"If you want to be a creative company, you have got to be comfortable with and basically enjoy the fact that people copy your stuff", Spiegel said on its first earnings call in May.

Other research analysts have also recently issued research reports about the stock.

Snap has suffered from falling stock prices since floating on the United States share market earlier this year. Jefferies Group LLC reissued a "buy" rating and issued a $30.00 price objective on shares of Snap in a research report on Monday, April 17th.

Snap chief executive Evan Spiegel said during an earnings call that he and fellow co-founder Bobby Murphy "believe deeply" in the longterm success of the company and would not sell any of their shares this year.

Shares fell almost 8 percent to below $13 at one point in after-hours trading after closing at $13.77, up 21 cents on the day. Nine research analysts have rated the stock with a sell rating, twenty-one have given a hold rating and fourteen have assigned a buy rating to the company. Finally, Instinet restated a "reduce" rating and set a $14.00 target price on shares of Snap in a report on Friday, June 9th. Since then, Snap has worked to court advertisers and media outlets looking to connect with the company's younger audience, who have been drawn to its ephemeral messages, creative filters, and short-form content.

Snap Inc.'s flagship product, Snapchat, has suffered from unfavorable comparisons to Facebook's Instagram Stories, which is a clone meant to compete for the company's users.
