The social networking site Snapchat, owned by Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), will grow revenues at least 50% per year for the next couple of years. Based on strong results in 2020, the management made a strong forecast for this year.
Snap stocks revenue enjoyed a 46 % rise in 2020, causing its overall revenue to set records for the year. The fourth-quarter resulted in even more outstanding sales, with a 62% annual jump. There are currently 265 million people using the Snapchat service, according to the company. As a result, Snap has stated that its next step will be to make a quantum leap in its annual revenue and probably be doing so over the next few years. If the company continues growing this way, at this rate, the company could generate revenues above $ 10 billion a year within a few years.
Investors are at risk from Snap’s loss. Accordingly, the company posted a total net loss of almost $ 945 million last year. To monetize its platform more efficiently, the company will put more focus on that. The main source of growth is expected to be advertising. There is a wide monetary disparity between the North American audience and the rest of the world. The company believes that it could be a key growth factor to monetize outside of the United States in the long run.
The cold shoulder of advertisers toward Facebook last year helped Snapchat’s advertising business. Also, Snap Inc. (SNAP) has become increasingly popular among small businesses, frustrated by the largest social networks’ advertising policies. Since SNAP stock remains popular on social media, it will need to remain one of the most attractive advertising platforms, especially since it reaches many paying audiences aged 18-34.
