Why Is C3.ai (AI) Stock Down 20% Today?

C3.ai (NYSE:AI) stock is falling on Thursday following the release of the AI company’s earnings report for its fiscal fourth quarter of 2023.

However, it’s not earnings results that are dropping the stock, but rather its latest outlook. In the company’s report, it highlights an expected net loss of $25 million to $30 million alongside revenue of $70 million to $72.5 million. Wall Street’s estimate for the quarter includes revenue of $71.67 million.
