Snap Inc. (SNAP) Rating Lowered to Sell at Zacks Investment Research”

It's not the first time Snap has laid off employees in recent months.

A woman stands in front of the logo of Snap Inc. on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) while waiting for Snap post their IPO, in New York City, New York, U.S. on March 2, 2017. It doesn't appear as though the situation improved over the summer.

Snap badly overestimated demand for its Spectacles and now has hundreds of thousands of unsold units sitting in warehouses, either fully assembled or in parts, according to two people close to the company. Piper Jaffray Companies reissued a hold rating on shares of Snap in a research report on Wednesday, October 11th.

A surplus in Spectacles would indicate that Snap meant to sell far more units of the social headgear.

Several hedge funds and other institutional investors have recently made changes to their positions in SNAP. Snap's revenue for the quarter was up 153.1% on a year-over-year basis. Following the sale, the vice president now owns 2,440,055 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $31,818,317.20. Finally, Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management Company LTD grew its position in Snap by 2,592.8% in the 2nd quarter.
