Square Reports Strong Growth and Shrinking Losses in Q2 (Aug 2, 2017)
Square Announces Q4 2016 Financial Results (Feb 22, 2017)
Square’s results were much better than those for Jack Dorsey’s other company, Twitter, earlier this month. All the important numbers are heading in the right direction, with revenue growth strong year on year, margins steadily improving and heading towards breakeven, the Starbucks business in the rearview mirror, and new more profitable businesses ramping up nicely. I tweeted quite a few of my Square charts earlier in this thread following release of the results – overall, there’s a lot to like here, and the long-term challenge continues to be driving scale while leveraging the payment processing business to drive new, higher margin revenue.
