Pandora Media (P) earnings preview: eyes on the AdsWizz acquisition

7:46 pm ET, 28 Jul 2018

Pandora Media, Inc. (P) is expected to report earnings on July 31 after market close. The report will be for the fiscal quarter ending June 2018. Shares are trading at 8.19, down -0.12%.

What are P earnings expectations?  What should investors know about Pandora?

The Pandora stock has been worn down by years of competition with Spotify (NYSE:SPOT) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), but in the past 3 months, it finally showed signs of life.  The 50% surge in the last 3 months brought the stock price back up to the levels from over a year ago. The bulls are stoked about Pandora’s subscription services and also the AdsWizz acquisition, which powered the stock’s recent comeback. 

AdsWizz is an ad-tech platform that serves as a marketplace for programmatic audio ads. AdsWizz has many customers.  The bulls claim that the ad platform will help Pandora benefit from secular growth in audio and voice, and AdsWizz success on a quarterly basis won't be completely correlated with listening trends at Pandora.  So the company’s future will be a bit less tied to actual Pandora listening.

Pandora Media Inc. has a mixed history of beating analysts’ earnings estimates.  In the past four quarters, the company:

  • Beat analyst EPS estimates by 10 cents ($-.27 actuals vs. $-.37 forecast) in FQ1’18.

For FQ2’18, EPS is expected to grow by 33% year-over-year to $-.14, while revenue is expected to decline 1% year-over-year to $374 million.
