Let’s dive into that earnings report below to see why investors in TMUS stock are celebrating today!

  • T-Mobile kicks off its earnings report with diluted earnings per share of 34 cents.
  • That’s a drop the company was expecting due to merger-related costs.
  • Even so, it still comes in above the 15 cents per share that Wall Street was expecting.
  • To go along with that, TMUS reported revenue of $20.79 billion.
  • That’s a jump from the company’s revenue of $14.18 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Unfortunately, it does slightly miss Wall Street’s estimate of $21.08 billion for the period.
  • Luckily, a strong outlook for 2022 is keeping that revenue miss from pulling TMUS stock down today.
  • The company’s guidance for 2022 includes postpaid net customer additions of 5 million to 5.5 million.
  • It’s also looking for merger synergies between $5 billion and $5.3 billion

Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, said the following in the earnings report boosting TMUS stock higher today.

“Our industry-leading year-end results – adding 1.2 million postpaid accounts and 5.5 million postpaid customers, extending Ultra Capacity 5G to 210 million people – show that the Un-carrier is experiencing the greatest growth momentum in wireless.”

With that strong earnings report comes heavy trading of TMUS stock. This has some 8 million shares on the move as of this writing. That’s a nice increase over the 5.3 million shares that trade on average daily.

TMUS stock is up 10.4% as of Thursday afternoon.
