Wall Street analysts were mostly caught off guard by Snap’s better than expected earnings report after the bell on Tuesday. The technology and social media company posted a solid quarter showing a more stable user base.
Shares were up 24 percent at the open to $8.77, but most analysts remained negative on the stock.
In a note to clients, Bank of America’s Justin Post titled his report, “Stable (users) is far from a victory, but an important step forward.” He also said, “However, our survey work suggests Snap still has high levels of churn, while we continue to think Instagram and Whataspp will be difficult to displace in international markets even with an improved app.”
Noting the pop in the stock, Susquehanna’s Shyam Patil said, “We reiterate our negative (rating) and would take advantage of the pop in the shares, as we think fundamentals remain extremely challenged and continue to see a downward bias to forward estimates.”

Last year, net income dropped from $146.4 million to $101.2 million, creating the sharp trend line seen above. The 2017 earnings dip can be traced to numerous factors, including higher interest expense, a reduction in tanker income, fewer ships in the fleet on charter to former parent Frontline Shipping (NYSE:FRO), and the bankruptcy filing of Seadrill Ltd. (NYSE:SDRL). Seadrill’s reorganization has impacted Ship Finance’s offshore revenue, as it has three out of four offshore drilling rigs on charter to affiliates of Seadrill.

Sales looked good, but profit margins remained challenged — due in large part to a difficult business landscape for the dining-out segment of the economy.
