Cramer encouraged by Credit Suisse call for 40% Snap stock rise


CNBC’s Jim Cramer said on Wednesday he likes what he read in a rare, bullish analyst note on Snap.

Shares of the Snaphcat-parent were sharply higher early Wednesday after Credit Suisse raised its price target for year-end 2018 from $17 to $20 per share.

Based on Snap’s closing price on Tuesday of $14.34 per share, a move to $20 would represent a nearly 40 percent increase.

In a note to clients, CS analysts said they’re maintaining their outperform rating while putting a “downside risk of about 6 percent” on the stock.

“This is an upgrade” based on the CS price target bump, Cramer argued. “Today is a suspend all belief day” and “craziness” when considering Snap’s drubbing since its March IPO, he added.

“I’ve been waiting for Snap to get back to that level where it became public,” Cramer said, “This is a very encouraging report.”

In the face of tough competition from social media giant Facebook, Snap has declined about 40 percent since its first-day closing price of $24.48 per share. The IPO was priced at $17 per share.

Cramer said he likes the note because many analysts have not said anything good about Snap, but he warned he’d recommend investors be in Facebook rather than Snap.
