Stock Analyst Expect DraftKings Revenue Loss
Leading analysts are forecasting a year-over-year earnings reduction on higher revenues, but the true test will lie in just how far off these estimates are.
Investors will look to key numbers, and should they come in at or just above last year’s marks, share prices are likely to see a sudden boost. Should they fall short of expectations, we could see DraftKings continue with their downward trend.
This reactionary move will likely have a short term impact, as gambling stock investors will be more inclined to respond to the presentation scheduled to follow the release.
DraftKings’ Investor Day presentation saw the operator make waves when they announced the highest North American iGaming valuation projection to date. The less-than-stellar financial reports took a backseat to the $67 billion industry value estimation, and the news sent share prices through the roof.
Current estimations expect DraftKings to post quarterly losses of $0.50 a share in Friday’s release, which equates to a -177.8% year-over-year change.
Revenues, however, are expected to come in just over $222 million, a 151.5% increase from last year’s Q1 returns.
Calculating estimates is not an easy task, and DraftKings fell short of these estimates last quarter. Analyst projected a $0.57 loss per share, only to end up with a $0.69 loss.
DraftKings has not managed to outperform any consensus EPS quarterly estimates in four consecutive releases.
