Yirendai slips as operational weakness overrides Q4 earnings beat

China-based fintech firm Yirendai (YRD) showed broad-based weakness in the fourth quarter, sending its stock down 3.9% during pre-market trading on Monday. Investors remained unmoved by the adjusted earnings of $1.32 per ADS in Q4, much higher than the street projection of 51 cents per ADS.

Hurt by a decline in loan origination volume, total net revenue in the fourth quarter tumbled 30% to $184.8 million.
