AppLovin stock up after Q1 report

AppLovin's official buy point of 88.50 is at a more than two-year high. It reached that price after the Palo Alto, California-based company reported first-quarter results on May 8.

AppLovin smashed Wall Street targets for the quarter ending in March and gave higher guidance for the current period. It earned 67 cents a share, versus a loss of a penny a share a year earlier. Sales rose 48 percent to $1.06 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected Q1 earnings of 57 cents on sales of $974 million.

For the current quarter, AppLovin forecast revenue of $1.06 billion to $1.08 billion. The $1.07 billion midpoint was above Wall Street's second-quarter target of $1.01 billion.

AppLovin's software platform enables app developers to market, monetize and analyze their apps. The company also makes mobile games such as “Bingo Story,” “Game of War” and “Solitaire Cruise.”

Axon 2.0 is ahead of the competition.

Haney says AppLovin's Axon 2.0 has proven its value to users.

“Over the past year, AppLovin's release of Axon 2.0 has significantly increased the performance of mobile app advertisers,” he said. “Perhaps the most impressive metric is the 87% year-over-year increase in app install volume in Q1, indicating that AppLovin's platform is nearly twice as effective as it was a year ago.”

AppLovin launched Axon 2.0 in early 2023. The ad engine leverages predictive modeling to help mobile game advertisers buy the right ad impression at the right price.

“We believe Axon 2.0's AI-based ad platform is increasing content share,” said Haney.

AppLovin executives say the company's ongoing improvements to Axon 2.0 “should create a sustainable advantage that would take significant time and resources for any competitor to catch up,” Haney said.
