Investors are reacting negatively to the Chewy earnings report today as the company failed to meet Wall Street’s estimates. That includes diluted losses per share of 4 cents, which missed analysts’ estimates of -2 cents. However, that loss per share was half of what it was in the previous year.

Unfortunately, the company’s revenue of $2.16 billion also wasn’t enough to satisfy holders of CHWY stock today. This is also below analysts’ estimates of $2.2 billion. Even if it is a 26.8% year-over-year increase.

Chewy CEO Sumit Singh and CFO Mario Marte said the following in a letter to shareholders.

“Out-of-stock levels remained elevated in the second quarter, but they improved modestly versus the first quarter, resulting in a smaller drag on net sales in the second quarter. This is the result of supply chain conditions improving in some areas as certain vendors reduce backlogs. However, other areas like wet dog food are still being affected by industry-wide production capacity limitations.”

CHWY stock is seeing the effects of today’s earnings report with heavy trading of the shares. As of this writing, more than 8 million shares of the stock have changed hands. To put this in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 3.1 million shares.

CHWY stock was down 7.7% as of Thursday afternoon and is down 9.2% since the start of the year.
