Fluidigm Corporation (FLDM) Social Stream
Featured Post From StockTwits About FLDM
$FLDM I just spent a few minutes examining biomedical equipment manufacturer PACB to see how its Q2 performance compared to FLDM.ange100, published August 6, 2021
-$30.6 million in revenues
-$41 million net loss
-Ballpark 200 million shares at $35 per share = $7 billion market cap
-$41 million net loss divided by 200 million shares = net loss of (0.205) per share
-stock soared after those numbers were reported
-$31 million in revenues
-$17 million net loss
-Ballpark 75 million shares at $6.50 per share = $487.5 million market cap
-$17 million net loss divided by 75 million shares = net loss of (0.226) per share
So PACB, with its $7 BILLION market cap compared to Fluidigm's $487.5 MILLION market cap, had less revenues but a FAR greater net loss. Their net loss PER SHARE looks to be a tiny bit better, but only because that net loss is spread over almost three times as many shares. As will occur if they ever report a gain.
And I personally don't believe PACB's prospects are nearly as good as FLDM's.
