Dow Jones Industrial Averages continue under pressure after President Trump dismissal of FBI director. However, fortunately for Nasdaq, the index continue making new record high. Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) crushed in after-market trading Yesterday after reported massive losses of $2.2 billion in the first quarter. This lost mostly caused by the realization of stock compensation cost during IPO where the company awards its CEO Evan Spiegel special stock award. Interestingly, this special stock award should be awarded quarterly for three years, but all of it awarded in the first quarter this year. Furthermore, SNAP does not provide financial forecast guidance which clouds the company future more.
