Snap introduces 'App Stories' for third-party apps

Snap Inc. announced new Snap Kit capabilities and partnerships, including App Stories, which "lets Snapchatters create custom Stories for partner apps, directly from Snapchat." Additionally, the company announced new partners across the Snap Kit ecosystem. Launch partners include Tinder, Houseparty, and AdventureAide and App Stories integrations will launch throughout 2019, the company said. In the coming months, Snap will launch the Snap Audience Network, designed to offer third-party developers the opportunity to monetize their apps with the company's full-screen mobile ad format, Snap Ads, the company also announced. Applications for app publishers and developers open today, Snap said.

Snap upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG
BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield upgraded Snap to Buy with a price target of $15, citing the "surge in spending in North America on Snapchat from advertisers", who are increasingly focused on its "compelling" return on investment. The analyst states that the low relative bid prices on advertising inventory for Snap started in Q3 and "really picked up" in Q4, anticipating direct impact on the company's revenue in 2019. Greenfield also cites the "meaningful reduction in clickbait/seedy influencer content" in Snap's Discover section and an increase in the "premium/publisher content - illustrating a change in the underlying algorithm, along with improved morale relative to "all-time lows" in 2018 after hiring of a number of new senior executives.

Jefferies boosts Snap target to $11 after management meeting, keeps Hold rating
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill raised his price target for Snap to $11 from $9 after meeting with management. The analyst came away "generally impressed" with the "cohesion and positive steps" on the company's "road to recovery." While still early in the recovery, Snap has taken positive steps to internally improve, Thill tells investors in a research note. The Android rebuild roll-out is still early, but results are promising for full release by year end, the analyst adds. Further, he believes Snap's engagement "remains healthy" and that increasing partnerships and localization will help to continue to drive deeper reach. Thill's higher target reflects an increased multiple as well as Snap's increased monetization opportunity and expense control. Even with the shares up 80% year-to-date, investor sentiment continues to remain negative and there is opportunity for long term investors, the analyst contends. However, he feels Snap is "not out of the woods yet" and keeps a Hold rating on the name.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Mills (GIS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Rob Dickerson saying although the stock is up 20% year-to-date, pressure still exists in the company's snack bar and soup categories, and divestment dilution risk looms. 2. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield citing the "surge in spending in North America on Snapchat from advertisers," who are increasingly focused on its "compelling" return on investment. 3. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the company should see above-peer-average earnings growth over time thanks to its "asset-light business model, in which it franchises rather than owns hotels." 4. Forum Energy (FET) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying the company has made free cash flow a priority and believes it can generate $100M annually. 5. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
