Digital Turbine (NASDAQ:APPS) stock is rising on Thursday as investors react to the company’s earnings report for its fiscal second quarter of 2023.

The good news for APPS stock starts with the company’s adjusted earnings per share of 34 cents. That just edges past Wall Street’s estimate of 33 cents for the quarter. Even if it’s down from the 44 cents per share reported in fiscal Q2 2022.

Unfortunately, Digital Turbine’s revenue of $174.86 million didn’t do as well. It just missed the $175.73 million that analysts were looking for in the period. It’s also down from the $188.57 million reported during the same time last year.

A Weak Outlook Can’t Keep APPS Stock Down Today

The company’s expectations for its fiscal third quarter of 2023 aren’t the best. That includes adjusted EPS ranging from 36 cents to 39 cents and revenue between $180 million and $190 million. For comparison, Wall Street is looking for an adjusted EPS of 38 cents on revenue of $203.37 million.

No matter the case, heavy trading is pushing shares of APSS stock higher today. As of this writing, nearly 4 million shares of the stock have changed hands. That’s already above its daily average trading volume of about 2.3 million shares.

APPS stock is up 43.9% as of Thursday morning but is still down 75.1% since the start of the year.
