- Odeon's Jahanara Nissar says the firm's conversations show advertisers are bullish on Snap (SNAP -0.6%), particularly as a third alternative to Google and Facebook, but hedge funds consistently told Odeon it's hard to own Snap because of a range of outcomes.

- Meanwhile, Barclays has launched coverage of Snap at Equal Weight. It's set a price target of $24, about 8.7% upside from current pricing.
