Snap Inc.'s Share Price Soars After Revenue Beats Expectations

08 Février 2018

The positive earnings report is a bright spot amid a year of tough moments for Snap, which has spent much of its time on the public markets trading below its IPO price.

But can one quarter really change the whole narrative surrounding this troubled company?

Here's how I get there.

Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Graham also noted progress in the Snap ad auction platform, but he said that auction density is the key question for this year.

Just look at Facebook. The increase beat investor expectations and invigorated the company, with stocks going up by as much as 25 percent. But all those struggles went away after a blowout July 2013 quarter that underscored the ramp in the company's all-important mobile business. Snap Inc has a twelve month low of $11.28 and a twelve month high of $29.44. For its fiscal fourth quarter, New Relic said revenue will be between $95 million and $96.5 million with non-GAAP earnings of 4 cents a share to 5 cents a share. Finally, Westwood Holdings Group Inc. acquired a new stake in shares of Snap during the 2nd quarter valued at $148,000.

Helping things along is the uptick in Snap's daily active users, which jumped to 8.9 million new users in the fourth quarter, the most recorded since 2016's third quarter. But the company's bet on Spectacles has been expensive, costing the company $40 million last quarter for "excess inventory".

Before publishing its fourth-quarter results, Snap's shares were languishing at about $13.99 due to concerns of stagnant user growth and depressed ad prices. "For example, in the Middle East, we made the strategic decision to rely exclusively on our self-serve tools for Snap Ads. and out of all our worldwide offices, this region was our top contributor to overall revenue growth in Q4". He has also developed tools to monitor brands' early adoption of live-streaming apps, compare Yahoo's and Google's search designs and examine the NFL's YouTube and Facebook video strategies.

Several analysts have commented on the company.

As for the outlook, Extreme Networks said that third quarter revenue will be between $262 million and $272 million with non-GAAP earnings between 17 cents a share and 24 cents a share. The amount of money it made from small and medium-sized advertisers more than doubled from Q3 2017 to Q4 2017. They need max engagement, and highly targeted advertising.

Mr. Greenfield said Snap was a communications company that was trying to develop an advertising business. The stock was sold at an average price of $12.54, for a total value of $3,590,603.28.

Snap also paid more attention to the previously neglected Android app, boosting retention by almost 20pc compared to the same period a year ago.

Confidence the two would be able to coexist across the social media industry was shaken after the user growth of Snapchat stalled during 2017. That ARPU ($26 annually) on 300 million users implies a total revenue base of $7.8 billion. Nelson Roberts Investment Advisors LLC boosted its stake in shares of Snap by 10,033.0% during the 3rd quarter. RBC Capital Markets analysts were most bullish with a price target of $21. Even with today's rosier report, Snap's stock is down approximately 42.5 percent since it started trading publicly in March.
