Why Meta Platforms Stock Is Falling After Hours

Meta Platforms Inc META shares are trading lower in Thursday's after-hours session in sympathy with Snap Inc SNAP, which reported worse-than-expected financial results.

Snap said second-quarter revenue increased 13% year-over-year to $1.11 billion, which missed the estimate of $1.14 billion, according to data from Benzinga Pro. The social media company reported a quarterly loss of 2 cents per share, which missed the estimate for a loss of 1 cent per share. Daily active users increased 18% year-over-year to 347 million.

Given uncertainties related to the operating environment, Snap said it would refrain from providing third-quarter revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance.
