Voya Financial (VOYA) Q3 Earnings and Revenues Top Estimates


As we look ahead to the 2023 Q1 season, one thing is sure – the 2022 Q4 season wasn’t nearly as bad as feared.

Many companies posted better-than-expected results, helping to keep the market afloat.

However, there are still some notable quarterly prints coming soon, including that from Adobe ADBE.

Adobe is one of the biggest software companies in the world, generating the bulk of its revenue via licensing fees from its customers.

How does the company stack up heading into its quarterly print? Let’s take a closer look.

Key Metric

Investors should keep tabs on a critical metric: the company’s Subscription revenue.

For the quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Subscription revenue stands firm at $4.3 billion, indicating a positive change of more than 10% year-over-year.

Adobe has consistently exceeded expectations within this metric, as seen in the chart below.

Putting Everything Together

Adobe shares have underperformed relative to the S&P 500 across several timeframes, but remain marginally in the green year-to-date.

Within the release, a key metric for investors to watch closely is the company’s subscription revenue, a metric that Adobe has consistently positively surprised on.

Further, analysts have been silent for the quarter to be reported, with estimates suggesting year-over-year growth in both earnings and revenue.

Heading into the release, Adobe ADBE is currently a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
