Datadog sinks on disappointing forecast, guidance cut

Datadog shares plummeted more than 20% after the software company issued weaker-than-expected revenue guidance for the third quarter and trimmed its full-year outlook.

The fall in shares came despite a top-and-bottom line beat for the second quarter, with Datadog saying reporting adjusted earnings of 36 cents a share on $509.5 million in revenue. That came in ahead of 28 cents expected on revenues of $500.6 million, according to Refinitiv.

For the third quarter, the company said it expects revenues to range between $521 million and $525 million, below the $536.2 million expected by analysts polled by FactSet.

Datadog also trimmed revenue guidance for the full year, saying it now anticipates sales to range between $2.05 billion and $2.06 million. The company previously said it expected between $2.08 billion and $2.10 billion in revenue.

A poor macro backdrop has traders hopeful the Fed can stop raising rates, Ed Moya says

A raft of poor signals is weighing on investor sentiment Tuesday morning, including weak trade data out of China, as well as credit rating cuts from Moody’s on 10 small and midsize banks. UPS also cut its guidance, citing falling demand and rising costs following a new labor contract.

However, Oanda’s Ed Moya said the suddenly “gloomy” global macroeconomic backdrop has Wall Street hopeful the Federal Reserve could stop raising rates.

“Stocks are down, but it is not too ugly as Wall Street is starting to become very confident that global economic weakness will do the trick in getting inflation back to the Fed’s 2% target,” Moya wrote Tuesday. “Rate hike odds continue to edge lower for the September and November FOMC meetings, but the rate cuts for 2024 keep growing.”

Traders are expecting an 85.5% likelihood the Fed will keep rates where they are when policymakers convene in September, according to the CME Fedwatch Tool. They expect a 14.5% chance the central bank could raise rates by another quarter percentage point.

Meanwhile, in January, they’re expecting a 47.4% probability the Fed will hold, and a 33.2% likelihood the Fed will cut rates by a quarter percentage point.

Philadelphia Fed President: Interest rate-hiking cycle may be finished

The U.S. central bank could be at the end of its current interest rate-hiking cycle, Philadelphia Federal Reserve President Patrick Harker said Tuesday.

“Absent any alarming new data between now and mid-September, I believe we may be at the point where we can be patient and hold rates steady and let the monetary policy actions we have taken do their work,” Harker said in prepared remarks for a speech in Philadelphia.

But he also said there may not be any cuts to rates in the near future.

“Allow me to be clear about one thing, however. Should we be at that point where we can hold steady, we will need to be there for a while,” he said. “The pandemic taught us to never say never, but I do not foresee any likely circumstance for an immediate easing of the policy rate.”

Analysts are divided on Palantir’s A.I. ambitions

Palantir Technologies lifted its forecast for annual revenue on Monday as it sees an opportunity to commercialize artificial intelligence, but not all analysts are on the same page.

Dan Ives, managing director at Wedbush Securities, is bullish on the U.S. firm’s AI ambitions. The investment firm said “a star is born,” referring to Palantir’s AI platform, AIP. The platform allows militaries and businesses to tap large language models and AI to support decision-making.

However, another analyst disagreed and said Palantir is “not truly a generative AI company.”

“When we look at Palantir and based on our conversations with [industry observers and Palantir’s employees], this does not appear to be anything truly differentiated when it comes to generative AI,” said Rishi Jaluria, managing director at RBC Capital Markets, on CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia” on Tuesday.

Dow standout Amgen closed above a key threshold Monday

Amgen‘s nearly 4% gain on Monday helped lift the Dow Jones Industrial Average, but it also put the pharmaceutical giant’s shares over an important level.

Monday’s close marked the first time Amgen closed above its 200-day moving average since April 6. The stock also had the greatest positive point impact on the 30-stock index, accounting for nearly 64 positive Dow points.

The 200-day moving average has a special meaning for chart technicians. For instance, it can give some insight into whether the stock is heading into an uptrend or a downtrend. In this case, Amgen’s close above that threshold could be a positive sign.

Amgen’s gains arrive on the heels of its second-quarter earnings beat, issued late last week. The company posted earnings of $5 per share, excluding items, on revenue of $6.99 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet anticipated earnings of $4.49 and revenue of $6.66 billion.
