Earnings releases were light this week, but a couple of newly public companies announced results: Workday ( WDAY)and Splunk ( SPLK). Workday reported its first earnings report as a public company, beating Wall Street estimates. The company generated a third-quarter loss of 39 cents a share on $72.6 million in revenue, doubling from a year earlier. Wall Street analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a loss of 59 cents a share. For the fourth quarter, Workday expects sales of $75 million to $79 million. Analysts, on average, expect Workday to generate revenue of $70.7 million.
Next week is light on the earnings front. As the year winds down, I'll be looking back at some of my predictions for 2012, making some new ones for 2013 and writing some interesting columns and pieces. Enjoy the weekend, everyone.
