Sonos plunges after first earnings report as public company

by Volker Weber

Sketch

In the letter Spence said the company wants to accelerate growth of sales directly to customers, as opposed to sales through third parties. Selling directly results in a profit margin "tends to be about 10 points better" that indirect sales, Spence said. About 12 percent of Sonos' sales is direct -- through the Sonos website, the company's app and its customer relationship management system -- since the beginning of the year, he said.

Umsatz ist YoY gefallen. Und jetzt will Sonos auch noch die Partner abziehen. Nicht gut. Ich schlage vor, weiterhin bei ueberall-musik.de zu kaufen.

Wie bei jeder anderen börsennotierten Aktiengesellschaft steht jetzt Gewinnmaximierung an erster Stelle.
Mal sehen wie lange es noch Updates für die Sonos Player gibt, die schon länger nicht mehr verkauft werden (z.B. Play:5 Gen. 1). Die Updates kosten schließlich auch Geld.
Mir gefällt die Entwicklung bei Sonos gar nicht.

Gestern am späten Vormittag bestellt und jetzt liegst hier im Büro neben mir. Man braucht kein Amazon.

Hab ich da was verpasst? "revenue: $208.4 million, vs. $208 million as expected by analysts... It's expecting to report $1.109 to $1.114 billion in revenue for that period. Analysts had expected guidance of $1.112 billion in revenue for the full year" Die Differenz sind eigentlich nur Marginalien. Klar, die profitability ist nicht da, aber das wussten die shareholder schon vor dem IPO. War da zuviel Fantasie im Preis?
