    Fitbit shares tank after reporting a weak outlook amid rising competition

    Fitbit is not having a good day, with the stock crashing more than 11 percent after reporting its first-quarter results. Here’s the rub: its guidance for the second quarter came in light. Very light. Industry watchers were expecting the company to report earnings around 26 cents per share, while the company put its outlook at earnings between 8 cents per share and 11 cents per share. Read More

  • Twitter’s dysfunctional Wall Street relationship

    Twitter’s dysfunctional Wall Street relationship

    Twitter’s stock is cratering this week following its earnings report on Tuesday, down around 15% and shaving more than a billion dollars off its market cap — again. This isn’t even an all-time low for Twitter. But the company is a long, long ways from its successful run after its initial public offering. At the time, Twitter was showing — while slow — user growth… Read More

    Apple, Alphabet, Amazon and every other letter had a wild week on Wall Street

    This week was completely loaded with earnings reports from some of the biggest tech companies in the world — and it was a crazy week of swings for most of the companies that reported. There’s a running theme here: growth is being heavily rewarded — and lack of growth, punished — by Wall Street. And that’s especially true when it comes to more mature companies. Read More

  • Pandora up 6% on strong earnings but Rdio and Ticketfly buys don’t pay much yet

    Pandora up 6% on strong earnings but Rdio and Ticketfly buys don’t pay much yet

    Pandora continues to flail as Internet radio becomes just a feature baked into competitors like Spotify and Apple Music, but at least it had strong Q1 2016 earnings today. Pandora pulled in $297.3 million revenue and had $-0.20 Non-GAAP EPS, compared to estimates of $-0.32 Non-GAAP EPS. [Correction: $-0.51 EPS is GAAP, meaning results were a beat, not mixed.] That revenue came from ads… Read More

    Amazon’s Web Services are shining in its latest earnings beat

    Amazon posted its first-quarter earnings today, and boy did they not disappoint: it beat what analysts were expecting on nearly all fronts, and the stock is up more than 12% after its huge beat. The big one here, in particular, is Amazon Web Services. AWS has become a go-to for most businesses, so it’s not surprising that it’s seeing that segment continue to grow steadily. The… Read More

    Facebook expects VR will have no material impact on 2016 revenue

    If you think Facebook will get rich on Oculus, you better be patient. Mark Zuckerberg said on the Q1 2016 earnings call he sees VR as a long, long-term bet rather than a way to make a quick buck on 3D games. “This is early and it’s going to take a long time. There’s a lot of hype around this.” He explained that while VR, like AI and Internet connectivity are… Read More
