Hold
Snap price target lowered to $8 from $13 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali lowered his price target on Snap to $8 and kept his Hold rating ahead of its Q3 results which he expects to be mixed. The analyst cites the "lack of material momentum with advertisers and a user base, whose growth remains challenged". He adds that the anticipated ramp in Snap's monetization may also take longer as its Daily Active User rate of growth is seen remaining "muted". Squali further believes that the company's valuation at 5.4-times enterprise value to expected FY19 revenues is "full" as he also contends that CEO Spiegel's view of profitability in FY19 is too "optimistic".

Snap price target lowered to $9 from $15 at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Egbert tempered his near-term revenue expectations for Snap, citing his belief that many advertisers need to grow more comfortable with the platform. He lowered his 2019 revenue forecasts by 4% and his 2020 view by 3% to account for softer expected DAU growth and gradual advertiser adoption of its ad tools, which he views as "steadily improving." Ahead of the company's Q3 earnings report on Thursday, Egbert lowered his price target on Snap to $9 from $15 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.
