Bilibili Earnings Preview


Bilibili BILI unveils its next round of earnings this Thursday, May 13. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the earnings announcement.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Based on management's projections, Bilibili analysts modeled for a loss of $0.35 per share on sales of $586.02 million. In the same quarter last year, Bilibili reported EPS of $0.2 on revenue of $327.00 million.


What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Analysts who cover this company will publish forward-looking estimates of its revenue and EPS each quarter. Averaging together every EPS and revenue prediction that each analyst makes about a company in a quarter yields the "consensus estimates." A company posting earnings or revenue above or below the consensus estimate is known as an "earnings surprise" and may move the stock by a considerable margin.

The Wall Street estimate would represent a 75.0% decline in the company's earnings. Sales would be up 79.21% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate -0.33 -0.37 -0.22 -0.16
EPS Actual -0.29 -0.41 -0.19 -0.20
Revenue Estimate 551.45 M 465.87 M 368.47 M 308.62 M
Revenue Actual 588.50 M 475.10 M 370.50 M 327.00 M

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 210.51%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can relax going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already enjoying 12-month gains prior to the announcement.

Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. Bilibili is scheduled to hold the call at 08:00:00 ET and can be accessed here.
