3 Min Read

 (Updates Stifel's rating)
    July 13 (Reuters) - Snap Inc's shares were up 4.2
percent at $15.88 in early trading on Thursday, after IPO
underwriter Stifel raised its rating on the stock to "buy".
    The company's shares closed below their initial public offering
price of $17 for the first time on Monday, as investors become
increasingly concerned about the Snap's ability to grow amid intense
competition from the likes of Facebook Inc.
    Several of Snap's underwriters handed the stock "buy" ratings in
March, although analysts not involved in the IPO had assigned it
neutral or negative ratings.
    Following is a list of Snap's IPO underwriters and their current
coverage of the stock.
