Qudian (QD) Q3 earnings preview: Factors to watch

Qudian Inc. (NYSE: QD) is slated to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on Monday, November 18, before the market opens. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.52 per share on revenue of $282.2 million. This compares to earnings of $0.34 per share on revenue of $285.2 million.

The fintech firm saw growth in its registered user base and the number of borrowers last quarter. This trend is expected to have continued in the third quarter and is likely to benefit results. Qudian generated healthy profits from its open-platform initiative in the second quarter and the company believes it has the potential to become a significant growth driver going forward.

Qudian has managed to reduce its expenses and the lower costs are likely to help the bottom line numbers. The company is one of the few Chinese firms that have delivered comparatively strong results despite the economic slowdown in China and trade tensions with the US.
