3/3/23 (AI) jumps 29% on better-than-expected results for its fiscal third quarter. The provider of artificial intelligence software beat by 16 cents as revenues fell 4.4% to $66.67 million.

There is a growing consensus that the U.S. consumer is going to come under increasingly difficult-to-ignore pressure this year, and Costco will not be immune from the impact.
