ANGI Homeservices (ANGI - Free Report) is set to report third-quarter 2018 results on Nov 7.
In the last reported quarter, ANGI reported earnings of 5 cents that beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4 cents. Revenues of $294.8 million beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $294 million and jumped 63% year over year.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings has remained steady at 9 cents over the past seven days. The consensus mark for revenues currently stands at $296.5 million, reflecting year-over-year growth of 63.2%.
Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement.
Key Factors to Watch Out
ANGI is expected to benefit from continuing product innovation. The company is benefiting from the synergies ($100 million in full year 2018) associated with the merger of Angie’s List and Homeservices.
Moreover, strength in Marketplace revenues is a major driver. In the last reported quarter, Marketplace revenues jumped 31% from the year-ago quarter. The strong growth was driven by higher Marketplace service requests from homeowners, which increased 30% to 6.8 million.
We also expect strong momentum in advertising revenues to continue in the to-be-reported quarter. Further, international expansion is expected to drive top-line growth.
