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

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".
