Re: SnapChat IPO

WeChat is generating $1b+ annual profits. That's probably SNAP (or any other messenger)'s endgame.

I am not sure SNAP has the critical mass in any market that WeChat does in China to monetize with payment services and so on.

Re: SnapChat IPO

- acquire venmo, try to become the american version of WeChat

- try to build their own version of Magic Leap via spectacles, then dominate the industry of augmented reality that maybe becomes "the" thing 10 years from now.

Re: SnapChat IPO

There's a better chance of PayPal buying Snap than them selling Venmo to Snap.

Re: SnapChat IPO

Snap reports their first earnings report at the close today. Biggest number everyone will be looking at is user growth and DAU+MAU. I've seen reports calling for accelerating growth and even seen some with negative growth.

If I'm not mistaken, I do believe Snap counts their MAU numbers differently than FB and TWTR. (They do a rolling average over the quarter rather than last month of quarter count.)
