11:12 EDTFUELRocket Fuel gets multiple downgrades after earnings, but Janney still positive
Shares of Rocket Fuel (FUEL) are plunging after the company reported lower than expected fourth quarter revenue and provided first quarter revenue guidance that came in below expectations. Several analysts responded to the news by downgrading the stock, but research firm Janney Capital wrote that the company's potential reward still outweighs its risks. Rocket Fuel has developed a decision making and modeling platform that is based on big data and artificial intelligence. WHAT'S NEW: Rocket Fuel reported a Q4 per share loss, excluding certain items, of (18c), versus analysts' consensus estimate of a (21c) per share loss. The company's revenue came in at $139.5M, versus the consensus outlook of $147M. Rocket Fuel provided Q1 revenue guidance of $57M-$58M, versus the consensus outlook of $69.5M. Of note, the company said, "Given the limited visibility inherent in our rapidly growing and changing industry, Rocket Fuel is only providing specific financial guidance for the first quarter of 2015." ANALYST REACTION: A number of firms downgraded Rocket Fuel following the company's results. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster downgraded the shares to Neutral from Overweight, saying that the company's transition to "more of a software platform" has made its risk/reward ratio unattractive, while its results raise questions about its business model. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein downgraded the shares to Perform from Outperform, as he believes that the company lacks positive catalysts. Needham also downgraded the shares, cutting its rating on the stock to Hold from Buy. Although Rocket Fuel provided "very disappointing" Q1 guidance and the company is running into difficulties selling its products at trading desks, the company can overcome its challenges over time, Janney Capital analyst Murali Sankar contended. Rocket Fuel has started to build stronger relationships with the executives of trading firms, according to the analyst, who lowered his fair value estimate on the shares to $17.50 from $25.50, but kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Rocket Fuel fell 25% to $11. Over the last year the stock is down about 79%.
