Credit Suisse Finally Got Help

Shares of Credit Suisse (NYSE: CS) jumped by 5.56% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after the Swiss National Bank said that it could provide Credit Suisse with liquidity if needed.

Details: The positive report comes after shares of the bank dropped by 13% on Wednesday after its biggest backer, the Saudi National Bank, said that it would not provide financial assistance. Credit Suisse later said it would borrow over $54 billion from the Swiss National Bank.

Background: On Tuesday, shares of Credit Suisse plunged as the bank reported a “material weakness” in its financial reporting. The news comes as a few banks in the U.S. closed in the last week and Credit Suisse faced its own past liquidity issues.

Final Thoughts: With Credit Suisse down 72% in the past year, this is obviously a bad time to be an investor in the company. Certain bank stocks are not friendly given the tough environment for the sector.

Adobe Keeps Breaking Records

Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) jumped 5% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after the software company posted positive financial earnings results.

Financials: Adobe reported earnings of $3.88 per share in the past quarter and revenue of $4.66 billion; both were better than expected.

Details: The company achieved record Q1 revenue in the quarter, which was up 9%. Digital Media segment revenue also grew by 9%. Digital Experience segment revenue increased by 11% and Digital Experience subscription revenue increased by 12%.

Outlook: Adobe expects total revenue to be between $4.75 billion to $4.78 billion in the current quarter, which is better than what investors expected.

Stock Price: Shares of Adobe are down 24% in the last 12 months and are down 8% in the last 30 days.

Final Thoughts: Adobe suffered in 2022 due to the downturn in the software market. Although there’s still a looming issue with the Department of Justice, the company is hoping for a recovery this year.

Five Below’s Lackluster Financial Outlook

A poor financial outlook sent shares of Five Below (Nasdaq: FIVE) down by 3.13% in after-hours trading on Wednesday.

Financials: Five Below reported earnings of $3.07 per share in the past quarter and revenue of $1.12 billion; both were better than expected.

Final Thoughts: The company only expects sales to increase by 4% in the current quarter. Even though discount stores typically do well in a slower economy, it is clear that Five Below is facing some trouble.
