Fubotv Inc (NYSE:FUBO) will release its first-quarter earnings results after the close on Thursday, May 5. FUBO has remained in negative earnings territory going into 2022 and Wall Street analysts anticipate that Fubotvs earnings will come in at -$0.66 per share for the upcoming earnings report.

Fubotv stock has lost a concerning 75% this year, and 82% in the past 12 months. The security was last seen down 3% to trade at $3.83, marking its lowest level since June 2019. The 10-day moving average has been guiding shares lower for the majority of April, while the 30-day acted as a ceiling in late-March. 

Analysts remain quite bullish, despite the recent price action. Of the nine in coverage, five call FUBO a "buy" or better, without a single "sell" to be seen. Plus, the 12-month consensus price target of $14.35 is a 273.9% premium to current levels. 

The streaming live sports company has finally reached an attractive valuation from a risk-reward standpoint. Although profitability is still nowhere near for the business, Fubotv stock’s price-sales ratio of 0.98 is very intriguing, given its top-line growth rate. For fiscal 2021, FUBO reported $638.35 million in revenues and $382.84 million in net losses, which indicated 193% revenue growth and a $187.67 million increase in net income. Fubotv is also estimated to increase revenues by 74.2% and its EPS by $0.20, from -$2.78 to -$2.58, for fiscal 2022. In addition, estimates have the company growing revenues by 40.20% and their EPS by $0.35, from -$2.58 to -$2.23, for fiscal 2023.

However, Fubotv stock continues to be a high-risk play, due to the competitive nature of the streaming industry and its relatively average balance sheet. FUBO currently holds $374.29 million in cash and $363.9 million in total debt, which could be a limiting factor for both their long-term growth rate and efforts towards achieving profitability.
