "several factors that could potentially improve Snap's situation throughout the year." While shares of the Silicon Valley platform are still "crazy expensive," Michael Nathanson of MoffettNathanson views his sell call and bearish sentiment as already reflected in consensus views and estimates. The analyst is less pessimistic on SNAP due to the company's rollback of an unpopular app redesign, the completion of its programmatic advertising platform, a clean up of the Android version of its app and its new organizational structure.

Snap's 'Dirty Laundry Has Been Sufficiently Aired'
Snap's time as a public company has been "nothing short of an unmitigated disaster," wrote Nathanson. SNAP hit the public market at a price of $17 per share in March 2017. While shares surged 44% in their first day trading, the stock is now valued 58% below its IPO price. Earlier this year, Snap lost billions in market value on a tweet from high-profile celebrity Kylie Jenner, in which she snubbed the platform and added to fears that Snap was losing out to rivals such as Facebook Inc.'s (FB) Instagram.

“We believe Snap’s dirty laundry has been sufficiently aired out in the market following Q1 results and guidance," wrote MoffettNathanson. "As the market has become more bearish on Snap, we are no longer sufficiently below Street estimates to justify our Sell call.” (See also: Will Snap's Bold Moves Against Facebook Be Enough?)

Analyst: Worst May Be Over For Snap Inc (SNAP)

SNAP – MoffettNathanson has raised its rating for the troubled social media company.

MAY 21, 2018 | 9:45AM | BY STOCKNEWS.COM STAFF

COMMENTARY
The dark clouds that have been surrounding shares of Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) may be finally ready to move on. That’s the take from one Wall Street firm, which has raised its rating on the social media behemoth.
CNBC passes along the firm’s take on Snap.

MoffettNathanson raised its rating to neutral from sell for Snap shares, saying the social media company’s app design reversal may help its user metrics.

“We worry that as Snap reverses that ill-conceived redesign, user growth will improve which could help the narrative,” analyst Michael Nathanson said in a note to clients Monday. “We are upgrading Snap … primarily based on concerns that our sell call and bearish sentiment are reflected in consensus views and estimates.”
