Factors to Consider

CBOE Global’s third-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from increased volatility, which drove trading volume and continued growth in recurring non-transaction revenues as well as the contribution from acquisitions.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter transaction fees is pegged at $430 million.



Market data revenues are likely to have been aided by the Bats, MATCHNow, BIDS Trading, Hanweck and FT Options acquisitions, improved Cboe Information Solutions, and a comprehensive suite of data solutions, analytics and indices. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter market data fees and access fees is pegged at $66 million and $69 million, indicating growth of 10% and 13.1%, respectively, from the prior-year quarter reported figure.



Expenses are likely to have increased given several ongoing investments in systems hardware and software.
