Earnings Calendar Highlights
Earnings Spotlight: Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) – Monness Crespi analyst Brian White may have set the tone for Alphabet’s Monday evening first-quarter earnings report with a recent bullish outlook. “We believe Alphabet is attractive heading into next week’s report,” says White, who reiterated his “Buy” rating and sees 18% upside with a price target of $1,280. White expects revenues of $30.26 billion and earnings of $9.34 per share – the former less optimistic than the consensus estimate of $30.31 billion, but the latter better than the $9.31-per-share projection. Beats on either front might give a little life to GOOGL shares, which have lost about 2% so far this year.

Earnings Spotlight: Facebook (FB) – Facebook may be the most captivating earnings report of the entire Q1 season. For the past month or so, the company has been embroiled in a scandal over a political analytics firm gaining access to data on millions of users – one that led to CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifying in front of Congress as Washington tries to decide whether it will try to slap restrictions on Facebook and other mass gatherers of data. While no such restrictions have come yet, we may start to see whether the scandal affected Facebook’s user numbers. Jefferies analyst Brent Thill seems unconcerned, saying “a survey with our partners in the data world suggests that there’s really been no major deterioration to users” and actually calls the stock a “great opportunity,” though it did lower full-year earnings estimates from $9 per share to $8.58 per share. The company reports Q1 numbers after Wednesday’s bell, and analysts expect a 30.8% jump in quarterly profits to $1.36 per share, on 42.1% revenue growth to $11.4 billion.
Earnings Spotlight: Twitter (TWTR) – Long beleaguered social platform Twitter for once has the upper hand on larger rival Facebook. Rather than being dogged by data scandals, Twitter has been riding the momentum from its first-ever quarterly profit, which has propelled its stock to 32% gains in 2018 versus a slightly down market and 8% declines for FB. Analysts expect another quarter of profits, at least on a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) basis, with the pros projecting 11 cents per share in earnings, up from 7 cents per share on an adjusted basis last year. The top line is expected to grow 10.4% to $605.3 million. Investors looking for a sign of optimism can find it from MKM Partners’ Rob Sanderson, who on Friday upgraded TWTR to “Buy” from “Neutral,” saying “it increasingly appears that Twitter is here to stay” thanks to its importance as a go-to news source. The company reports Wednesday evening.
