Heading into the new earnings season, here's a look back at some of the most exciting (and some less so) results from Q3. Today we are looking at the data analytics stocks, starting with Amplitude (NASDAQ:AMPL).
Organizations generate a lot of data that is stored in silos, often in incompatible formats, making it slow and costly to extract actionable insights, which in turn drives demand for modern cloud-based data analysis platforms that can efficiently analyze the silo-ed data.
The 4 data analytics stocks we track reported a decent Q3; on average, revenues beat analyst consensus estimates by 2.14%, while on average next quarter revenue guidance was 1.54% above consensus. The technology sell-off has been putting pressure on stocks since November and data analytics stocks have not been spared, with share price plummeting down 46.7% since earnings, on average.
