‘Buy now, pay later’ will soon affect your credit score in the UK

Currently, most buy now, pay later services don't impact a person's credit score. That's now set to change in the U.K.

Chegg — Shares tumbled nearly 30% after the textbook company reported weak full-year guidance despite exceeding earnings expectations. In its most recent quarter, Chegg reported earnings of 32 cents per share on revenues of $202 million. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting earnings of 24 cents per share on revenues of $201 million.

 

Clorox — Clorox’s stock price dipped about 1.9% after the maker of household products cut its full-year gross margin outlook on inflationary concerns. Clorox otherwise topped earnings expectations after reporting earnings of $1.31 per share on revenues of $1.81 billion. The company was expected to earn 97 cents per share on revenues of $1.79 billion, according to consensus estimates from Refinitiv.

Devon Energy — Shares jumped more than 2% after the company announced a dividend and buyback hike.

Avis Budget Group — The car company’s stock price soared nearly 7% after Avis Budget’s quarterly results surpassed analysts’ expectations.

Analysts polled by Refinitiv were forecasting earnings of $3.45 per share on revenues of $2.08 billion.
