Silvergate Stock: Analysts Brace for Volatile Q4 Earnings

Silvergate Stock

As cryptocurrency bank Silvergate (SI:NYE) prepares to release its fourth-quarter 2022 earnings results on January 17, analysts are approaching the report with caution. In the lead-up to the earnings release, Silvergate stock has seen a number of downgrades and cautious takes, with a consensus rating of Hold based on three Buys, five Holds, and two Sells.

For the fourth quarter, analysts are forecasting earnings of $0.68 per share, a 3% year-over-year increase. However, there are concerns about the company’s deposit-funding decline, which is expected to have had a negative impact on the bottom line for the quarter.

Additionally, the FTX crash in early November led to regulatory scrutiny for crypto banks like Silvergate, creating an overhang for the company in the fourth quarter.

Another factor that may have contributed to the company’s Q4 performance is the layoffs of around 200 workers, which would have resulted in costs associated with the firings, along with securities losses and impairment charges. These actions are expected to have resulted in significant impairment charges in Q4.

Despite the cautious outlook, Silvergate stock price is expected to increase 23.8% over the next 12 months to $16.80. However, it is important to note that this prediction is based on analysts’ estimates and not a guarantee of future performance.
