Analysts expect revenue of $7.7 billion in fiscal 4Q17
Analysts expect US-based (SPY) tech (QQQ) company Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to report revenue of $7.7 billion in fiscal 4Q17 (ended October 2017). Wall Street has a high revenue estimate of $8.1 billion and a low estimate of $7.3 billion for fiscal 4Q17.
If HPE meets analysts’ average revenue estimate, it would mean a YoY (year-over-year) fall of ~38% from its revenue of ~$12.5 billion in 4Q16, primarily due to spin-offs and divestures undertaken by HPE over the last year. After adjusting for the spin-offs, HPE reported revenue of $8.1 billion in fiscal 4Q16.
