Stock Futures Signal Drop


Stock futures took a downward trend on Wednesday as investors shifted their attention towards data on U.S. economic growth and inflation.

Company Highlights for Wednesday

Beyond Meat

Beyond Meat saw a remarkable 72% surge despite a 7.8% decline in fourth-quarter revenue to $73.7 million compared to the previous year. The company managed to surpass Wall Street expectations of $66.7 million. In response to this, the plant-based meat producer announced plans to significantly reduce operating expenses and cash usage this year through strategic pricing actions and restructuring production operations aimed at enhancing profit margins.


Shares of eBay climbed by 3.5% after the online marketplace reported fourth-quarter earnings that outperformed analysts’ estimates. The company also announced an increase in its quarterly dividend and a new $2 billion stock buyback program. eBay anticipates first-quarter revenue between $2.5 billion and $2.54 billion, slightly above the consensus estimate of $2.53 billion.

First Solar

First Solar exceeded earnings projections for the fourth quarter, reaching $1.2 billion in revenue, slightly below the anticipated $1.3 billion. Nevertheless, the stock rose by 4.6% following the solar energy corporation’s forecast of net sales between $4.4 billion and $4.6 billion in 2024, with expected earnings ranging from $13 to $14 per share. Analysts had previously predicted sales of $4.56 billion and earnings of $13.26 per share.

Urban Outfitters (URBN)

Lemonade shares dropped by 18% after the insurance company shared plans to significantly increase its growth budget in 2024, aiming to double the $55 million spent in the previous year.
