Read MoreHide Full Article

360 DigiTech, Inc. (QFIN - Free Report) will report first-quarter 2022 results on May 24 after the bell.

The company has had an impressive earnings history, having surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all of the past four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 33.9%, on average.

Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $633.4 million, indicating an increase of 15.3% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

The top line is expected to have benefited from strong demand for consumer credit and growth in loan facilitation volume under its capital-light model. Net revenues from Credit Driven Services, and net revenues from Platform services are anticipated to have increased year over year in the quarter.

The consensus mark for the bottom line is pegged at $1.1 per share, indicating 17.9% year-over-year decline. The bottom line is expected to have been negatively impacted by an increase in operating expenses.
