Let’s take a look at how the Redbubble share price responded last earnings season.
Here’s how the Redbubble share price responded last year
The Redbubble share price rocketed to record highs after reporting its full-year results last reporting season.
Investors jumped for shares in the e-commerce company after Redbubble announced a 36% increase in marketplace revenue of $349 million for the year.
The e-commerce company also reported a surge in operating earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of 141% to $15.3 million.
Redbubble cited the acceleration towards online transactions and a weaker Australian dollar for the jump in earnings.
The online marketplace also reported rapidly expanding profit margins with a large proportion of the company’s costs being fixed.
The solid profit results acted as a springboard for the Redbubble share price for the remainder of 2020.
After releasing its results in August, shares in Redbubble surged to an all-time high of $7.35 in late January.
