Amyris (NASDAQ:AMRS) announces its next round of earnings this Tuesday, March 02. Here is Benzinga's look at Amyris's Q4 earnings report.
Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share
Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.
Earnings And Revenue
Analysts covering Amyris have modeled for quarterly EPS loss of $0.09 on revenue of $69.98 million. In the same quarter last year, Amyris reported a loss per share of $0.38 on sales of $40.54 million.
Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important
Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.
The analyst consensus estimate would represent a 76.32% increase in the company's EPS figure. Sales would be up 72.64% from the year-ago period. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:
Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 355.93%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can be content going into this earnings release.
Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. Amyris is scheduled to hold the call at 09:00:00 ET and can be accessed here.
