“We are maintaining our Buy rating and increasing our target price from $17.25 to $20.75 as we roll forward our 12-month TP based on 9.5x EV/Sales on our above street 2021 estimates. This quarter was a strong –way stronger than we anticipated– confirmation to our view that SNAP is hitting an inflection point. They delivered a blow-out DAU adds, revenue and EBITDA beats, and had both strong EBITDA and revenue guidance.”
