Earnings Spotlight: Virgin Galactic (SPCE, $37.26) – This space tourism company founded by billionaire Richard Branson went public in late October 2019 to modest fanfare, but has caught Wall Street’s attention following a wave of trader interest that has sent its stock price tripling since the beginning of 2020. SPCE shares also have caught the eye of a growing sleuth of bears that are increasingly “short selling” the stock. The company’s quarterly report, due out after the Feb. 25 closing bell, will give investors new to this story a chance to learn more about its operations and expectations – and to watch a potentially massive move in the stock, given how it has been trading of late. The numbers themselves likely won’t impress. Wall Street is looking for a loss of 19 cents per share on $1.78 million in revenues. Virgin Galactic does have more than 600 reservations, at either $200,000 or $250,000 a pop – but all of those were taken before 2014, when the company stopped selling tickets following a pilot’s death in a test flight. SPCE expects to reopen ticket sales, and hopes to launch commercial flights, this year.

Earnings Spotlight: Lowe’s (LOW, $126.57) – Lowe’s has built up a nice head of steam heading into its Feb. 26 earnings report, due out ahead of the market’s open. The company has raced ahead by 28%, beating the S&P 500 by 12 percentage points. LOW picked up momentum in August, when the DIY retailer announced better-than-expected second-quarter revenues, profits and same-store sales (or “comps,” an important retail metric measuring sales generated in stores open at least 12 months). Its Q3 report was more of a mixed bag that saw profits top again but revenues and comps miss estimates. Several analysts have been raising their price targets on LOW shares ahead of its Q4 report, including Oppenheimer’s Brian Nagel (Buy-equivalent Outperform, from $145 per share to $165) and Wells Fargo’s Zachary Fadem (Buy-equivalent Overweight, from $135 per share to $140). As a group, the analyst community is looking for revenues of $16.17 billion (+3.3% year-over-year) and profits of 91 cents per share (+13.8%).

Earnings Spotlight: Square (SQ, $85.70) – The payments processor is having a red-hot 2020, surging 36% so far in the young year. Wall Street has been optimistic on several fronts: about its Cash App, surging subscription and services revenues and investments in new technologies such as multisource transaction processing, for which it just received patent approval. Stephens analyst Brett Huff upgraded SQ shares from Equalweight to Overweight thanks to pricing changes he deemed a “better setup.” Deutsche Bank’s Bryan Keane (Buy) believes Square’s adjusted organic revenue growth could hit 38% in fiscal 2020, versus current guidance in the low 30s. Square, which reports after the Feb. 26 close, is expected to grow sales 27.7% year-over-year to $593.07 million, generating a 50% pop in profits to 21 cents per share.

Earnings Spotlight: Teladoc Health (TDOC, $115.90) – Teladoc Health, which facilitates video-conferenced doctor’s visits, has looked just like Square this year, posting a 37% gain less than two months into 2020. The company currently boasts a nearly 75% market share in the telehealth space, and it expects rampant growth in digital visits. Indeed, when Teladoc reported Q3 earnings in October, it upgraded its estimates for revenues, adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and visits. Then in January, the company announced it would acquire InTouch Health, which provides telehealth solutions for hospitals and medical systems, for $450 million in stock and $150 million in cash. InTouch Health expected to generate $80 million in revenues for full-year 2019. As for its earnings? TDOC reports after the Feb. 26 close. The pros expect a loss of 33 cents per share, which would be 5.7% lower than in the year-ago period, on revenues of $152.95 million (+24.6%).
