CECO Environmental (NASDAQ:CECE) releases its next round of earnings this Wednesday, March 03. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to CECO Environmental'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

Sell-side analysts expect CECO Environmental's EPS to be near $0.1 on sales of $78.43 million. CECO Environmental reported a per-share profit of $0.27 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $89.41 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Analysts who cover this company will publish forward-looking estimates of its revenue and EPS each quarter. Averaging together every EPS and revenue prediction that each analyst makes about a company in a quarter yields the "consensus estimates." A company posting earnings or revenue above or below the consensus estimate is known as an "earnings surprise" and may move the stock by a considerable margin.
