Nasdaq, Bitcoin decline;  Adobe stumbles due to weak expectations

Adobe shares decline after reporting record quarterly revenue, modest guidance

45 minutes ago

Shares of Adobe (ADBE) fell on Friday morning after the company beat first-quarter earnings estimates, but issued modest guidance for the second quarter.

The company reported first-quarter fiscal 2024 revenue of $5.18 billion. This record rise exceeded analyst estimates compiled by Visible Alpha and represents 11% year-over-year growth.

Adobe's net income for this quarter of $2.05 billion also exceeded analysts' expectations and rose from the previous quarter and the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $4.48 beat expectations and grew compared to the prior quarter and year as well.

The company said it expects second-quarter revenue of between $5.25 billion and $5.3 billion. However, analysts expected guidance at the upper end of that range at $5.3 billion.

Adobe shares fell more than 13% to $493 on Friday morning. However, the stock is up nearly 47% in the past year.
