SoFi (NASDAQ: SOFI) stock price has moved sideways in the past few days as investors wait for the company’s earnings scheduled for May 1. The stock was trading at $5.76, which was a few points below this month’s high of $6.28. It has fallen by 30% below the year-to-date high.
SoFi earnings preview
SoFi, the fintech giant, will publish its financial results on Monday. These results will provide more information about the company’s performance in the first quarter. In the previous quarter, the company said that its revenue jumped by 58% in Q4 to $558 million. This increase was better than what analysts were expecting.
Further, its adjusted EBITDA jumped to $70 million. For the full year, the company said that its net revenue came in at $1.58 billion. It grew its banking license to $7.3 billion while the number of members jumped by 1.8 million to 5.2 million.
Analysts expect that the company’s revenue jumped to $437 million in the first quarter. If this is correct, the revenue will be higher than the $321 million that it made in the same quarter in 2022. Its loss per share is expected to have come in at 8 cents.
Analysts believe that SoFi will continue growing its business in the coming years, thanks to its well-diversified business. Precisely, they expect that the company’s revenue will soar to $2.88 billion in 2025 and then double to $6.9 billion by 2030.
Analysts are upbeat about SoFi, with some calling it the AWS of the financial industry. That’s because of the strength of the company’s business, which includes a banking charter, Galileo, and Technisys. Galileo, which SoFi acquired for $1.2 billion, provides API for digital banking.
Technisys, on the other hand, provides a cloud-native multi-core banking platform. Its banking charter makes it possible for the company to use deposits to lend to customers. Deposits are cheaper financing sources.
