New York Times’ stock (NYSE: NYT), a diversified media company that includes newspapers, internet businesses, television, and radio stations, has declined by almost 11% over the last ten trading days (two weeks) and currently stands at around $48.

The company’s stock fell despite posting double-digit revenue gains against 2020 pandemic comparisons in Q3 and logging particularly strong subscription numbers even as its ad business grew into a bigger contributor. The company’s digital-only subscriptions came in ahead of expectations of 7.39 million, landing at 7.59 million, after its best-ever quarter for digital subs.
