Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of Informatica (Nasdaq: INFA ) rose more than 10% today after the company reported earnings.
So what: Revenue fell slightly to $190.5 million compared with a year ago, in line with what analysts had expected. The company reported net income of $20.1 million, or $0.29 per share on an adjusted basis, which was a penny ahead of expectations.
Now what: Informatica has beaten expectations each of the last four quarters, and this quarter the numbers didn't beat expectations by much. I'm looking more at the falling revenue as a red flag right now, and considering the company's 2012 P/E ratio of 22, I think the stock is expensive. I'd like to see more value before jumping on this bounce or revenue growth at the very least.
