Appen (ASX:APX) FY 2019 Results Analysis

Appen Ltd (ASX:APX) FY 2019 Half Year Results Analysis

On Thursday Appen (ASX: APX) reported its results for the first half of FY19 (the company has a December reporting year-end). The stock price moved violently in response, initially soaring 10% within the first hour of trading to almost $30 (within sight of the $32 all-time high set in late July), but from that point plunged 20% to below $24 and ended the day down 11% from its previous close. On Friday the share price rebounded 7% as the market digested the key takeaways, and the APX share price managed to record a 2% gain for the week despite the nausea-inducing rollercoaster ride.
