"The technical chart for Snap is very bullish and shows a technical pattern known as a reverse head and shoulders. The pattern indicates that the stock continues to rise. Another pattern that also appears to have formed is known as a falling wedge, a bullish reversal pattern. It too would suggest the stock increases to around $18.50. Should shares rise above resistance at $18.50, the next level to watch for would come around $20.80. The relative strength index has also been steadily trending higher in recent weeks. It indicates that bullish momentum is entering Snap's stock.

SNAP stock is up roughly 165% on the year. Now those gloomy Guses are pointing at Instagram?s development of a companion messenger app called Don?t believe them for a second.
The price chart continues to reaffirm the narrative SNAP stock investors are on the right side trade and in position to capture more profits from a steady uptrend that has been established. After five weeks of consolidating, SNAP stock could be ready to form its latest higher low within the up-channel...."
Ich bin vom dynamischen Umsatzwachstum doch positiv überrascht. Wenn Snapchat so weiter macht dürften sie die Gewinnschwelle innerhalb von 2 Jahren überschreiten. Sobald Snap Gewinne macht und diese vielleicht sogar immer größer werden steht eine Neubewertung der Aktie an, die dann auch fundamental zu bewerten ist.
In diesem Wert investiert zu sein könnte sich bald sehr rentieren.
Snap is not only expected to grow its user base, but increase engagement from newer products and services, he said.This will lead to better monetization as advertisers are more attracted to the platform, Josey said.
Snap should be able to grow revenue by 37% year-over-year in 2020 to $2.4 billion and report EBITDA of $89 million, for a 3.8% margin, the analyst said.
In 2021, JMP expects revenue to rise another 30.5% to $3.1 billion.
The research firm's new $20 price target is based on 10 times 2021 EV/revenue, with an enterprise value of $32 billion.
The even higher multiple is justified based on Snap's momentum and the fact it can better reach the coveted 13-24-year-old demographic, according to JMP.
"There aren't many public "pure plays" on the AR market, but plenty of companies offer varying degrees of exposure to AR technologies and devices. Let's take a look at three AR stocks you should consider buying right now: Himax Technologies (NASDAQ:HIMX), Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), and Snap (NYSE:SNAP)....... Snap's stock isn't cheap at nine times next year's sales, but it still trades below its IPO price as its revenue growth accelerates, its ecosystem expands, and its losses narrow. That's why I personally own shares of Snap and believe the stock could head higher next year. https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/12/26/...ks-to-buy-right-now.aspx
You can thank Wall Street analysts: First, this morning, Jefferies & Co. upgraded Snap from a hold to a buy and gave it a $21 price target. (Snap is currently trading at around $17.70.) Then Cowen & Co. echoed the sentiment, upgrading the stock from market perform to outperform with a $20 price target.
Pinterest (NYSE: PINS) has been rising since its IPO, and it has huge potential if it can crack into some more demographics. Snap (NYSE: SNAP) seems to be recovering from its rough start on the public markets a few years ago. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) seems unconcerned with TikTok's explosive growth, and that could be to its detriment. Unlike Instagram or WhatsApp, TikTok is one competitor that can't just be acquired, and so far, Facebook's attempts to copy the short video platform have failed to take off.
"....Is Snapchat safe? Spiegel suggests that Snapchat's core use case of more private sharing with friends is harder to draw engagement from than status-based sharing from influencers like on Instagram. "Everyone's interested in what their friends are doing," he said. Likewise, Snapchat's position at the base of the pyramid -- where users are just sharing how they feel and communicating with friends -- means the content on Snapchat is easier to create. It'll be a go-to tool just for creating fun little photos and videos to share with friends, whereas TikTok is for creating content with the intent to entertain the broader public -- something only accessible to a small group of people. The challenge for Snap is that it's very hard to monetize private sharing and messaging. Just ask Facebook...." Snap's Discover platform has emerged as a key revenue driver. It's investing heavily in Snap Originals to engage its user base and expand ad inventory.
und nehmen die Aktie charttechnisch unter die Lupe. kurz vor dem Report https://www.aktiencheck.de/exklusiv/...g_Signal_Chartanalyse-10839095 Vor allem dank des Bruchs des seit der Emission im März 2017 bestehenden Baissetrends (akt. bei 10,73 USD) habe bei der Snap-Aktie im letzten Jahr ein Gezeitenwandel stattgefunden. Nach besagtem Trendbruch sei es jüngst zu einem erneuten Einstiegssignal gekommen. Als solches würden die Analysten die "bullishe" Auflösung der Schiebezone der letzten Monate interpretieren. Damit scheine der Kursanstieg des Jahres 2019 verdaut zu sein und der Titel könnte nun wieder Fahrt nach Norden aufnehmen. In die gleiche Kerbe würden das neue MACD-Kaufsignal sowie die hohe Relative Stärke schlagen, welche das Risiko eines Fehlausbruchs auf der Oberseite reduziere. Aus der Höhe der o. g. Tradingrange ergebe sich nun ein kalkulatorisches Anschlusspotenzial von knapp 5,50 USD. Auf dem Weg zum Ausschöpfen des Kursziels von rund 23,50 USD definiere das Hoch vom Februar 2018 bei 21,22 USD ein wichtiges Etappenziel, zumal in diesem Bereich noch eine offene Kurslücke vom Juni 2016 bestehe (obere Gapkante bei 21,00 USD). Als engmaschiger Stop-Loss auf der Unterseite seien die Ausbruchsmarken bei rund 18 USD prädestiniert, so die Analysten von HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt in einer aktuellen Chartanalyse.

