Online pet food retailer Chewy CHWY was one of the big winners of the pandemic, but its latest earnings update disappointed investors and analysts. Even though revenue grew almost 27% over the year, $2.16 million was below expectations. The loss was $0.04 per share, compared with estimates of a loss $0.02.

The Q3 sales guidance was also light. Chewy projects revenue between $2.20 billion and $2.22 billion. Wall Street had expected sales of $2.23 trillion. CNBC spoke with CEO Sumit Singh, who said that the company was still optimistic about its business. He added that net sales per customer increased 13.5% to $404.

Although Chewy’s economic growth was expected to slow as the economy recovers, investors were caught off-guard by the rapid deceleration.

Zacks just published a Special Report on this rapidly-emerging trend and four tickers to help you take advantage. You may regret it in 2022 if you do not buy right away.
