From April 2023 your council tax will rise by up to 5%, but there are a couple of things that may help cut your bills
Udemy, Inc. (NASDAQ:UDMY) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 14% in the last month. But in truth the last year hasn’t been good for the share price. After all, the share price is down 50% in the last year, significantly under-performing the market.
Now let’s have a look at the company’s fundamentals, and see if the long term shareholder return has matched the performance of the underlying business.

Because Udemy made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. When a company doesn’t make profits, we’d generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
In the last year Udemy saw its revenue grow by 22%. That’s definitely a respectable growth rate. Unfortunately that wasn’t good enough to stop the share price dropping 50%. You might even wonder if the share price was previously over-hyped. However, that’s in the past now, and it’s the future that matters most.

Udemy is well known by investors, and plenty of clever analysts have tried to predict the future profit levels. Given we have quite a good number of analyst forecasts, it might be well worth checking out this free chart depicting consensus estimates.
Udemy shareholders are down 50% for the year, even worse than the market loss of 20%. That’s disappointing, but it’s worth keeping in mind that the market-wide selling wouldn’t have helped. With the stock down 2.0% over the last three months, the market doesn’t seem to believe that the company has solved all its problems. Given the relatively short history of this stock, we’d remain pretty wary until we see some strong business performance. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. Even so, be aware that Udemy is showing 2 warning signs in our investment analysis , you should know about…

MADRID (Reuters) -Two top Spanish bankers on Tuesday said Spain's mortgage relief plan could lead to an increase in bad debt provisions and weigh on banks' capital reserves. The Spanish government and the country's banks on Monday reached an agreement in principle on mortgage relief measures, such as extending loan repayments, for more than 1 million vulnerable households and on help for middle-class families. "Some of the measures have an impact on the provisions, as it cannot be otherwise, as soon as an extension (is agreed) there are always elements that have an impact on the provisions," Santander CEO Jose Antonio Alvarez told reporters on the sidelines of a financial event.
