Snap Stock Snaps Back – for the Moment


Snap shares appear to have rebounded from the plunge they took earlier this month, after the newly public company released a massive $2.2 billion loss in the first quarter, but investors still are scratching their heads over the company’s prospects. Trading just over $20 at mid-day Tuesday, Snap looks to some like it has regained its early bloom. Others suspect that darker days are yet to come, as signs of robust growth have been lacking. Snap’s revenue and subscriber growth figures missed consensus estimates in Q1, sending shares tumbling.

Snap Sells Itself as Camera Company as IPO Nears


As it approaches its first stock offering next month, Snap, maker of the popular mobile messaging app Snapchat, is positioning itself as a camera company. “We feel like we’re really at the beginning of what cameras can do,” said Snap CEO Evan Spiegel. “Before, cameras were the best way to perfectly save or record something that you saw.

Snap Seizes the Moment


Snap Inc. last week filed for a $3 billion initial public offering. The company’s private market valuation is $17.8 billion, but investors reportedly have valued it at between $20 billion and $25 billion. “Twenty-five billion dollars is just nuts, but that’s the market we’re in,” remarked Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group. “This could provide an opportunity for the big gambler investors, but better to watch for the high and then short the stock,” he suggested, because Snap’s prospectus “suggests profit will never arrive.”
