Why Palantir Technologies Stock Is Falling Today

Palantir Technologies Inc PLTR shares are trading lower Monday after the company reported worse-than-expected earnings results and issued weak guidance.

Palantir expects third-quarter revenue to be between $474 million and $475 million versus the estimate of $506.88 million. Adjusted income from operations is expected to be between $54 million and $55 million.
