JD.com (JD) Q3 earnings preview: Strength in ecommerce to drive results

JD.com Inc. (NASDAQ: JD) is scheduled to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on November 15, Friday, before the market opens. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.17 per share on $18.1 billion.

The momentum in ecommerce is expected to have continued in the third quarter and the topline is expected to benefit from this strength. The company’s expansion into new markets and its partnerships with leading retailers and international brands will also help fuel the quarterly results.

JD.com’s solid logistics network that facilitates its structured delivery services is another advantage for the company. However, the economic situation in China as well as the trade tensions with the US are likely to have had an impact on results. Rising costs due to business and growth investments might also weigh on the bottom line.
