Spotify suffered its worst day since going public last month — closing nearly 6 percent down the day after its first earnings report.

Shares closed at $160.38 after shedding as much as 11 percent Thursday.

The music streaming service reported better-than-expected earnings but seemed to lose investors on lighter guidance.

Spotify went public last month with its unconventional direct listing, offering the public its first look at the company's subscriber base and ad revenue.

It cautioned Wednesday during the earnings report that growth could slow in subsequent quarters.
