On Monday, February 08, i3 Verticals (NASDAQ:IIIV) will release its latest earnings report. Benzinga's outlook for i3 Verticals is included in the following report.
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
Analysts predict i3 Verticals will report earnings of $0.21 per share on revenue of $41.13 million. In the same quarter last year, i3 Verticals reported earnings per share of $0.24 on revenue of $41.11 million.
Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important
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.
If the company were to report earnings in line when it publishes results Monday, earnings would be down 12.5%. Sales would be up 0.05% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:
Shares of i3 Verticals were trading at $31.37 as of February 04. Over the last 52-week period, shares are down 11.2%. Given that these returns are generally negative, long-term shareholders are likely unhappy going into this earnings release.
Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. i3 Verticals is scheduled to hold the call at 08:30:00 ET and can be accessed here.
