Intuit's Tax Season Revenue

A mixed bag of financial earnings results caused shares of Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU) to drop by 5% in after-hours trading on Tuesday.

Financials: Intuit reported earnings of $8.92 per share in the past quarter, which was better than expected. Revenue was $6 billion, below estimates for the past quarter, which included tax season.

Details: Revenue for Credit Karma dropped 12% due to headwinds in personal loans, home loans, auto loans and auto insurance.

Outlook: In the current quarter, Intuit projects revenue to grow 9% to 10% and earnings per share of $1.43 to $1.48; analysts expected higher numbers.

Stock: Intuit is up 15% this year, including a 1% increase in the last 30 days.

Final Thoughts: It was a bad tax season for Intuit as fewer consumers filed taxes with Intuit’s TurboTax software. The company could have a tough time recovering if there’s a recession.
