Snap, the maker of Snapchat, saw its stock price shoot up as much 11% in after-hours trading on Tuesday after beating analyst expectations. However, the stock gave up most of those gains during the company's earnings call, as investors digested the numbers a bit more. It's currently up only about 1%.
The company posted a slimmer-than-expected loss for the first quarter as it continued to grow its user base and advertising revenue.
Here's how the company did compared with analyst projections:
"In the first quarter we delivered strong results across our business with growth in daily active users and revenue," said CEO Evan Spiegel in a statement.
Snap kept its user growth momentum going on Tuesday, saying it now counts 190 million daily active users, up from 186 million last quarter.
Snap's share price is up more than 100% year to date after a fast start in 2019. Besides resurging user growth, Snap has announced a new gaming platform, new original shows, an ad network and more augmented reality features. The company has also completed the roll out of its re-engineered Android app.
During the company's earnings call, Spiegel said Snapchat's Android app is now available on all Android devices, which he said creates an opportunity to increase the app's user base.
"There are billions of Android devices in the world that now have access to an improved Snapchat experience, and we look forward to being able to grow our Snapchat community in new markets," Spiegel said.
One analyst expressed caution with Snap's user base and how attractive it can be to advertisers.
"Our primary concern is when you have a younger millennial audience on this platform, can you monetize this audience?" said Brent Thill of Jefferies.
