Cboe Global Markets, Inc. (CBOE - Free Report) is slated to report second-quarter 2021 results on Jul 30, before the opening bell. The company delivered an 10.07% earnings surprise in the last reported quarter.

Factors to Consider

CBOE Global’s second-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from multi-listed options and continued growth in recurring non-transaction revenues, as well as contribution from acquisitions.

Transaction fees and clearing fees are likely to have benefited from improved trading volumes in U.S cash equities, and multi list options. Its strong market position and a global reach with strength in its proprietary products, primarily SPX options, VIX options and VIX futures are likely to have provided an additional upside.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter transaction fees is pegged at $434 million.

Market data revenues are likely to have been aided by the Bats, MATCHNow , BIDS Trading, Hanweck and FT Options acquisitions, improved Cboe Information Solutions, and a comprehensive suite of data solutions, analytics and indices. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter market data fees and access fees is pegged at $62 million and $65 million, indicating growth of 5.1% and 16.1%, respectively, from the prior-year quarter reported figure.

CBOE Global’s reported mixed average daily volume (ADV) for the second quarter and June 2021. ADV of 12.1 million contracts per day was up 14.5% year over year in the second quarter due to solid performance in Options, partly offset by lower Futures volume. U.S. Equities Global Forex, and European Equities declined.  

Total contracts for the second quarter were 1.5 billion, up 13.6% year over year. Of this, Options improved 14% to 1.5 billion while Futures decreased 1.5% to 29.1 million. While Options ADV was 11.8 million, Futures ADV was 0.2 million.
