Snap downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Cowen

Cowen analyst John Blackledge downgraded Snap to Underperform and cut its price target o $11 after reducing 2018-2022 estimates. Blackledge's Ad Buyer Survey results for Snap were mixed with modest share gains of Social/Video budgets in 2018/19 despite ranking ROI, data, and targeting ranking the lowest. Survey Ad buyers preferred Instagram Stories ads versus Snap Ads, despite the firjm's consumer survey suggesting rising SNAP user engagement in 2017 and higher user sharing and video/photo viewing.

Underperform
Snap initiated with an Underperform at Evercore ISI
As reported earlier, Evercore ISI analyst Anthony DiClemente initiated Snap with an Underperform rating and a price target of $7. DiClemente contends that consensus revenue estimates "appear increasingly unrealistic" amid growing direct competition from Instagram. The analyst is also concerned that profitability may prove to be challenging because of the company's reliance on 3rd party hosting and premium content.

Overweight
Snap upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler upgraded Snap (SNAP) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $18 from $11. The stock closed yesterday down 30c to $13.57. With the company's pricing transition in the later stages, Snap may start hitting or exceeding consensus revenue estimates and accelerating growth in 2018, Sandler tells investors in a research note. He thinks the investor narrative in 2018 can change from Facebook (FB) "is killing" Snap to "these companies can co-exist" like Priceline (PCLN) and Expedia (EXPE). Further, Sandler highlights Snap's high short interest relative to peers, especially considering its founders own around 50% of the shares. The analyst feels now is a good time to start accumulating Snap.
