What should you expect from the upcoming earnings call by Oracle?
Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) will announce Q3 results on March 10. The results come in the wake of increased geopolitical risk to global capital markets. For Oracle, the risk is also characterized by declining business.
The hardware segment experienced a decline of 9% as the services grew by 7%. The licensing business for cloud-based and on-premise software solutions remains strong and the company’s main source of revenue.
Investors expect Oracle to report positive EPS and growth in dividends, emerging from the $0.46 per share loss that the company recorded in the last quarter.
The previous quarter’s loss resulted from contingent liabilities from a 10-year suit by a former employee. That having been settled, investors will be checking to see how the company performs.
