Snap Inc. shares are down nearly 7% after Cowen & Co. cut its price target for the multimedia instant-messaging app company to $45 from $75. It was also cut to market perform from outperform.

Shares in Snap have fallen in recent months after rising for most of the Covid-19 pandemic. The rise was fueled by the company's push into areas like wearable technology and sizeable user growth.
