  • RBC Capital analyst Matthew Swanson acknowledged that earnings to date from walled-garden advertisers split into two groups, and stocks have reacted accordingly, showing investors willing to reward upside against negative sentiment into earnings.

  • Specifically, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) were the only names to top consensus estimates by an average of 1.1%, while the remaining social players missed by an average of 5%.

  • Since the start of the earnings season, he saw walled gardens decline by 11.8%, while open-internet companies have reduced by 7.5% in sympathy.

  • To that extent, he felt negative sentiment at least partially priced into the print.

  • Based on peer results, he felt that open-internet players in his coverage, including Magnite, Inc (NASDAQ: MGNI) (Outperperform; Price Target: $22), PubMatic, Inc (NASDAQ: PUBM) (Outperform; PT: $33), Tremor International Ltd (NASDAQ: TRMR) (Outperform; PT: $21), and The Trade Desk, Inc (NASDAQ: TTD) (Outperform; PT: $85), were more similar to the omnichannel revenue of GOOGL and AMZN than the walled gardens, creating a more defensible position for Q2 results.

  • That said, the 4.3% reduction in Q3 consensus estimates for reported wall-garden peers that he saw to date directionally reflected the conservatism he anticipated in Q3 for companies, given the challenging macro and uncertainty around the timing of robust political spend.

  • Price Action: MGNI shares traded higher by 0.86% at $7.71 on the last check Monday.
