Sturdy actual property firm Cushman & Wakefield (CWK -10.74%) wasn’t a really sturdy funding on Friday. The corporate’s inventory took a nasty hit, falling by almost 11% a day after it printed its newest set of quarterly outcomes. That decline did not mirror the widely good efficiency of many different shares on the week’s final day; the bellwether S&P 500 index gained almost 2% as Cushman & Wakefield’s shares dived.
Cushman & Wakefield’s first-quarter figures had been unveiled after market hours Thursday. These revealed that the corporate earned just below $2.25 billion in income; this was down 4% from its Q1 2022 take. Extra discouragingly, the actual property mainstay plunged into the pink on the underside line; its non-GAAP (adjusted) web loss was $9.4 million, or $0.04 per share, towards the year-ago revenue of $109 million.
These headline numbers had been fairly far away from the common analyst estimates.
Collectively, pundits following Cushman & Wakefield inventory had been modeling solely $1.49 billion in income. Far much less fortunately, they believed the corporate would submit an adjusted web outcome nicely within the black at $0.22 per share.
Citing macroeconomic headwinds as a serious affect on its quarterly efficiency, Cushman & Wakefield mentioned the scenario might have been worse. It quoted CEO John Forrester as saying that “our world diversified portfolio, particularly in our recurring income service strains, helped mitigate the impression of decrease demand for transactional companies in our trade.”
The corporate didn’t present any steerage in its earnings report.
