So what

Fastly stock plunged earlier this month after the company released disappointing second-quarter results. Revenue growth decelerated significantly during the quarter as the company faced a tough year-ago comparison and as an outage negatively impacted the quarter's financials.

The stock has been recovering since then, with shares regaining almost all of their post-earnings decline. Perhaps investors think the stock was oversold. After all, even after the stock's post-earnings recovery in recent trading days, shares are still down more than 50% this year.

Now what

Despite tough year-ago comparisons, Fastly still expects its top line to grow significantly this year. Its recent acquisition of security company Signal Sciences is expected to contribute to some of this growth.

Management guided for full-year revenue to be between $340 million and $350 million, up from 2020 revenue of $291 million.
