Zillow soars 9% on Q2 beat, says more considering moving amid COVID-19
Zillow Group Inc. shares skyrocketed more than 9% in the extended session Thursday after the real estate company reported second-quarter revenue well above Wall Street expectations and said work-from-home trends have led more people to think about moving. Zillow said it lost $84.5 million, or 38 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with a loss of $72 million, or 35 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Revenue rose 28% to $768 million, the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet expected a GAAP loss of 68 cents a share on sales of $615 million. "Zillow's second-quarter results are even better than we had hoped, and firm up our belief that powerful tailwinds in both real estate and technology are rapidly converging, with Zillow at the nexus," Chief Executive Rich Barton said in a statement. The COVID-19 pandemic and work-from-home policies "are inspiring people to rethink their homes and consider moving," he said. Zillow said it ended the quarter with the highest cash balance in its history, or cash and investments growing to $3.5 billion from $2.6 billion at the end of first quarter. Its home buying and selling business started the quarter with home acquisitions temporarily paused due to market uncertainty, but it has resumed buying and selling homes, ending the quarter with 440 homes in inventory, the company said. "Zillow Offers is now actively purchasing homes in all 24 markets where it previously operated," it said. Shares of Zillow ended the regular trading day up 1.2%.

ViacomCBS shares soar 6% premarket after earnings top estimates despite ad slowdown
ViacomCBS Inc. shares rose 6% premarket Thursday, after the company posted better-than-expected profit and sales for the second quarter, even as the coronavirus pandemic hurt advertising revenue. The company said it had net income of $478 million, or 77 cents a share, in the quarter, down from $971 million, or $1.57 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $1.25, ahead of the 95 cents FactSet consensus. Revenue fell 12% to $6.275 billion from $7.143 billion, also ahead of the FactSet consensus of $6.181 billion. "Despite the impact of COVID-19 on revenue in the quarter, we're successfully managing through the effects of the pandemic, reaffirming the strength of our combined operations," Chief Executive Bob Bakish said in a statement. Affiliate revenue rose 2%, while advertising revenue fell 27%, hurt as COVID-19 dampened global demand. Domestic streaming and digital video revenue rose 25% to $489 million. Content licensing revenue was flat, and theatrical revenue was "immaterial" with cinemas closed during the pandemic. Publishing revenue fell 8%, driven by lower print book sales. The company said it's on track with the rebrand and relaunch of CBS All Access in early 2021. Shares have fallen 38% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 3%.
