ASX 200 tech shares are having a tough time on the market today.
Let’s take a look at what could be impacting ASX 200 tech shares.
ASX tech shares fall
ASX 200 tech shares Block Inc (ASX: SQ2) and Xero Limited (ASX: XRO) are falling 6.1% and 2.2% respectively today. Meanwhile, WiseTech Global Ltd (ASX: WTC) is down 2.3% and TechnologyOne Ltd (ASX: TNE) has shed 1.8%.
ASX technology shares could be reacting to news from the United States. Technology shares on the ASX often follow the trends of US counterparts.
The Snap Inc (NYSE: SNAP) share price has plunged more than 31% in after-hours trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
In a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Snapchat advised it would likely miss its revenue and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) targets.
Since we issued guidance on April 21, 2022, the macroeconomic environment has deteriorated further and faster than anticipated. As a result, we believe it is likely that we will report revenue and adjusted EBITDA below the low end of our Q2 2022 guidance range.
This news appeared to impact overall sentiment in the sector, with many of Snap’s peers falling after hours, as the CNBC noted.
Nasdaq Futures are falling 1.30% at the time of writing. Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ: FB) shares plunged 7% in after-hours trading, while Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) shares dropped 3.72%, Pinterest Inc (NYSE: PINS) fell nearly 12% and Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ: TTD) slid nearly 9%.
Closer to home, TechnologyOne shares plunged nearly 5% in earlier trade before recovering slightly to the current share price of $10.22. As my Foolish colleague James reported today, the ASX 200 tech share reported strong first-half growth. Total revenue jumped 19% to $172.5 million, while profit after tax leapt 18% to $33.2 million.
