Digital Realty Trust Forecasts Lower Revenue for Fiscal 2024, Shares Decline

Given the uncertain economic climate, Digital Realty Trust DLR.N expects its fiscal 2024 revenue to fall short of market projections. This is because it is spending less on data centres. In the extended trading session that followed the news, the companys shares fell 4%. Due to high financing costs, businesses favour larger data centre operators like Equinix EQIX.O, affecting demand for smaller competitors like Digital Realty. Known for renting out managed data centres for various industries, Digital Realty and Blackstone BX.N partnered to create data centres for $7 billion last year. Despite missing projections with its fourthquarter sales of $1.37 billion, Digital Realty is nevertheless upbeat about its funds from operations, which rose to $1.53 per share from $1.45 per share in the previous year.

Despite a spike in delivery orders, DoorDashs most recent financial report showed a largerthanexpected deficit for the fourth quarter of 2023, ascribed to higher labour expenses. A 9.3% increase in total costs impacted the companys profitability. DoorDash expects to absorb early expenses and reduce them over time. Still, in response to new rules, it has increased the minimum wage for delivery workers. Despite significant marketing expenditures and service diversification efforts, such as grocery and alcohol delivery, DoorDashs estimated quarterly profitability indicator failed to meet analyst projections. The corporation launched a $1.1 billion share repurchase programme to fight Ubers rivalry. Looking ahead, DoorDash hopes to increase Gross Order Value GOV in 2024 from $66.8 billion in 2023 to $74 billion to $78 billion. Read More..

In a regulatory filing, JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM.N revealed that it would reimburse authorities for civil fines amounting to about $350 million, for which it failed to notify surveillance platforms of incomplete trade data. Most of the missing data was related to specific order and trading data from its Corporate and Investment Bank division that needed to be included in its trade monitoring systems. Even though the gaps found only made up a small portion of the total activity, it was noteworthy that one venue—sponsored client access activity—was left out. JPMorgan made it clear that there was no proof of employee wrongdoing or damage to customers or the market. While talks with a third regulator are still underway, the fines are anticipated to settle the issue with two US agencies. Read More..
