However, this revenue estimate is higher than Snap's own forecast of sales of between $1.32Bln and $1.375Bln. Besides the top and bottom lines, the Snapchat+ subscription service is what investors will be looking at. it reached more than five million paying subscribers in the third quarter. In November, Snap announced a partnership with Amazon to enable US Snapchat users to buy products from online retailers without leaving the app. Also, it plans to cut its global headcount by about 10%. This was announced yesterday just before the start of the US session. No doubt it will be discussed in tonight's conference call. Over the last year, its share price has gained about 55%, but the stock remains very far from its 2021 highs.

Snap, a social media company, is about to announce its financial performance for the fourth quarter. Experts predict that Snap will have a loss of 17 cents and make revenues of $1.38 billion, which is more than what Snap itself expected.

Another interesting aspect is Snap's partnership with Amazon, which allows users to make purchases directly within the app. This feature helps to keep users engaged and active.

Snap is also planning to reduce its staff by 10% globally, and this news will likely be discussed during the conference call.
