Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) Outpaces Stock Market Gains
Twitter closed at $32.95 in the latest trading session, marking a +1.79% move from the prior day. The stock outpaced the S&P 500’s daily gain of 1.07%. At the same time, the Dow added 0.65%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq gained 1.71%.
Prior to today’s trading, shares of the short messaging service had lost 3.17% over the past month. This has lagged the Computer and Technology sector’s loss of 2.02% and the S&P 500’s loss of 0.58% in that time.
Wall Street will be looking for positivity from TWTR as it approaches its next earnings report date. This is expected to be February 7, 2019. In that report, analysts expect TWTR to post earnings of $0.25 per share. This would mark year-over-year growth of 31.58%. Meanwhile, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenue is projecting net sales of $871.79 million, up 19.17% from the year-ago period.
Any recent changes to analyst estimates for TWTR should also be noted by investors. These recent revisions tend to reflect the evolving nature of short-term business trends. As a result, we can interpret positive estimate revisions as a good sign for the company’s business outlook.
