The Zacks Consensus Estimate for S&P Global’s third-quarter 2022 revenues stands at $2.91 billion, indicating growth of 39.4% from the year-ago period’s reported figure.
Segment wise, Market Intelligence revenues are expected to have gained from growth in Credit & Risk Solutions. Commodity Insights revenues are expected to have been driven by the inclusion of IHS Markit, Price Assessments, strong growth in Advisory & Transactional Services, and Energy & Resources Data & Insights. Indices revenues are likely to have been aided by strength across Data & Custom Subscriptions and exchange-traded derivative activity.
However, Ratings revenues are likely to have been hurt by less strength in transaction revenues (due to the exceptionally soft issuance environment). Transaction revenues are likely to have been affected by a decrease in debt issuance across all categories. Non-transaction revenues are expected to have been dented by lower Issuer Credit Rating revenues and an unfavorable foreign exchange.
