Airbnb Q4 Preview

The expansion of Airbnb has begun to live up to its buzz as a premier platform for booking unique, non-traditional accommodations, competing with the established hotel offerings. In the past year alone, it has added nearly 1 million global listings, indicating pronounced momentum, which is expected to persist following a record travel season during the third quarter.

Projections indicate a 14% surge in fourth-quarter sales to $2.16 billion. Additionally, estimated earnings per share (EPS) of $0.67 would represent a meteoric 39% surge. The forecast paints a picture of Airbnb wrapping up fiscal 2023 with total sales climbing 17% to $9.86 billion and annual earnings skyrocketing 201% to $8.40 per share. Notably, Airbnb has remarkably surpassed earnings expectations for 10 consecutive quarters, averaging an impressive 49.99% beating in its last four quarterly reports.
