FMC stock
skidded 16% as the company posted adjusted earnings of $1.07 a share, a drop of 55%, on a 29% drop in revenue to $1.15 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet expected earnings of $1.08 per share on revenue of $1.24 billion.

The company forecast 2024 earnings between $3.23 and $4.41 per share on revenue between $4.5 billion and $4.7 billion in what calls a “transition year.” Analysts expected earnings of $4.33 on revenue of $4.66 billion.
