Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP) will announce Q1 earnings this week on Thursday, April 18. The earnings from the last call were in the red, as is for many tech stocks. However, there is an important pattern to note from the last four quarters. Snap has been beating expectations by more than 100% each time. If the company was to maintain that pattern, the earnings might as well be positive this time.

The stock price of $33.19 is just above the 200-day moving average of $30. Consensus estimates put Snap above $60, despite the current headwinds in advertising revenue. This being the case, Snap is pleasantly discounted, and investors should take advantage of the price. This week’s earnings could be a catalyst for price appreciation from the current level.
