C3.ai (NYSE: AI ), a prominent player in the Computers - IT Services industry, experienced a dip in its share price earlier this week. The company's shares fell by 1.85%, closing at $24.39, trailing behind the gains of S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq . However, compared to the broader Computer and Technology sector and the S&P 500's losses, C3.ai managed to outperform with a smaller month-long depreciation of only 2.63%.

Despite the recent drop in share price, the company is expected to see a 19.45% increase in quarterly revenue, amounting to $74.55 million. This is in contrast to consensus estimates which anticipate a year-over-year earnings decline of 72.73% for the firm, equivalent to -$0.19 per share.

For the full year, estimates suggest earnings per share will be -$0.42 with total revenue reaching $307.99 million, marking a 15.44% increase from last year's figures.
