This comes after the company reported adjusted diluted earnings per share of -23 cents and revenue of $80.68 million. For comparison, Wall Street was looking for adjusted EPS of -16 cents alongside revenue of $76.13 million.

While those results are a bit mixed, investors are reacting well to the company’s guidance for the fiscal full year of 2023. The electric vehicle (EV) charging company is expecting revenue for the year to range from $450 million to $500 million. That’s looking good next to analysts’ estimate of $378.74 million.

That may be good enough for traders, but let’s check out what experts have to say about CHPT stock following its Q4 earnings report below!
