Google will earn billions on Pokèmon`s success

Google is expected to report earnings on Thursday 28, 2016, after market close. The report will be for the fiscal Quarter ending Jun 2016. The Google stock has skyrocketed since June this year, and this company never stop to impress.

A couple of days ago we saw Apple go straight up after their earnings report. It is forecasted that Apple could see $3 billion in revenue over the next one to two years generated exclusively by Pokèmon Go.

So is it for Google.

The success of Pokèmon seems to give a huge bonus for both Apple and Google. Google Play are the base for any successful games running on Google`s platform, and so is it for the App Store at Apple.

The huge difference between Apple and Google are their system like iPhone and Android, but the amount of money consumers are spending on both platforms will benefit them both.

Nintendo jumped from 15,000 (TYO: 7974) in June to 32,000 on 19 July this year on their success Pokèmon Go. But it peaked at about 32,000. It plunged 14% yesterday on bad results. Earnings of $0,65 per share from a year ago plunge to a net loss of $1,93 per share.

Nintendo`s Wii U system also fell over 50% YoY. This is why Nintendo is going down and Google up.

Keep in mind that Nintendo is not the producer of the Pokèmon go app. Nor do they sell it.

The Pokèmon Company is a joint venture between Nintendo and two other Japanese companies, and they receives license fees from Pokèmon Go`s in-game purchases. Most of all these fees goes to former Google subsidiary Niantic Labs.

It`s funny when games like this has huge success. They will all profit from it, but for how long will the trend continue? Once it is over, it will drop like a stone.

We all know the story of fresh games like Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong, and we also know that this is not the end of the gaming era. Nintendo are about to finish its next-generation video games console, code-named Nintendo NX.

Maybe Google will profit from that to.

EPS forecast for the quarter is 6,47 compared to $4,93 at the same time last year.

From $4 to $20 billion in three years

Microsoft is a great company, and CEO Satya Nadella is doing something right. Last year he said that Microsoft will try to reach $20 billion in revenue for its cloud business serices in 2017. Their cloud business is Office 365 commercial, Azure, Dynamics Online and other cloud properties.

The company had $4 billion in revenue from its cloud business in Q4 2014, and reached $12 billion in the past quarter. The arrow goes straight up and their new goal is for fiscal year 2018 (July 2017 – June 2018).

It seems like investors are impressed. They like what they see, and its shares jumped more than five percent after their earning report earlier this week. Microsoft is not so hot and trendy for investors anymore, but the tech giant is still running a great business.

We have seen a shift from mobile to cloud, and Microsoft is still innovative and thats why they are among the biggest companies in the world. Market cap is over $400 billion, and they are still growing. Thats impressive.

In their fourth quarter of the companys fiscal 2016, revenue from Microsoft Azure grew 102% YoY. Azures usage more than doubled in only one year.

Microsoft beat expectations, posting an adjusted profit of $5,5 billion on $22,6 billion in revenue. Their strategy on Windows 10 is a huge success and so are Office 365. The company is still among the biggest companies in the world.

Microsoft are near its peak in 1999

Microsoft is well-known for its operating systems and what its founder Bill Gates have done for the company from the early beginning, but that part of the company is not the best performing part anymore.

We all know that the PC business in declining as demand continues to wane. But Microsoft`s stock has increased. The stock peaked in 1999, and have never yet recovered. Until now. The stock is trading near its 1999 level.

The focus has shifted from PC sales to its growing cloud business. Just like Google and Amazon, Microsoft are among the few leaders in the cloud business. Their cloud business includes Office 365, Dynamics CRM and Azure, and they all reported gains of over 5 percent last quarter.

Microsoft will report after the close on Thursday 19, and its expected to hear that CEO Satya Nadella will talk about their latest acquisition; LinkedIn. Whats interesting is to hear how they are planning to integrate LinkedIn into their core business, because investors are a little bit confused about the valuation of the company after the acquisition.

Other things to look for is how Microsoft`s business will be hit by Brexit, because about 7 percent of their business comes from UK alone. On top of that there is a strong dollar, so this is something that will have an impact to the bottom line for Microsoft.

The Estimize consensus is calling for earnings per share of 55 cents on $13,56 billion in revenue, which is 2 cents higher that Wall Street on the bottom line and nearly in-line on the top. Compared to a year earlier, this represents a 2 percent decline in earnings while sales could grow by 3 percent.

Across the board, the banking sector will be impacted by the Brexit vote, low-interest rates and currency headwinds. The rebound in the oil market and gas prices will alleviate pressure on energy loan losses going forward.

Last quarter, JPMorgan reported increases in consumer banking and asset management sectors. Net interest income increased as well, despite rates staying close to zero during the period. However, significant declines were seen in commercial and investment banking sectors.

The Estimize consensus is looking for earnings per share of $1,44 on revenue of $23,83 billion, 1 cent higher than Wall Street on the bottom line and $50 million on the top. compared to year earlier this represents a 7% decline in earnings and 3% in sales.

Shares of JPMorgan are down 5% YTD and typically don`t react to quarterly results.
