    Good analysis – for mine the huge warning signs was the voting rights and didn’t look past that when the IPO was offered.

    A third under IPO but more than 60% from ATH $29.44 on March 3

    SNAP out in damage control via a webcast

    In 2Q17, $SNAP announced that over 25% of smartphone users in US, UK & France are using Snapchat every day. Overall, the company’s daily active users created over 20 snaps per day. For first time since launch, $SNAP saw more snap views (aggregate and per user basis) from user generated and premium content.

    $SNAP has been prioritizing product development for iOS platform till date as most of its users are using $AAPL phones. In order to bolster users who are using Android (mostly Rest of World), it has started working on the improvements to bring it on parity with iOS.

    More … 40% of ads for $SNAP are coming from core markets US and Canada, which holds more than half of the global ad spend. In 2Q, 75% of the top 100 national advertisers spent on the platform.

    $SNAP expanded its global ad reach capabilities by adding 10 more countries including Hong Kong, India and Israel, taking the total to 39 countries.

    Personally I try to avoid IPOs
    Venture Capitalist and Angel Investors are getting in much sooner than when a company would do the “hard work” to get the company off the ground. Now it seems like business community rewards an idea with the risk of money.

    Back in my day, people had to prove the company was viable before it went to the equities market, now its being used as a vehicle to cash out.

    [size=5]while this is a popular site, it must also generate revenue to pay for those popular services & social network capabilities … as lots of computer power & disk space are required .. Hopefully, there will be a proper price point where company can hold …

    otherwise we might hear a SNAP, CRACKLE and POP ;)[/size]

    Definitely they have taken the meat out of it the old argument was they have taken the risk but often they are coming in just to make it saleble tot he herd and this $SNAP story is common – Blue Apron another

    We are seeing here how opposite extremes in their beliefs as to how culture is built and retained in a social media biz, it was like mixing fire with oxygen and expecting snowflakes with the arrogance of the CEO and co..

    With the Social Media Moves From DoJ revisting “SNAP IPO Failure a Great Lesson in Risk and Changing Trends” noting $SNAP has lagged $FB and $TWTR is this the deadhorse still?

    While up on the day is lagging others
