Amazon (AMZN) stock prices show improving investor confidence despite disappointing revenue forecasts.

During post market trading yesterday, the AMZN share price fell by almost 10%. This fall comes after the tech giant made its earnings announcement, this was because the earnings missed investor forecasts. The slightly disappointing revenue in Q1 of Amazon came as a result, amongst other things, of a decrease in consumer spending online and a return to in-person-activities.

Amazon attributed its disappointing earnings to the current adverse economic conditions partly coming from the Russia-Ukraine conflict and partly from the issues around supply chains. Their earnings increase is 37% lower (Q1 2022: 7%, Q1 2021: 44%) than this time last year and their EPS has fallen by 0.84 cents for the same time period.

(KO) Coca-Cola Earnings Posted Exceeding Expectations, Elon Musk’s Target on Twitter (TWTR) Coming To Life!?

Rebecca Duthie Rebecca Duthie 25.04.2022 17:02
Summary: Coca-Cola’s earnings beat analyst expectations. The deal between Twitter and Elon Musk is coming to life. The earnings report posted earlier today by Coca-Cola exceeded investor and market expectations. These favorable earnings came despite their Russian business suspension, they managed to meet their full-year outlook for organic revenue and comparable EPS growth. The growth seemed to come mainly from increased demand for powerade and Costa coffee. The price increase also came despite the increase in inflation and in costs such as aluminum, high fructose corn syrup and plastic. The future of Coca-Cola’s stock price is uncertain, it may have managed to weather the inflation and market volatility storms for now, but we may not see the same growth in the next quarter.
