Piper Jaffray Companies dropped their price objective on shares of Snap from $16.00 to $14.00 and set a neutral rating for the company in a research note on Thursday, May 11th.
Snap shares were down 13.36 per cent at $11.93 in extended trading. The percentage-based deceleration was largely dismissed as the impact of a fast-growing user base that made future growth look relatively weaker. They noted that the move was a valuation call. "We believe deeply in the long-term success of Snap".
Snap has struggled since going public in March amid concerns about disappointing user growth, mounting losses, and the end of its stock lock-up period, which opens the door for insiders to sell their shares.
In light of the 20% plunge shares of Snapchat-parent Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) suffered following the mid-May release of its first-quarter numbers, SNAP stock holders were understandably nervous as Thursday's closing bell approached.
The prepared meal company Blue Apron, which started trading in June, has also lost much of its value.
