    Earnings Preview: First Internet Bancorp (INBK) Q1 Earnings Expected to Decline

    First Internet Bancorp (INBK) is expected to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on lower revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended March 2019. The earnings report, which is expected to be released on April 24, 2019, might help the stock move higher if these key numbers are better than expectations. While the sustainability of the immediate price change and future earnings expectations will mostly depend on management's discussion of business conditions on the earnings call, it's worth handicapping the probability of a positive EPS surprise.

    Here's Why StoneCo Stock Is Plunging Today

    Shares of Brazilian fintech company StoneCo (NASDAQ: STNE), which gained notoriety in recent months after being added to Berkshire Hathaway's portfolio, are plummeting today.

    Flowserve Corporation (NYSE:FLS), which is in the machinery business, and is based in United States, saw a significant share price rise of over 20% in the past couple of months on the NYSE. With many analysts covering the mid-cap stock, we may expect any price-sensitive announcements have already been factored into the stock's share price.

    Pier 1 liquidation is a possibility, analysts say

    Pier 1 Imports Inc.'s Interim Chief Executive Cheryl Bachelder may have taken an optimistic tone after the home décor retailer reported disappointing fourth-quarter earnings, but analysts were bearish, bringing up the possibility of a liquidation in the not-so-distant future. “Given the trends in business, and its negative earnings per share, EBITDA [earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization], and free cash flow, we see Pier 1 and its $1.6 billion in revenues as potentially at risk of needing liquidation if trends don't improve,” wrote KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts led by Bradley Thomas. KeyBanc thinks Kirkland's Inc. (KIRK)  , Williams-Sonoma Inc. (WSM)  , Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY)  and At Home Group Inc. (HOME)  would benefit from a Pier 1 (PIR)  liquidation.

    Don't expect Boeing Co. to face a slew of order cancellations following the 737 Max debacle. Airlines, Boeing's (BA) main customers, are hungry for fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft such as the Max, and there's a long backlog for the jet's closest competitor, Airbus SE' (FR:AIR) A320neo, analysts at Oxford Economics said in a note Thursday. “That will shield Boeing from a mass cancellation of orders,” the analysts said.

    Here's Why Blackstone Shares Jumped on Thursday

    Shares of Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) climbed nearly 7% on Thursday morning after the alternative asset manager reported first-quarter earnings that blew past expectations and announced plans to convert to a corporation from a partnership. Blackstone, before markets opened, said it had earned $0.71 per share in the first quarter, easily surpassing the consensus estimate for $0.53 per share in earnings. The partnership structure has prevented some classes of investors, namely pension funds and other tax-exempt institutions, from buying shares of Blackstone, and has made the company ineligible for inclusion on certain indexes.
