After the market closed yesterday, (AI) reported fiscal 4th quarter earnings. The company exceeded analyst estimates for revenue and profit alike – and yet, the stock fell off a cliff.

Revenue of $72.4 million came in well above the $71 million estimation from Wall Street. And while the company still reported a negative EPS, it was a narrower loss than anticipated. Experts were projecting a $0.17 loss, while the company reported a loss of just $0.13.

The company is performing better than expected…so why is it down more than 12% so far the morning after the earnings release? The full-year revenue outlook the company laid out came in under analyst expectations.

The company is looking for a revenue figure between $295-$320 million, whereas Wall Street was expecting at least $321 million. This narrow margin has spoiled the party and put a damper on what was otherwise a great earnings day for

The company stated that they’ve always led the charge in the enterprise AI market, from the early days of IoT, to unsupervised learning, supervised learning, NLP, deep learning, and reinforcement learning. Nothing is changing now as the world steps into generative AI. Still, the vibe throughout the market is that this is a miss for

Simply put, is not Nvidia. And yet, the market expects them to contend Wall Street’s latest darling company. After Nvidia raised their guidance for the remainder of the year dramatically, the weakened outlook of has left experts and investors underwhelmed.

Despite Poor Safety and Very Poor Upside Potential, AI Still Has Excellent Timing After This Small Step Backwards

The VectorVest system simplifies your trading strategy by giving you all the insights you need in 3 simple ratings. These are relative value (RV), relative safety (RS), and relative timing (RT).

Each rating sits on its own scale of 0.00-2.00, with 1.00 being the average. And, based on the overall VST rating for a given stock, VectorVest issues a clear buy, sell, or hold recommendation - at any given time. No more guessing games, no more emotional investing. Just follow the system to win more trades with less work! As for AI, here’s what you need to see:

  • Very Poor Upside Potential: The biggest issue for AI right now is the very poor RV rating of 0.46. This rating compares a stock’s long-term price appreciation potential to AAA corporate bond rates and risk. Making matters worse, the stock is overvalued - with a current value of just $7.60.
  • Poor Safety: In terms of risk, AI has poor safety as well. The RS rating of 0.74 is derived from a deep analysis of the company’s financial consistency & predictability, debt-to-equity ratio, and business longevity.
  • Excellent Timing: The one thing AI has going for it, though, is an excellent RT rating of 1.50 - suggesting the positive price trend that had been forming for stock is still strong. While it took a step back today, it’s still up nearly 22% in the past week and a whopping 252% since the start of the year. The rating is based on the direction, dynamics, and magnitude of the stock’s price movement day over day, week over week, quarter over quarter, and year over year.

All this said, the overall VST rating is fair at 1.05 - just above the average. Does that mean it’s still worth adding AI to your portfolio - is this a good dip to buy in at? Or, is it a sign of what’s to come? Get a clear answer on your next move with a free stock analysis at VectorVest today. (AI) stock analysis chart by VectorVest Mobile
