On Tuesday, Drexel Hamilton initiated coverage on Snap with a “buy” rating. The firm assigned a price target of $30. The stock currently trades at around $20.

“Snap views itself as “a camera company” and we believe this fosters a mindset for innovation to transcend the boundaries of its competitors,” the firm’s analyst Brian White said in the note to investors.

“We view Snap as a platform for the imagination that unlocks the creativity of its users and allows uninhibited expression with friends. Snap is a fun place to spend time which can be monetized,” White added.

Snap has the ability to reach the “most desirable” and “most difficult to reach generation for advertisers”: millennials, according to the report.

“Although other social messaging platforms enjoy a much higher user base, we believe Snapchat has a cachet with millennials that will be difficult for other platforms to garner,” White said.
