: SNAP | Snap Inc.  News, Ratings, and Charts

SNAP – The internet industry has been rebounding as the markets stabilize following their correction earlier this year. And despite the latest Federal Reserve’s interest rate increase last week, internet companies are expected to maintain their growth trajectory thanks to robust global demand. So, Wall Street analysts are betting on popular internet stocks Snap Inc. (SNAP), DoorDash (DASH), Twilio (TWLO), InterActiveCorp (IAC), and Angi Inc. (ANGI) to gain momentum soon. Read on.

Tech stocks have been making a comeback after being hard hit by the extended market weakness earlier this year. This is evident in the benchmark tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index’s 10.3% gains over the past five days. The latest Fed rate increase hike caused equities to gain momentum, because investors and economists have been predicting the rate increase for quite some time.

With the pandemic necessitating more remote work, internet usage is increasing at an extraordinary rate worldwide. However, technology access is becoming cheaper each day despite the skyrocketing inflation rates. In fact, broadband prices have declined over the past five years. Furthermore, with companies adopting hybrid working models globally and integrating more advanced technology, the demand for high-speed internet connections is expected to grow.

Given this backdrop, Wall Street analysts expect quality internet stocks Snap Inc. (SNAP), DoorDash, Inc. (DASH), Twilio Inc. (TWLO), IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC), and Angi Inc. (ANGI) to rally by more than 45% in price in the coming months.
