Adobe Climbed Regardless of Light Guidance
The shares of Adobe accelerate above 4% after hours on Tuesday. It follows the announcement of the company about its better-than-expected earnings for the second quarter of 2019 fiscal year, closed on May 31. Aside from that, the multinational software company also reported smaller-than-expected guidance.
The earnings per share of Adobe is $1.83, omitting certain items. However, the analysts’ expectation of its earning per share is only about $1.78.
In addition to that, Adobe’s revenue hits $2.74 billion. But analysts’ expectation is lower, $2.71 billion.
Moreover, the revenue of the company rose 25% year over year during the quarter.
Digital Media, the most significant business segment of Adobe, made $1.89 billion in revenue. It grew 22% and surpassed the consensus estimate of analysts of $1.86 billion. Also, Digital Media holds the Creative Cloud and Document Cloud products.
Aside from that, the Digital Experience segment, which includes Magneto and Marketo, hit a revenue of $783.5 million. And it beat the $777.2 consensus estimate of FactSet. Also, the Publishing segment had revenue of $70.6 million. It was better than the $66.1 million prospects.
And in the quarter, Adobe disclosed a $7.47 billion in annualized recurring revenue for its Digital Media business. It exceeded the FactSet consensus of $7.44 billion.
Tom Roderick noted, “With Digital Media ARR growth coming down from 30%-plus range in the last couple of quarters, investors have begun to question the long-term growth potential of the segment.”
And to create higher growth, some analyst advised additional price increases.

Tesla Losing Employees
Meanwhile, Felicia Mayo, Vice President of Human Resources and Head of Diversity in Tesla, was out of the company.
Adding to that, Tesla broadened its operations internationally during her term. Also, it started to manufacture the Model 3 electric sedan in high volumes.
The company’s spokesperson announced, “We have a talented HR team in place that will continue to report into our VP of People & Places and will remain focused on advancing our mission and making Tesla a great place to work.”
Aside from that, Tesla is a mission-driven, and hard-driving workplace with considerable pressure to reach ambitious goals and deadlines meted out by CEO Elon Musk. And in recent years, these settings led the company to a higher level of churn among Tesla executives.
Before Mayo’s resignation, other Tesla executives also filed their departure in the past year. In particular, these people are Tesla’s former chief people officer, General Counsel, VP of Legal, CFO, and its VP of Engineering.
