The Top Stock Losers for Thursday, May 9, 2019

07:45 05/09/2019

Some of the worst performing stocks of the day included:

Green Dot Corporation GDOT 

Shares of GDOT fell 26.4%, or $16.71 on the day after the company cut its guidance.

As the company ramps up its technology and marketing investments to help with its BaaS platform, it cut its full-year adjusted EBITDA forecast to between $255 million and $261 million – down from prior guidance of between $315 million an $321 million.  It also lowered its adjusted EPS to a new range of $2.82 and $2.91 from $3.59 to $3.67. 

Jumia Technologies JMIA 

JMIA pulled back 18.8%, or $6.22 on the day after taking a hit on a new short-seller report from Citron Research.  They note the stock is a scam.  “Jumia is the worst abuse of the IPO system since the Chinese RTO fraud boom almost a decade ago. Worse than being “the most expensive” US listed ecommerce company, Jumia reported financials show us a stagnant business that has burned through $1 billion and has moved the sucker’s game to the US Markets,” they note.

The Trade Desk Inc. TTD 

Shares of TTD plummeted 14.5%, or $32.19 on the day after only providing in-line second quarter revenue guidance.  That was after beating top and bottom line numbers.

First-quarter revenue increased 41% year over year to $121 million, which beat expectations for $117 million.  Non-GAAP EPS increased from $0.34 in the first quarter of 2018 to $0.49, beating forecasts for $0.25.  'In Q1, we continued to develop closer relationships with the biggest brands in the world,' said The Trade Desk CEO Jeff Green in the company's first-quarter earnings release. 'Over half of the companies in the S&P 500 have run campaigns on our platform. We are executing well.'

Unfortunately, investors were spooked once the company provided Q2 revenue guidance of only $154 million – in-line with expectations. 

The pullback may have been a severe overreaction.  Keep an eye on it.
