Why Twilio Stock Surged
- With the release of recent bank earnings, investors are hoping that this means the U.S. economy is more vital than ever before.
- Investors should expect upcoming volatility in Twilio.
What’s going on with Twilio stock
Shares of Twilio stock surged yesterday, with no specific news from the company. Like other stocks, the cloud-based communications software company rose as investors grew more optimistic about the market following recent quarterly results from banks.
As of yesterday’s market close, the Twilio (NYSE:TWLO) stock had increased by 4.1%.
Why we care
Investors have been looking for signs that the U.S. economy may be in better shape than they had feared. So when Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK), and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) released their quarterly results that surpassed expectations, investors were pleased.
The most recent quarter’s results exceeded analysts’ predictions, helping to drive market indices upward over the past few days.
Twilio investors are likely hoping that the banks’ solid earnings indicate that the U.S. economy is still strong despite rising inflation and aggressive interest rate increases from the Federal Reserve. Many tech stocks have fallen hard over the past year. So, Twilio investors are trying to regain their market optimism after their stock has plunged 80% in 12 months.
The market may not retain its recent gains for long. The Fed is considering hiking the federal funds rate again in November and December to reduce inflation. Currently, inflation is still at a nearly 40-year high.
To make matters worse, a report from Bloomberg economists was released yesterday. The report declared a 100% probability of a U.S. recession happening in the next 12 months.
No one can predict the future. However, investors in Twilio should be ready for more ups and downs in the stock price. The roller coaster will continue as people try to determine if a recession is on its way and how bad it might be.
On November 3, Twilio reports its third-quarter results. That’s when shareholders will get a more comprehensive understanding of the company’s financial situation.
