Alibaba Q4 Earnings Preview: What Can Investors Expect?

Alibaba Q4 Earnings Preview: What Can Investors Expect?

Alibaba (BABA: NYE) investors are gearing up for the company’s Q4 earnings release scheduled for tomorrow, May 14th. Let’s delve into what analysts’ predictions hold for Alibaba’s stock price.

 

Expected Q4 Earnings of Alibaba: 

Analysts anticipate Alibaba to report revenue of $30.48 billion in Q4, which is a modest increase compared to the $30.32 billion reported in the same quarter last year. While Alibaba’s focus on competitive pricing might boost sales volume, intense competition in the e-commerce sector and the company’s decision to scale back on certain low-margin cloud contracts are likely to dampen revenue growth in the near future.

Analysts also predict that the company’s profit will be negatively impacted by its pricing strategies. Wall Street expects Alibaba to report earnings per share (EPS) of $1.42 in Q4, representing a roughly 4% decline from the EPS of $1.48 reported in the previous year’s corresponding quarter.

Stock Target Advisor’s analysis presents Alibaba’s stock with a “Buy” rating. This is attributed to factors such as low volatility, commendable cash and free cash flow, superior return on assets, a high market capitalization, and impressive return on equity.
