U.S. stock futures were mixed this morning, with the Dow futures trading almost flat on Wednesday.

The investment community woke to a chilly morning as shares of Snap Inc. plummeted in today’s pre-market trading following the release of its fourth-quarter results.

Snap’s fourth-quarter revenue inched up 5% year-over-year to $1.361 billion, a slight miss on the consensus estimate of $1.38 billion. The company did manage to report quarterly adjusted earnings of 8 cents per share, outstripping analyst estimates of 6 cents per share.

Despite the upbeat earnings, Snap’s guidance for the first-quarter revenue of $1.095 billion to $1.135 billion, vis-à-vis estimates of $1.12 billion, served as a wet blanket. The first-quarter adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between negative $55 million and negative $99 million, a revelation that seemed to significantly impact shares after hours.

Snap shares took a beating, dipping 31.3% to $11.99 in pre-market trading.

The pain was widespread as other major stocks suffered losses in today’s pre-market trading session.
