After a trio of clunkers over the past year, Snap Inc. finally turned in an impressive quarterly earnings report Tuesday, beating expectations for revenue and user growth for the first time as a public company. The company's stock chart Tuesday afternoon looked similar to the trajectory of Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket, launched into outer space just minutes before Snapreported - straight up.

Its growth over the three months of the third quarter was 2.9%. The company has demonstrated meteoric growth in users since 2014, quadrupling its user base since January 2014 from 46 million to 187 million.
"Our business really came together towards the end of previous year and I am very proud of our team for working hard to deliver these results", said Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel in prepared remarks to Tuesday's earnings call.
