Nutanix tanks after missing Q3 revenue estimates and providing weaker outlook

Shares of Nutanix (Nasdaq: NTNX) tanked about 15% in the extended trading hours as the company’s fiscal third quarter 2019 revenue fell short of both analysts’ and the company’s predictions. Also, Nutanix’s weaker-than-expected guidance dragged the stock towards the negative territory.

Nutanix reported adjusted loss per share of $0.56 on revenue of $287.6 million. Wall Street expected the cloud services provider to report adjusted loss of $0.60 per share on revenue of $297.22 million. Nutanix stock was down 3.03% at $32.67 when the market closed today.
