Snap revenue estimates reduced at BTIG

BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield kept his Neutral rating on Snap but lowered his FY18 revenue projections again to $1.13B and FY19 to $1.61B, noting that these are now much less than his original April 2017 forecasts of $2.5B and $4.9B respectively. The analyst notes that his initial Neutral rating on Snap was a "mistake", as revenue ramp did not proceed as he expected, but adds that given the "horrible" sentiment on the stock, any evidence of "success" could lead to an upside "overreaction". Greenfield further notes that he is "intrigued by the stickiness of the app as a communications platform" amid the "massive" shift of consumer time spent on mobile, even though his "patience is wearing thin".

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. VERTICAL GROUP RAISES SNAP RATING: Vertical Group analyst Phil Leggiere upgraded Snap (SNAP) to Mixed from Negative citing expectations for strong second half 2018 spending. Snap is higher by over 1% in late morning trading. PIVOTAL CUTS SPOTIFY TO HOLD: Pivotal Research analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak downgraded Spotify (SPOT) to Hold from Buy with an unchanged price target of $200. The analyst cited valuation for the downgrade, given the "material rise" in the shares since his initiation report on May 29. Further, he increasingly views consensus 2018 premium monthly active user growth expectations as too aggressive. He lowered his Q2 premium subscriber MAU estimate from 6M to 5.5M, versus the consensus at 7M. Spotify's current valuation is fair and does not leave a lot of room for "operational/market hiccups," Wlodarczak told investors. DEUTSCHE SEES AMERITRADE/E-TRADE MERGER MAKING SENSE: Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell continues to see a merger between TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and E-Trade (ETFC) as making strategic and financial sense. With TD Ameritrade's integration of recently acquired Scottrade progressing better than expectations, a merger scenario with E-Trade is "becoming more compelling," Bedell told investors. He updated his merger scenario model, raising his hypothetical merger scenario value of E-Trade from TD Ameritrade's perspective to $77 from $72, nearly a 30% premium to the current share price. Bedell raised his price target for TD Ameritrade to $77 from $72 and for E-Trade to $72 from $70. He kept Buy ratings on both stocks. GORDON HASKETT UPGRADES TARGET, DOWNGRADES WALMART: Gordon Haskett analyst Chuck Grom upgraded Target (TGT) to Accumulate from Hold and raised his price target on shares to $86 from 74 to reflect the recent acceleration in traffic. Grom said geolocation data and proprietary card data support his Q2 4.5% comp growth estimate. Grom also downgraded Walmart (WMT) to Hold from Accumulate and lowered its price target to $92 from $98. Grom thinks there are few near-term catalysts on the horizon and said the margin outlook is not as transparent following a period of improvement and stabilization. He expects Walmart shares to be range bound for the balance of the year.

Snap performance 'woes' continue, says OTR Global
OTR Global's Q2 U.S. checks indicate performance "woes" continue as year-over-year advertising spending benefited only slightly from improved targeting and open self-serve API, struggling against competitors with strong performance.

Snap will turn the corner 'eventually,' remain on sidelines now, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter maintained a Neutral rating and $10 price target on Snap ahead of the company's Q2 results on August 7. In a research note to investors, Pachter says that despite improvements in programmic, he feels that Snapchat is one of the most difficult-to-use social platforms for advertisers and its economic losses are likely to exceed $1B in 2018, with no clear path to profitability. Though he acknowledges that the company's 191 million DAUs have value and could drive profits if management chooses to focus on profitability, Snap continues to focus on improving the utility of its app, increasing user engagement, and explaining its value proposition to advertisers. Pachter is confident that Snap will turn the corner eventually, but he advises investors to remain on the sidelines until there is evidence of a turnaround.

Deutsche expects 'weak' user trends from Snap in Q2
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley expects "weak" daily active user trends in Q2 but improving monetization from Snap, particularly in the second half of the year as the company ramps deployment of its advertising pixel. To reflect the rollback of the redesign still not being completed for Android users in Q2, the analyst lowered his quarter-over-quarter net new average DAU number to down 2.5M from up 1M to 188.5M, below the Street at 192M. The analyst thinks brand ad buyers may be hesitating given the redesign and cut his Q2 revenue estimate for Snap to $243M from $249M. The Street is at $249M. Walmsley, however, slightly increased his Q3 and Q4 ad revenue estimates reflecting improving feedback around the company's ad tech improvements. The analyst bumped up his price target to $13 from $12 but keeps a Hold rating on Snap
