Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) stock is sliding lower on Tuesday after the telecommunications company released its earnings report for the third quarter of 2023.

The reason ERIC stock is slipping today is the company’s revenue of 64.5 billion SEK (or $5.91 billion). That comes in below the roughly 66.6 billion SEK (or $6.11 billion) that Wall Street was expecting for the period. It’s also worth mentioning that revenue decreased 5% year-over-year (YOY).

Börje Ekholm, President and CEO of Ericsson, said the following about its results:

“In a challenging operating environment, Ericsson delivered third quarter results in line with our guidance. Consistent with the rest of our industry, we expect the macroeconomic uncertainty to persist into 2024, which impacts our customers’ investment ability. We are addressing these challenges with a focus on elements within our control, namely cost management and operational efficiency.”

What’s Next for ERIC Stock?

Investors in ERIC stock may continue to see red for the upcoming quarters as the company navigates a weak market. Even so, Ericsson said that it’s “convinced that the recovery will come.” This has it working to become a more profitable company in anticipation of that recovery.

ERIC stock is down 3.6% as of Tuesday morning and was down 19.9% year-to-date (YTD) as of yesterday’s close.
