What to expect when Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) reports Q4 results?

Hewlett Packard Enterprises (NYSE: HPE) is slated to report fourth quarter and fiscal year 2019 earnings results on Monday, November 25, after the market closes. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $0.46 per share on revenue of $7.4 billion. This compares to EPS of $0.45 on revenue of $7.9 billion reported a year earlier.

The company has seen a decline in its topline over the past three quarters and it remains to be seen if this trend will continue in the final quarter of this year. Weakness in segment revenues coupled with negative currency impacts could pull down the overall results.

HPE delivered Q3 adjusted earnings of 45 cents per share, beating Wall Street expectation of 40 cents per share

However, strength in Aruba Services, High Performance Compute and Composable Cloud provide some optimism that revenues could see a pickup. Last quarter, Aruba Services, Composable Cloud and HPE Nimble Storage saw double-digit growth. The company has been focusing on more profitable products and services and slowly moving away from low-margin businesses.

Last month, HPE stated that its strategy of investing in high value, software-defined solutions had helped improve profitability across the company over the past year. The company plans to offer the entire HPE portfolio as-a-Service by fiscal year 2022 and sees solid market opportunity in this space.

In the third quarter of 2019, HPE beat earnings expectations but missed revenue estimates. Revenues fell 7% to $7.2 billion while adjusted EPS rose 7% to $0.45.
