DoorDash lost money in Q2 but investors are still happy

DoorDash Inc (NYSE: DASH) is up 15% in extended trading on Thursday even though the food delivery company reported a wider-than-expected loss for its fiscal second quarter.

Why is DoorDash stock up after the bell?

Investors are focusing on record orders and strong top-line growth in the face of a tough macro environment. DoorDash expects a slowdown in consumer spending in the balance of its current financial year but says it’s well-positioned to withstand such a softening.

Wall Street has a consensus “overweight” rating on DoorDash stock that’s down roughly 35% versus the start of 2022.
