Q2 2015 Twitter Earnings Rundown (NYSE:TWTR)

  • Earnings: FactSet analysts expect adjusted earnings of $0.04 per share. That’s $0.02 per share more than the same period a year ago.
  • Revenue: Estimated revenue is $482 million, up 54% from a year ago, but still a slowdown in growth rate the last few quarters.
  • Ad sales: Estimated ad revenue of $426 million will account for most of the social media company’s total sales.


  • Shake-up: Dick Costolo stepped down as CEO July 1. TWTR now seeks a CEO who can make a “full-time commitment.” Has it selected a new chief?
  • Monthly active users: In Q4 2014, TWTR fell 7 million under estimates. In Q1 2015, MAUs were at 308 million, compared to FB’s 1.44 billion.


  • Twitter stock: Down more than 15% in the last three months, compared to a 1.1% a drop for the S&P. Will Q2 numbers make it better, or worse?
  • Forward guidance: Wall Street projects roughly 15.5% sequential revenue growth in the third quarter.

TWTR stock gained nearly 5% ahead of its earnings release.

The Bottom Line: TWTR earnings must show improvement in user base growth and strength in management before we’ll call Twitter stock a “Buy.”
