13:12 EDTVODEarnings Preview: AT&T sentiment mixed ahead of Q1 report
AT&T (T) is expected to report Q1 earnings after the market close on Tuesday, April 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. AT&T is a global telecommunications company offering wireless and long distance services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 70c on revenue of $32.41B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-74c on revenue of $31.96B-$33.24B. LAST QUARTER: AT&T reported Q4 adjusted EPS of 53c against estimates for 50c, on revenue of $33.2B against estimates for $33.06B. Q4 postpaid churn was reported at 1.11%. AT&T reported the following in Q4: more than 500,000 branded smartphone net adds, including postpaid and prepaid; wireless operating income $1.4B; total postpaid ARPU up 2.1%; net increase in total wireless subscribers 809,000; connected device adds 398,000. On its Q4 earnings report, the company forecast FY14 adjusted EPS growth in the mid-single digits compared to a consensus at the time of $2.67. It expected FY14 revenue growth of 2%-3%, compared to the then consensus of $131.12B. On March 31, the board of AT&T authorized the repurchase of up to 300M shares, representing approximately 6% of AT&T common shares outstanding, with no expiration date. Due to the large share buyback program, The New York times noted that AT&T would be less likely to make a bid for Vodafone (VOD), something that had been speculated throughout the quarter. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mixed in the weeks leading up to AT&T's Q1 earnings report. On February 11, Drexel Hamilton initiated AT&T with a Buy rating and price target of $40. On March 25, HSBC downgraded AT&T to Neutral from Overweight based on expectations for increased industry price competition and a peak margin expansion. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $35 from $39. PRICE ACTION: AT&Ts shares are up approximately 6% since the company's Q4 report, but are down about 6% from year ago levels. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q1 report, AT&Ts shares are trading near the flat line.
