Shares of Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) are up 6.5% in pre-open Thursday after the company reported better-than-expected Q3 results.

Comcast said it recorded EPS of $0.87 to beat the analyst estimate of $0.75. Revenue for the quarter came in at $30.3 billion versus the consensus estimate of $29.77 billion. The company also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 a share.

"I am pleased with our strong operating and financial results this quarter. Each of our businesses posted significant growth in Adjusted EBITDA, contributing to a double-digit increase in our Adjusted EPS,” Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation, said.

Goldman Sachs analyst Brett Feldman reiterated a Buy rating and a $63.00 per share price target on CMCSA after seeing “solid results across the board.”

“Based on recent underperformance in the stock, we expect a positive initial reaction to CMCSA’s strong 3Q21 results. We also believe the strength of CMCSA’s cable fundamentals is a positive read across for CHTR, which reports pre-market tomorrow (10/29),” the analyst said in a note.

Shares closed at $52.44 yesterday.
