SNOW Stock Plunges On Weak Outlook Amid Slowing Cloud Computing Growth

Snowflake (SNOW) on Wednesday reported first-quarter earnings that topped Wall Street targets, but the company’s product revenue outlook missed views amid slowing growth for cloud computing partners such as (AMZN). SNOW stock plunged on the news.


For the quarter ended April 30, Snowflake earnings came in at an adjusted 15 cents a share compared with no profits a year earlier. Analysts polled by FactSet expected Snowflake to report a 5-cent per share profit.

Further, revenue climbed 48% to $623.6 million, the software maker said. Analysts had predicted revenue of $609.7 million.

SNOW stock plunged 12.5% to near 155 in extended trading on the stock market today.

SNOW Stock: Outlook Misses Estimates

For the current quarter ending in July, Snowflake expects product revenue in a range of $620 million to $625 million. Meanwhile, analysts had expected $647.1 million.

SNOW stock had advanced 22% in 2023 heading into the Snowflake earnings report.

Snowflake sells data analytics and management tools that run on cloud-computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services, part of Amazon. Because Snowflake’s business model is consumption-based rather than subscription-based, bearish investors have raised concerns over a possible U.S. recession curbing demand.

SNOW stock holds a Relative Strength Rating of 92 out of a best-possible 99, according to IBD Stock Checkup.
