Yelp Q3 earnings preview: Factors to note

Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP) is slated to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on Thursday, November 7, after the market closes. The company is expected to report higher revenue and earnings for the quarter. Analysts have forecast earnings of $0.19 per share, which compares to $0.17 reported in the prior-year period. Revenue is estimated to increase 8% to $262.2 million.

The topline results are expected to benefit from strength in advertising and services. Yelp generates the majority of its revenue from advertising, and this division saw a growth of 5% in the second quarter. The results were driven mainly by a 6% growth in the number of paying advertising locations last quarter.

Revenues from Other Services increased 15% last quarter. However, transaction revenues have been witnessing declines over the past two quarters and this trend is not expected to change in the third quarter.
