eBay (EBAY) is set to report Q4 after the bell (released results last quarter at 4:15pm ET). The co has a conference call scheduled to follow at 5:00pm ET. 

Cap IQ Consensus estimates Q4 EPS of $0.53 (vs. $0.50 last year) w/ revs of $2.4 bln (+4% y/y)

  • Last quarter, the co guided for Q4 EPS of $0.52-0.54 and revs of $2.36-2.41 bln
  • The co typically provides guidance for FY and next quarter in its press release.
    • Consensus Estimates FY 17 EPS of $2.07 on revs $9.37 bln (+7% Y/Y)
    • Consensus Estimates Q1 EPS of $0.50 (vs. $0.47 last year) on revs of $2.22 bln (-3% Y/Y)

On October 19, EBAY beat Q3 expectations on both EPS and revs, and it guided Q4 inline w/ the midpoint below consensus

Co noted that the deceleration was driven primarily by Stubhub lapping last year's product changes and in part by marketing spending shift

StubHub growth accelerated in the quarter, with GMV of $1.1 billion, +23%, and revenue of $263 million, +32%, aided by strength across concerts, theater and baseball as well as the continued benefit from ongoing product innovation

The company's total repurchase authorization remaining as of September 30, 2016 was $2.3 billion.
