For the second quarter of 2019, analysts expect the company to report a loss of 42 cents per share on revenues of $24.09 million. In the past one week, the average earnings estimate has been widened by 3 cents, which does not provide a good picture ahead of earnings.

However, Fiverr has been pretty consistent with top-line growth. In the first quarter of this year, it had posted 42% growth, while in the last year, it grew 45%. The market expects to see similar kind of growth this year and next year as the company robustly keeps adding to its freelancer base.
