Dicker Data shares have had a difficult past couple of months.
The post The Dicker Data share price is trading at YTD lows. Here’s why appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Dicker Data Ltd (ASX: DDR) share price tumbled to a year-to-date low of $10.87 yesterday before climbing back up.
Widespread turmoil across the ASXÂ on the back of Mondayâs heavy losses on Wall Street sent investors packing.
Shares in the hardware, software and cloud distributor defied the sell-off to finish 0.61% higher to $11.57. However, when factoring in the past month, its shares have fallen 8%.
For context, the S&P/ASX 200 Index ended the day down 3.55% to 6,686 points.
Letâs take a look at whatâs weighing on Dicker Data shares in recent memory.
Whatâs driving Dicker Data shares lower?
A number of factors outside the companyâs control have led the Dicker Data share price to sink since 24 March.
Russiaâs attack on Ukraine continued to spook international markets as sanctions were handed down on the Kremlin.
Subsequently, oil and gas prices rose and global markets began to tank as this would stall worldwide economic growth.
While this didnât have anything to do with Dicker Data directly, its shares werenât spared, falling to $12.11 on 9 May.
TheÂ S&P/ASX All Technology IndexÂ (ASX: XTX) is down 7% in a month, and 36% for the current calendar year.
While Dicker Data reported strong growth in its first-quarter update on 11 May, this hasnât been enough to stem the bloodshed.
If the ASX plunges further, itâs most likely that the IT distributorâs shares will follow suit.
