Future outlook and expert’s remarks
Adobe cited the decision to pull out of Russia and Belarus, summer seasonality, and foreign-exchange headwinds as it lowered its revenue guidance for the full year. The stock is down nearly 40% for the year.
It now forecasts $17.65 billion in revenue and $13.50 of adjusted EPS. In comparison, analysts had called for $13.65 a share of adjusted earnings on $17.85 billion in revenue. Discussing the earnings report on CNBC’s “Closing Bell: Overtime”, Decatur Capital’s Degas Wright said:
It did beat on earnings and revenue. So, that’s positive. The stock always goes down on announcement day so I’m not surprised. We’re satisfied with this because their cloud subscription revenue beat by 15%. So, Adobe is still looking like a stock that we’re holding.
