Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP)

By exiting SNAP before earnings, the options call trade recommended before the market opened on Monday, 21st October, 2019, “Earnings Predictions” members were able to profit to the tune of 60%. As they say – “a bird in-the-hand is worth more than two in-the-bush” – or put another way – GREED can be the downfall of a great profit!

Snap Inc presented earnings on Tuesday, after the bell.  The shares rose in premarket trade after Snap disclosed in a regulatory filing that the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission ended their investigation.

However, Snap Inc provided fourth-quarter revenue guidance of $540 million–$560 million, which was enough to send the stock south. The average of those two numbers is $550 million, which is below analysts’ average projection of $555.4 million.

Shares of Snap, the parent company of photo messaging app Snapchat, were down 6% at $13.18. They rose as much as about 3% in morning trade.

So, exiting early was definitely financially beneficial.

The Earnings Report for Snap Inc

The analyst community predicted a loss of $0.05 per share, but the actual Q3 result was only $0.04 per share.

As well, Snap’s revenues were actually a “beat” at $446 million versus the average analyst estimate of $435.1 million. Again, that’s a solid improvement over the same quarter of last year. Plus, analysts were expecting Snap’s average revenue per user to come in at $2.10. But the released number turned out to be $2.12 per user.

And probably the most important news was that the number of daily active users proved to be a decisive win for Q3, at 210 million versus the expected 207 million.
