User Growth

Despite missing revenue estimates, Pinterest saw a growth in monthly active users. The platform's user base increased by 11% from the previous year, reaching a total of 498 million active users.

Future Outlook

Pinterest aims to continue its momentum in the coming year. Chief Executive Bill Ready stated that recent changes within the company have enhanced its strength and efficiency, positioning it for further success in 2024.

Q1 Forecast

For the first quarter of 2024, Pinterest forecasts revenue between $690 million and $705 million. However, analysts polled by FactSet had anticipated a higher figure of $702.3 million.
