Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP)

The social media giant Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) has traded badly in recent days, with a 43% drop yesterday after issuing a profit warning.

Year-to-date, the stock is down over 70%, falling below its IPO price. This is predominantly driven by a regulatory filing that warned the macroeconomic environment is worsening, thereby increasing the likelihood that revenues and adjusted earnings will come below its guided range.

The current share price is $13.50. The 52-week range is $12.55 - $83.34. FactSet analysts' target share price is $34.69. Showing more than 100% upside.
