OnDeck Q1 2015 Earnings CallMay 4, 2015 | By: Sean Murray
OnDeck (ONDK) is scheduled to release Q1 2015 earnings today at 5pm EST. Anyone can register to listen to the call via web HERE or by dialing in through (877)201-0168 with conference ID 23530259.
OnDeck closed Friday at $19.29, just 8 cents below where it closed leading up to the 2014 Q4 and year-end earnings call on February 23rd. By that measure, the stock has been relatively flat.
Recently, the company announced expansions into Canada and Australia, though analysts such as Henry Coffey of Sterne Agee remain skeptical.
“If the opportunity is so large in the U.S., why go halfway around the world to lose money?” Coffey told the Wall Street Journal.
The Street doesn’t see eye to eye on OnDeck. Compass Point issued a sell rating with a price target of $14 while Deutsche Bank issued a buy rating with a price target of $28. Meanwhile, news media continue to disseminate incorrect information about the company by often times referring to them as a peer-to-peer lender.
OnDeck has never been a peer-to-peer lender.
In April, the company announced a strategic partnership with Prosper, though the extent of their collaboration is uncertain.
OnDeck predicted a net loss for all of 2015 in their 2014 year-end report. Consequently, it is likely OnDeck will report a loss today for Q1, though analysts expect year over year revenue growth of almost double.May 4, 2015
