On Tuesday, March 16, Designer Brands (NYSE:DBI) will release its latest earnings report. Here is Benzinga's outlook for the company.

Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Based on management's projections, Designer Brands analysts modeled for a loss of $0.68 per share on sales of $623.77 million. Designer Brands's loss in the same period a year ago was $0.05 per share. Quarterly sales came in at $829.62 million.

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

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.

If the company were to post earnings in line with the consensus estimate when it reports Tuesday, EPS would be down 1260.0%. Revenue would have fallen 24.81% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:
