For revenue, the consensus estimate is about $2.817 billion, up 8.9% from the figure reported in the same period last year.
Let’s see how this quarter plays out.
Factors to be aware of
Caesars Entertainment’s fourth-quarter results likely benefited from pent-up demand, retail sportsbook expansion and real estate development plans. That, along with improving group and convention trends in Las Vegas and a resurgence in international travel, likely helped the company’s fourth-quarter results. During its last quarterly earnings call, the company revealed that Las Vegas had an occupancy rate of 94%. In addition, it said group room nights exceeded 2019 levels. This momentum is likely to continue in the fourth quarter as international consumers return and traditional demand accelerates. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter Las Vegas revenue and regional revenue is $1.124 billion and $1.386 billion, up 8.1% and 1.6% from the year-ago period, respectively.
An emphasis on digital through aggressive customer acquisition and improvements to its in-app merger technology likely drove fourth-quarter revenue. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Caesars Digital’s fourth-quarter revenue is pegged at $247 million, up 112.9% from the $116 million reported in the year-ago period.
However, increased investments in digital business (regarding product enhancements), competitive pricing strategy and lower holdings in some markets may affect the company’s fourth-quarter performance. Higher utility expenses could impact margins in the to-be-reported quarter.
