13:27 EDTAOLEarnings Preview: Yahoo expected to unveil turnaround plan with Q3 results
Yahoo (YHOO) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, October 21 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Yahoo is a digital media company that provides properties and services such as Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! News. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 30c on revenue of $1.04B. The consensus range is 18c-38c for EPS, and $1.02B-$1.06B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Yahoo reported Q2 EPS 37c against estimates of 38c on revenue ex-tac of $1.04B against estimates of $1.08B. It reported Q2 price-per-ad was down 24%, Q2 Display revenue down 7% and Search revenue up 6%. The company gave Q3 revenue ex-tac guidance of $1.02B-$1.06B. After releasing its Q2 results, CEO Marissa Mayer said the company was "not satisfied" with the results, with display remaining an area of investment and transition. NEWS: In the past quarter, Alibaba (BABA) opened to the larges IPO in U.S. history. The Wall Street Journal reported that Yahoo's core business was cut in half to $6.8B after Alibaba's first day of trading. Yahoo made $5.1B in cash from the sale of shares in Alibaba's IPO and its remaining stake is valued at about $23.4B.In late September, activist investor Starboard Value urged Yahoo to explore a strategic combination with AOL (AOL), believing a merger could create synergies of up to $1B. CEO Marissa Mayer is expected to unveil her turnaround plan at the earnings call today that could include cost-cutting efforts and its M&A strategy, according to the Wall Street Journal. Yahoo also confirmed that a security breach in Q3 compromised servers, but the hack did not disclose consumer data. The company acquired several companies in past few months, including Flurry, Zofari, ClarityRay, Luminate, and Bookdpad. A WSJ reports also said the company is in talks to invest in Snapchat. STREET RESEARCH: Following the Alibaba IPO, Yahoo was downgraded at Bernstein, BofA/Merrill and RBC Capital because it was unclear whether Yahoo's stock can advance meaningfully and the company was no longer the best way to gain Alibaba exposure. RBC Capital said the risk/reward is less attractive, and it does not see a turnaround in Yahoo's core fundamentals. BGC Financial, however, upgraded the company and said the company's remaining assets should get monetized in a more tax efficient manner. PRICE ACTION: Yahoo shares have risen $4.29, or more than 12%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Tuesday midday trading ahead of Q3 report, Yahoo shares are trading up nearly 2%.
