Salesforce's Slow Growth 🚨

The less-than-stellar year for Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) continued Wednesday with mixed financial results, causing the stock to fall by 16.02% in after-hours trading.

Financials: Salesforce reported earnings of $2.44 per share in the past quarter, which was better than expected. But revenue only reached $9.13 billion, which was lower than expected.

Outlook: The company only expects sales to grow between 7% to 8% in the current quarter and between 8% to 9% in the fiscal year. Salesforce usually grows by double-digits, so this projection is weak.

Stock Price: Salesforce was up just 6% this year, even as other tech stocks soared. 

Final Thoughts: Investors are fed up with Salesforce. Enterprise sales are a problem and the company can’t seem to capitalize on the growing AI trend.
