Key Takeaways from GoDaddy’s Q1 Earnings Report

GoDaddy (GDDY) offers solutions that support small businesses selling online. GDDY reported mixed Q1 2022 results and the stock declined about 2.6% during extended trading on May 4, following the earnings report.

Q1 Earnings at a Glance

Revenue of $1 billion jumped 11.5% year-over-year and exceeded the consensus estimate of $989.49 million. While earnings per share (EPS) of $0.41 rose from $0.06 for the same quarter the previous year, it missed the consensus estimate of $0.42.

Buyback Program Gets a Boost

GoDaddy expects to return $1 billion to shareholders through stock repurchases in 2022. It initially unveiled a $750 million repurchase plan and has now added $250 million to the program.

Q2 Outlook

The company anticipates Q2 revenue in the range of $1.01 billion to $1.02 billion, which suggests 9% year-over-year growth at the midpoint. The consensus estimate calls for revenue of $1.02 billion.

For the full year 2022, GoDaddy expects revenue in the range of $4.14 billion to $4.16 billion, representing 9% growth at the midpoint. Wall Street is expecting revenue of $4.16 billion for the year.

GoDaddy CFO, Mark McCaffrey, said, “We remain committed to delivering a balanced combination of durable top-line growth, profitability at scale and robust cash flow as outlined at our recent Investor Day.”

Wall Street’s Take

Consensus among analysts is a Strong Buy based on nine Buys and two Holds. The average GoDaddy price forecast stands at $106 and implies upside potential of 29% to current levels. Shares have gained about 13% over the past six months.

Website Traffic

During Q1, GoDaddy’s Website Traffic Tool recorded a 4.6% year-over-year increase in total visits. An upward website traffic trend can indicate increased interest in a company’s products, which can in turn offer a clue into the company’s performance. In GoDaddy’s case, the traffic surge correctly predicted the company’s revenue growth.

Key Takeaway for Investors 

In a mostly volatile market where investors continue to worry about inflation, supply chain constraints, and the war in Ukraine, GoDaddy’s repurchase program could help stabilize the stock.
