The Ole Excuse Versus Catalyst Conundrum for Snap

The action in Snapchat this week raises a fairly common conundrum in markets and trading: Whether an event or series of events function as an excuse for an overdue market move or, instead, whether they act as a catalyst to precipitate the move.  SNAP was actually a name we were long last week, electing to sell into strength due to broad...