This widely-known consensus outlook gives a good sense of the company's earnings picture, but how the actual results compare to these estimates is a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price.
The stock might move higher if these key numbers top expectations in the upcoming earnings report, which is expected to be released on February 4. On the other hand, if they miss, the stock may move lower. This company behind Snapchat is expected to post break-even quarterly earnings per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +100%. Revenues are expected to be $560.39 million, up 43.8% from the year-ago quarter......

: Motley Fool will Outlook Continue to Help Its Stoc
Will Snap?s Improving Outlook Continue to Help Its Stock? Shares of Snap (NYSE:SNAP) benefited from a massive comeback in 2019 after once flirting with penny-stock status. Investors came back to Snap, and it now trades in the $19 range as of the time of this writing. This occurred as ad sales drove revenue higher, and the company made competitive gains against archrival Instagram.
But the growth has made Snap stock relatively expensive. Moreover, Snapchat has not enjoyed the broad appeal of its peers; although it can probably maintain a significant audience, its benefits may not continue to accrue to Snap investors. Snap stock has more than tripled since being arguably left for dead one year ago. At that low point, it had fallen below $6 per share as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) continued to co-opt its apps, and Instagram made a direct play for its teen and young adult base.... In Snap's most recently reported quarter, revenue increased by 50% while average revenue per user rose by 33% on a year-over-year basis. Analysts now believe the company can begin turning a profit in fiscal 2022. But Snap needs more Unfortunately, these successes offer only so much help to Snap stock. Despite improvements, Snapchat has failed to develop a serious following outside of its core teen and young adult audience. As a result, Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) has now surpassed Snapchat as the third most popular social network. ..."
In 2019, Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), the company behind the popular app Snapchat, had its best year yet in its three-year history a publicly traded company. The social media player's shares soared by 196.4%, and the gains don't seem to be slowing down either -- shares were already up by about 11% this year on Monday. For context, the S&P 500 is barely above flat so far in 2020.
Obviously, it is still far too early to tell whether Snap shares will reprise last year's performance, but the company's fourth-quarter and full-year financial results -- which are set to be released on Feb. 4 -- will provide the first clear indications. When that report comes out, investors will want to pay close attention to three key metrics: user growth, monetization, and user engagement. ...and by the third quarter of 2019, the company had 210 million DAUs, 13% higher than during Q4 2018. ...During the second quarter, the total time spent on Discover by Snapchat's users increased by 60% year over year, and Snapchat's Discover audience grew by 35%. ....
(RTTNews) - Snap Inc. (SNAP) reported fourth-quarter non-GAAP net income per share of $0.03 compared to a loss of $0.04, prior year. On average, 30 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report profit per share of $0.01, for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items. Adjusted EBITDA improved 184% to $42 million. Net loss widened 26% year-on-year to $49 million.
Fourth-quarter revenue was $560.89 million, an increase of 44% from prior year. Analysts expected revenue of $563.03 million for the quarter. DAUs were 218 million, an increase of 31 million or 17% year-over-year.
For the first-quarter, Snap Inc. projects revenue to be between $450 million and $470 million, compared to $320 million, prior year. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be negative in a range of $90 million and $70 million.
Ich bin mit der Entwicklung von Snapchat in 2019 insgesamt zufrieden. Die Umsätze konnten gegenüber 2018 massiv gesteigert werden. Die Verluste wurden auch reduziert, auch wenn das Q4 2019 hier nicht so optimal war. Das letzte Quartal ist für mich nur statistisches Rauschen. Die letzten Jahre hat Snapchat seine Verluste in der Tendenz (Vorjahresvergleich Quartal zu Quartal) immer weiter verringert.
Was mich interessiert ist, wann sie den Break-Even-Point erreichen und zum ersten mal eine schwarze Null schreiben oder sogar Gewinne machen. Die dynamische Kursentwicklung in 2019 mit einer Kurssteigerung von 100 % zeigt nebenbei, dass die Mehrzahl der Marktteilnehmer ebenfalls erwartet, dass SNAP langfristig Gewinne machen wird. Wenn man die bisherige Entwicklung fortschreibt dürfte irgendwann zwischen 2023 und 2028 das erste Gewinnquartal da sein.
