Uber (NYSE:UBER) earnings for the ride-sharing service’s fourth quarter of 2019 have UBER stock heading higher after markets closed Thursday. That’s due to its diluted losses-per share of -64 cents, which is better than Wall Street’s estimate of -67 cents per share. Revenue of $4.07 billion also comes in above analysts’ estimates of $4.06 billion.
