XPeng Q4 Earnings Expectations


XPeng (XPEV) is set to release its Q4 financial data on Tuesday, despite a 36% decline in its stock this year, partly due to the Chinese New Year’s impact on monthly delivery numbers. Seeking Alpha’s Quant Rating system upgraded the stock to Hold, while Wall Street analysts maintain a Buy rating. SA author Dair Sansyzbayev warns that XPEV’s stock price has dropped 48% since October 2023, raising concerns about business model viability due to opposite revenue and EPS movements.

Micron Technology Q4 Financial Results

Micron Technology is set to release its quarterly earnings after the closing bell. Stifel has upgraded the memory chipmaker to Buy from Hold, with analyst Brian Chin raising the price target to $120.

Chin believes tightening conditions in the dynamic random access memory supply will allow Micron to optimize its product mix, including DDR5/LPDDR5, high-capacity DIMMs, and HBM, and augment cyclical recovery in gross margins.

Stifel sees a “sweet spot” for memory, which should drive multiple expansions due to its increased connection to artificial intelligence via high-bandwidth memory. The stock continues to receive a Hold rating from Seeking Alpha’s Quant Rating system.

Consensus EPS Estimates: -$0.26
Consensus Revenue Estimates: $5.34B
Earnings Insight: Micron has beaten EPS expectations in 6 of the past 8 quarters and has beaten revenue estimates in half of those reports.

FedEx Quarterly Performance Update


FedEx, a major player in package delivery services, is set to announce its quarterly earnings after the closing bell. Despite a strong performance, with a gain of over 29% over a 12-month period, the company receives a Hold rating from SA’s Quant Ratings, contrasting with the consensus Buy rating maintained by Wall Street analysts.

SA investing group leader Leo Nelissen suggests potential growth due to analyst expectations and cost-saving strategies, but cautions investors due to FedEx’s diversification efforts and technological advancements in the e-commerce landscape. Stock Waves, another SA investing group leader, takes a more bearish stance, noting potential downside patterns in the future.

Consensus EPS Estimates: $3.51
Consensus Revenue Estimates: $22.09B


Earnings Insight: FedEx has beaten EPS estimates in 4 of the past 8 quarters, rising above revenue expectations in only one of those reports.

Nike

Nike is set to release its quarterly results on Thursday, following a mixed performance in the previous quarter. CFO Matthew Friend viewed the results as a turning point for profitable growth. Nike remains committed to strong gross margin execution and disciplined cost management. The stock has a Hold rating from Seeking Alpha’s Quant Rating system, reflecting a more cautious stance compared to Wall Street analysts’ consensus Buy rating. However, NKE’s valuation remains at a premium, potentially exposing it to downside risk.

Consensus EPS Estimates: $0.76
Consensus Revenue Estimates: $12.29B

Earnings Insight: The company has beaten EPS estimates 7 times in the past 8 quarters and revenue expectations in 6 of those reports.

Also reporting: Lululemon Athletica (LULU), SNDL (SNDL), Nano Dimension (NNDM), Accenture (ACN), Baozun (BZUN), Darden Restaurants (DRI), Winnebago Industries (WGO), BIOLASE (BIOL), Cellectis S.A.
