Lyft stock jumps on upbeat Q2 results, forecast

Lyft Inc. (NASDAQ: LYFT) reported a wider loss in the second quarter due to stock-based compensation and related payroll tax expenses, primarily due to RSU expense recognition in connection with its initial public offering.

The bottom line was narrower than the analysts’ expectations while the top line exceeded consensus estimates. Further, the company guided third-quarter revenue above the Street’s view and raised its revenue guidance for the full year 2019. Following this, the stock advanced over 10% in the after-market session.

Net loss was $644.24 million, wider than a loss of $178.9 million in the previous year quarter. On a per-share basis, the loss narrowed to $2.23 from $8.48 a year earlier due to the higher weighted average number of shares outstanding. Adjusted loss per share improved to $0.68 from $8.37 a year ago.
