On Tuesday, Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) shares plummeted nearly 9% after announcing its most recent quarterly results. The company reported its fiscal third-quarter revenue and earnings before markets opened, beating analyst expectations on revenue. It also raised its FY2021 revenue growth guidance to 40% from 30% previously, surpassing Street estimates.

Palantir posted FQ3 non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.04 in line with expectations. On the other hand, its GAAP EPS of -$0.05 outperformed the estimate of -$0.08, while revenue for the quarter spiked by 35.5% from the same quarter a year ago to $392 million, $5.54 million ahead of estimates.

Palantir now expects a full-year 2021 revenue of about $1.527 billion, surpassing the consensus Street forecast of $1.51 billion.
