Earnings Calendar Highlights


Earnings Spotlight: Bank of America (BAC) – Bank of America will kick off a full week of earnings bright and early April 13 before the opening bell. While shares still have had a market-beating past year of trading, up 32% versus 13% for the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index, shares have declined a couple of percent amid the choppy broader-market trading of 2018. Analysts are expecting a strong quarter from BofA, which should turn $23.1 billion in revenues (+2.7% year-over-year) into 59 cents of per-share profits (+43.9%). One area to watch for potential weakness: investment banking, which likely suffered during an a volatile first quarter that many market participants expected to be a continuation of 2017’s unchecked bull run.

Earnings Spotlight: Netflix (NFLX) – Netflix has some pressure to perform as it enters its first-quarter earnings report, due out after Monday’s close. That’s what happens when your stock has more than doubled in a year, including a 42% bump in the past three months alone. Wall Street certainly has high expectations, including 39.9% revenue growth to $3.7 billion, and a 60% pop in profits to 64 cents per share. Loop Capital is optimistic heading into the report, with analyst Alan Gould saying Netflix should top first-quarter subscriber-growth forecasts and has a $325 price target on shares.

Earnings Spotlight: General Electric (GE) – General Electric has been in freefall for more than a year now, with shares off 55% over the past 52 weeks amid a litany of issues, including wildly disappointing earnings, a cash crunch and a thick cut to its dividend. Cowen analyst Gautam Khanna sees even more difficulty ahead, projecting that the first-quarter report, due out before Friday’s opening bell, will include profits that fall short of the consensus expectation. Wall Street sees earnings dipping 42.9% to 12 cents per share, on a 1% drop in sales to $27.4 billion. Moreover, “We don’t believe the $0.48/year dividend is safe unless ‘contract assets’ convert to cash on a net basis, and/or the Power market rebounds sharply and soon.” GE also recently said it will restate results for 2016 and 2017 to fall in line with new accounting standards.
