Sonos, Inc. (NASDAQ: SONO)



Trending stocks
SONO Hype and price graph

Background:


Sonos, Inc. is an American developer and manufacturer of audio products best known for its multi-room audio products.


The company was founded in 2002 by John MacFarlane, Craig Shelburne, Tom Cullen, and Trung Mai. Patrick Spence has been its CEO since 2017.



Summary:


Sonos reported a 24% year-over-year decrease in revenue for the fiscal second quarter ending April 1.


While the quarter went about as management expected, the company reduced its full-year revenue guidance. It now expects revenue to be down between 4% and 7% over fiscal 2022, or 2% to 5% on a currency-neutral basis. This compares to the previous outlook ranging from a 3% decline to a 3% increase over last year.


Spending for discretionary products is challenged right now because of the economy and Sonos' premium products aren't immune.


Sonos still believes it can profitably grow to $2.5 billion in annual revenue. But right now this business is challenged, and it's unclear when things will improve.

Background:


Zscaler accelerates digital transformation so that customers can be more agile, efficient, resilient, and secure. The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange protects thousands of customers from cyberattacks and data loss by securely connecting users, devices, and applications in any location.


Summary:


Zscaler made a positive pre-announcement, and a Wall Street analyst issued a note suggesting the optimization in cloud software spending might be coming to an end.


Management disclosed it now expects a big beat relative to analyst estimates, with third-quarter revenue projected to be between $415 million and $419 million, much higher than its prior guidance of $396 million to $398 million and consensus expectations of $400.5 million.


In addition, non-GAAP (adjusted) operating income is now projected at $60 million to $64 million, versus prior guidance of $55 million to $56 million.


Chairman and CEO Jay Chaudhry said: "We had a strong finish to the quarter as the high ROI of adopting the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange platform continues to resonate with customers and prospects in this challenging macro environment. ... Our customer engagements are strong, and our platform continues to expand with innovations that solve our customers' real-time IT challenges."


Although the 4% overall increase might seem unimportant, it is worth noting that the stock went up over 30% over the last 12 days.
