Market Price

On Tuesday, August 1, 2023, SHUTTERSTOCK reported its earnings results for the second quarter of FY2023. The stock opened at $52.1 but closed at $46.4, a drop of 9.8% from its previous closing price of $51.4. This significant decrease in SHUTTERSTOCK’s stock price could be attributed to the company’s weaker-than-expected results in the quarter. Although SHUTTERSTOCK reported an increase in revenue and subscription numbers, the company failed to meet analysts’ estimates and expectations. SHUTTERSTOCK’s financial report was heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, resulting in a decrease in the use of its services.

In reaction to the results, investors remain cautious about the company’s future outlook. As such, there could be further downward pressure on SHUTTERSTOCK’s stock price in the short-term. Analysts are expecting a recovery in the second half of this year, as the economy is slowly returning to pre-pandemic levels. Going forward, it remains to be seen how SHUTTERSTOCK’s earnings report will shape up for the rest of this fiscal year. Live Quote…
