Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP)

Shares of Snap Inc took a dive Thursday due to Meta Platform missing earnings expectations.

Investment bank KeyBank analyst Justin Patterson, announced Thursday morning that it is cutting its price target on Snap stock by more than half, and it pointed to Meta Platforms' earnings report as part of the reason. Despite maintaining an overweight rating on the stock, it sees "ongoing ad measurement headwinds" driving shifts out of social media, and warns that Snap will also suffer "margin pressure from investment."

Shares of Snap fell more than 19.4%.

About Snap.....

Snap Inc engages in the operation of its camera platform.

Its products include Snapchat, using the camera and editing tools to take and share Snaps, Friends Page, which lets users create and use Stories, Groups, Video and Chat, Discover for searching and surfacing relevant Stories, Snap Map, which shows friends, Stories and Snaps near the user, Memories, for saving personal collections, and Spectacles, wearable sunglasses capable of taking Snaps and interacting directly with the Snapchat application. The firm's primary source of revenue is advertising.

The company was founded by Frank Reginald Brown IV, Evan Thomas Spiegel, and Robert C. Murphy in 2010 and is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA.

The Influencing Factors For A Successful SNAP Inc Trade…..

Besides Meta’s drastic report, social media stocks, which derive almost all their revenue from advertising, have been under pressure ever since Apple (AAPL) made changes in late April to its smartphone operating system.

KeyBanc Capital Markets is also cautious on social-media stocks following Meta’s report, cutting its price targets on Snap Inc. The firm sees “ongoing ad measurement headwinds driving shifts out of social.”

KeyBank says that it worries investors won't pay as high a multiple for Snap's sales. Patterson said he sees headwinds, including ad measurement driving shifts away from social, vertical headwinds, and margin pressure from investment.

The analyst also cautions that the extent of margin risk could be a new sentiment overhang but believes valuation multiples have swung significantly, which will leave room for the company's earnings results to be "less bad."

Other concerns are…..

  • The yield on the 10-year Treasury note was up to 1.83%,
  • The dollar sank against the euro following hawkish comments from the European Central Bank (ECB),
  • Oil futures are moved higher, near $89 a barrel,
  • The price of natural gas was down 11% after its 14% gain Wednesday, and
  • Bitcoin and most other major cryptocurrencies fell.

Summary.....

After market close Thursday Snap Inc presented its earnings, which, for the first time in its 11-year corporate history, the company behind Snapchat had a quarterly profit.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, Snap Inc turned a profit using GAAP measures. Snap earned $23 million in the quarter, compared with a loss of $113 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Snap’s quarterly revenue, meanwhile, grew 42% year over year to $1.3 billion.

Unlike Facebook, daily users on Snap Inc increased, by 24% from the year-ago quarter to 319 million.

Also, Snap came out with quarterly earnings of $0.22 per share, beating the Consensus Estimate of $0.09 per share.

“Snapchat is clearly not as prone to the ‘TikTok effect’ as Meta,” said Insider Intelligence principal analyst Jasmine Enberg, who noted much of the app’s growth came from India, where TikTok is currently banned.

The news came amid a tumultuous week for social media stocks. Snap stock price was up more than 20% in after-hours trading.

Therefore…..

Exiting the trade before the earnings, when in decent profit, certainly paid off!
