The stock still remains above its IPO price of $17 but has been steadily declining since it peaked at $29 on its second day on the market.

MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson yesterday put the dreaded "sell" tag on Snap, warning in a note that "the market has priced SNAP for perfection."

Other market watchers have warned that Snap may never turn a profit due to slowing user growth, widening losses and lack of voting rights for outside investors.

Of nine analysts contacted by Reuters, six have rated Snap a "sell", three judged the stock neutral and none recommend buying.
