JD.com: What To Watch For With Q2 Earnings

The sell-side analysts expect slower revenue growth and an earnings decline for JD in Q2 2022, as it was affected by pandemic lockdown disruptions and higher costs relating to COVID-19. Investors should watch JD's performance at the recent 618 Shopping Festival and its cost optimization initiatives to determine the likelihood of either an earnings beat or miss in Q2 2022. I am upgrading my rating for JD.com stock from a Hold to a Buy, in view of an expected EPS beat for JD and the company's improved shareholder capital return. Elevator Pitch My investment rating for JD.com, Inc.'s (JD) [9618:HK] stock is a Buy. Previously, I evaluated JD's five-year or intermediate-term outlook in an earlier article for the company written on September 3, 2021. My latest update for JD.com focuses on the preview of the stock's upcoming quarterly earnings. My view is that it is highly probable that JD.com's actual Q2 2022 earnings can beat expectations. If investors watch JD's 618 Shopping Festival GMV growth and its commentary on costs at its Q1 2022 earnings briefing, they should see positive signs related to the company's Q2 2022 earnings expectations. Also, I am positive on JD's special dividend payment earlier in the year and its decision to increase its share repurchase authorization in end-2021. This explains my decision to raise my rating for JD from a Hold to a Buy. JD.com Q2 2022 Earnings Announcement Date In a press release published on August 10, 2022, JD revealed that its financial results for the second quarter of the current year will be announced on August 23, 2022, prior to trading hours. The Consensus Financial Forecasts For JD JD.com is expected to have experienced slower top line expansion in Q2 2022, and it should have seen a decrease in its bottom line for the same quarter, according to consensus numbers. Based on the sell-side's consensus financial forecasts obtained from S&P Capital IQ, JD's revenue growth (in RMB terms) is projected to slow from +26.2% YoY in Q2 2021 and +18.0% YoY in Q1 2022 to a mere +3.1% YoY for Q2 2022. The market's expectations of a moderation in the top line growth rate for JD.com in the second quarter of this year appears to be reasonable. China probably saw the worst of COVID-related lockdowns in April 2022, which affected key cities including Shanghai. There was a progressive easing of pandemic restrictions in the country in June 2022, but it is fair to assume that COVID-19 lockdowns in China hurt the country's economy and affected JD's business operations for a significant part of Q2 2022. On the other hand, analysts see JD.com reversing from a +2.4% YoY increase in its normalized earnings per share for Q1 2022 to a -4.7% YoY decline in its adjusted EPS for Q2 2022, in RMB terms. Apart from negative operating leverage, it is likely that the sell-side analysts considered the probability of higher expenses and an unfavorable revenue mix in determining their profit estimates for JD. The company had earlier highlighted at its Q1 2022 results briefing on May 17, 2022 that its near-term profitability will be negatively impacted by "additional COVID-related costs" and "product mix shift due to the uneven performance of our different product categories." As such, an expected contraction in JD's earnings for Q2 2022 seems fairly realistic. Spotlight On 618 Shopping Festival It is important to review JD.com's performance for the 618 Shopping Festival, before I assess whether a Q2 2022 earnings beat or miss for JD is more likely. A Chinese data analytics company, Syntun, describes the 618 Shopping Festival as "the second-largest e-commerce shopping festival in China" which is "second only to 'Single's Day' (November 11)" in a press release dated June 19, 2022. In a blog post published on June 19, 2022, JD revealed that its gross merchandise volume or GMV increased by +10.3% YoY from RMB343.8 billion during the 618 Shopping Festival in 2021 to RMB379.3 billion for this year's 618 Shopping Festival. It is worthy of note that JD.com's prior second-quarter top line expansion has approximated its GMV growth for the 618 Shopping Festival to a large extent. As an illustration, JD's revenue rose by +33.8% YoY in Q2 2020 and this was just slightly higher than the company's +33.2% YoY increase in GMV for the 618 Shopping Festival in 2020. Similarly, JD delivered a +27.8% YoY growth in GMV for the 2021 618 Shopping Festival, and its Q2 2021 sales increase wasn't that far off at +26.2% YoY. In summary, JD's performance at the 618 Shopping Festival for 2022 wasn't as good as that for prior years, but this was to be expected considering the negative effects of COVID-19 lockdowns on the economy and consumer confidence. More significantly, there is a gap between JD's GMV growth (+10.3%) for this year's 618 Shopping Festival and the market's consensus Q2 2022 revenue expansion estimate (+3.1%), and I discuss the implications of this in the subsequent section. JD Should Deliver A Q2 2022 Earnings Beat I hold the view that there is a high probability of an earnings beat for JD when it reports Q2 2022 financial results on August 23, 2022. As I highlighted in the prior section of this article, the sell-side's consensus revenue growth projection for JD.com in Q2 2022 seems to be a tad too low compared with the company's GMV growth for this year's 618 Shopping Festival. Even after considering the COVID-19 lockdowns and related logistical challenges in delivering products, I think JD could possibly achieve a YoY revenue growth in the +4%-5% range for Q2 2022, which implies that its second-quarter top line will surpass market expectations. My expectations of a Q2 2022 earnings beat for JD.com are supported by both higher-than-expected revenue and lower-than-expected costs for JD in the quarter. Although I discussed about pandemic-related expenses which will be a drag on JD's profitability in an earlier section of this article, it is likely that JD.com can offset these additional costs with other cost optimization initiatives. JD.com disclosed at its Q1 2022 earnings call in the middle of May 2022 that it has been implementing "strict cost and expense control measures to step up financial discipline" starting in "mid-March", and noted that "we will continue that (cost control measures) in Q2." At the first-quarter investor call, JD also noted that it "adjusted the investment pace and further focused on fewer selected regions" for its new businesses (typically faster-growing businesses on revenue which are either loss making or boast low profitability). Therefore, I think that JD's costs and profitability for Q2 2022 could be better than what investors expect.
