What to expect when iQiyi (IQ) reports Q3 earnings?

iQiyi (NASDAQ: IQ), dubbed the Chinese Netflix, is slated to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on Wednesday, November 6, after the market closes.

Last quarter, the company’s subscriber base grew to 100.5 million, of which nearly 99% were paid members.

Content distribution revenue declined by 4% in Q2 2019 but this was due to the delay of certain content launches in the quarter. The weakness in advertising is expected to continue, taking a toll on the results. The economic environment in China is also likely to impact the quarterly results.
