Intuit Fiscal Q4 2023 Performance

Here are some of the key highlights from the latest fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report from Intuit: 

  • Q4 earnings per share of $1.65 vs. $1.44 expected 
  • Revenue of $2.71 billion vs. $2.41 billion same time last year 
  • 12% year-on-year increase in revenue 
  • FY 2024 earnings projection $16.17 to $16.47 vs. $15.96 expected 
  • FY 2024 revenue projection $15.890 billion to $16.105 billion vs. $15.97 billion expected 

Intuit beat analyst expectations for both revenue and earnings per share over its last fiscal fourth quarter. This is now the fourth quarter in a row in which Intuit has surpassed Wall Street's expectations on earnings per share.  

According to CEO Sasan Goodarze, the company's plans to become the "global AI-driven expert platform" ended its last fiscal year with strong momentum. Now the question is whether or not that growth can continue.  

The full-year guidance for 2024 beat analyst expectations but investors will want to see stable trends in each of Intuits' products. There was an 11% year-on-year decline in the revenue from its Credit Karma division due to macroeconomic factors in various sectors.  

As Intuit provides a range of accounting and tax software products to businesses, the health of the economy can influence its results and, therefore, its share price. Researching the economic environment is also important as a slowdown in the economy will affect business activity which could lead to cutting back on business-related products that Intuit provides.

An Example Trading Idea for the Intuit Stock Price

An example trading idea for the Intuit share price could be as follows:  

  • Buy the stock on a break above the post-earnings high at $522.00 to allow for volatility. 
  • Target just below the highest analyst price target of $615.00. 
  • Keep your risk small at a maximum of 5% of your total account.   
  • Time Line = 1 – 6 months  
  • If you buy 10 Intuit shares:  
  • If target is reached = $930.00 potential profit [($615.00 - $522.00) * 10 shares].   

Remember that markets go up and down and it is unlikely the share price will move up in a straight line. In fact, it may even go much further down before it rises, especially considering how sensitive financial software stocks can be to the business cycle.

Be sure to exercise good risk management and always know how much you could potentially lose on a trade and the risks involved, as well as the costs.
