ZipRecruiter, Inc. (ZIP) shares rallied 11.3% in the last trading session to close at $17.04. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 17.7% loss over the past four weeks.

The company’s board of directors has announced $150 million increase in its share repurchase program. This is in addition to the previously announced share repurchase amount of $100 million. As of Jun 15, 2022, the company had nearly $6.6 million shares of its Class A common stock available for repurchases under its share repurchase program. Such shareholder-friendly moves indicate the company’s commitment to create value for shareholders and underline its confidence in its business. These initiatives not only instill investor confidence, but also positively impact the company’s earnings per share.

 

This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.06 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +110.9%. Revenues are expected to be $234.58 million, up 28.2% from the year-ago quarter.

And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions.
