The digital payment manager sees Q1 EPS at 6 to 8 cents, but analysts predict Square revenue of 12 cents. For the full year, Square's performance guidance for 2019 was strong, and the sales target was roughly in line, while the EBITDA projection was slightly light.
Square stock fell 6.7% in night trading. Stocks rose Wednesday to their best level since November 7. Square stock has slowly built the right side of what is shaping itself to be a cup base. The base is 51% deep. Offenses from consolidations that are more than 40% deep are less likely to succeed.
