Today's video focuses on Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK), recent news affecting the company, and its earnings report released on Nov. 23. Here are some highlights from the video.

  1. Autodesk reported $1.13 billion in revenue, up 18% year over year (YoY), and a free cash flow of $257 million. Autodesk saw double-digit growth in all of its product solutions and in all of the geographic regions it operates in. 
  2. Autodesk makes most of its money from yearly subscriptions. Still, the hefty price of the annual service pushes away potential customers who do not need to use Autodesk solutions every day. In September, Autodesk announced a new consumption model, opening the door to new customers. 
  3. Management mentioned that supply chain issues are significant headwinds for Autodesk. Supply chain issues are causing a delay in building materials, forcing delays in construction projects and new projects being signed, reducing the short-term needs of Autodesk solutions.
