What's in Store for Red Rock Resorts (RRR) in Q4 Earnings?
Red Rock Resorts, Inc. RRR is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2022 results on Feb 7, 2023, after the closing bell. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 71.4%.
How are Estimates Placed?
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter earnings is pegged at 56 cents per share, indicating a gain of 1.8% from 55 cents reported in the year-ago quarter. For revenues, the Zacks Consensus Estimate is pegged at $421.3 million, suggesting a decline of 0.3% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
Let's take a look at how things have shaped up in the quarter.
Factors at Play
Red Rock Resorts’ fourth-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from strong spending per visit across its portfolio and digitalization. Attributes such as best-in-class assets and locations, unparallel distribution and scale, and a solid organic development pipeline are likely to have aided the company’s performance.
However, dismal casino and room revenues are likely to have impacted the company’s top line. We expect casino and room revenues to decline 1.5% and 14.3% year over year to $285.1 million and $37.1 million, respectively. Nevertheless, food and beverage revenues are likely to increase 8.9% year over year to $75 million.
Rise in labor and commodity costs is likely to have affected the performance. In the third quarter, the company witnessed price inflation in ordinary goods and services such as food costs, supplies, energy costs and construction costs. It also witnessed higher costs on account of labor and supply-chain shortages. These are expected to have occurred in the fourth quarter as well.
