Here is a look at the Zenger News Stock Whisper Index for the week of Aug. 5, 2023.
Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE: TUP): The well-known consumer products company appears in the Stock Whisper Index once again. Shares of Tupperware exploded higher Thursday after market close when the company announced a debt restructuring agreement. The deal will provide a reduction and reallocation of debt. Tupperware has been moving up the Fintel short squeeze leaderboard, ranking 52nd to start the week. Data shows 25.1% of the float short and a cost to borrow of 75.5%. The company is expected to report second quarter financial results in the coming weeks, which could make shares more volatile.
Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP): The specialty biopharmaceutical company saw shares surge earlier this week after reporting it sold land, building and assets in an SEC filing. The company also announced a collaboration related to an intranasal naloxone, which is comparable to Narcan. Shares saw a drop after the company announced a public pricing of 5.93 million units at $1.35 each.
T-Stamp Inc (NASDAQ: IDAI): A global provider of AI-powered identity services, Trust Stamp saw several news items released during the week that made shares highly volatile for the week. The company announced that its privacy-first biometric technology is getting implemented with seven additional financial institutions.
“We are encouraged by the growing demand for our privacy-first technology from enterprises of all sizes across the banking industry. The regulatory environment governing the banking and biometric sectors continues to evolve,” said Trust Stamp President Andrew Gowasack.
Gowasack said the company is on pace to have 45 to 50 financial institutions using its biometrics product by the end of 2023.
Trust Stamp also received a patent related to AI-powered technology.
Traeger Inc (NYSE: COOK): The grilling and cooking company saw shares widely followed this week as second quarter financial results were reported. The company saw revenue of $171.5 million, which was down 14% year-over-year. Traeger improved on its net loss and grew adjusted EBITDA, both of which were cheered by investors. The company also raised its revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance for the full year.
“I am pleased with the significant progress we have made in improving our financial positioning over the last several quarters. Specifically, our efforts to rightsize both balance sheet and channel inventories have allowed us to enter the second half of the year in a substantially more balanced position. Given our better than anticipated results for the first half of the year, today we are increasing our revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance for Fiscal 2023,” said Traeger CEO Jeremy Andrus.
Driven Brands Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: DRVN): The automotive services company saw shares drop after reporting second quarter financial results. Second quarter revenue was up 19% year-over-year and same-store sales were up 8% year-over-year. The company lowered its full-year guidance due to weakness in its car wash and auto glass segments. Shares are down over 40% in the last month, with multiple analysts lowering their price targets after the quarterly results and guidance.
