Uber shares jump after first-quarter revenue beats expectations. Here’s what the experts have to say

Uber’s first quarter revenue beat expectations, sending its shares soaring. The company reported a revenue of $3.54 billion, up 14% from the same period last year. Analysts had expected revenue of $3.51 billion.

The strong performance was driven by the company’s core ride-hailing business, which saw revenue grow by 10% year-over-year. The company also saw growth in its food delivery, freight, and other businesses.

The strong performance was seen as a sign that Uber’s turnaround plan is working. The company has been focusing on improving its core ride-hailing business, while also expanding into new markets and services.
