Shares of Palantir plunged more than 15% in premarket Monday after the company issued a weaker-than-expected revenue outlook and missed its first-quarter earnings bottom line.
Here are the key numbers:
- Earnings per share (EPS): 2 hundred adj. vs 4 cents expected, according to a Refinitiv survey of analysts

Palantir said it expects $470 million in revenue for the current quarter, which is lower than analysts’ expectations of $483.7 million, per FactSet. The software company, known for its work with the government, said there is a “wide range of potential benefits” in its guidance “including those driven by our role in responding to developing geopolitical events”.
