United Investment Limited - Paychex Stock Falls as Business Pressures Lower Revenue

Paychex (PAYX) was the S&P 500's worst-performing stock on Thursday after the payroll services provider missed revenue projections due to macroeconomic factors squeezing demand.
CENTRAL, Hong Kong - Dec. 26, 2023 - PRLog -- With a year-on-year gain of 5.7%, revenue reached $1.26 billion, surpassing the forecasts of experts who had anticipated $1.27 billion. At $1.08 per share, earnings per share (EPS) were more than what was anticipated.

For the most part, increased labor and insurance costs, as well as investments in technology, sales, and marketing, were the primary contributors to the rise in expenses, which totaled $751.7 million, or a 5% increase over the previous year.

The chief executive officer of the company, John Gibson, said that small and medium-sized businesses "continue to face challenges in both the cost of and access to growth capital; as well as finding quality talent in the current labor market."
