IDEX (NYSE:IEX) announces its next round of earnings this Wednesday, February 03. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Wednesday's Q4 earnings announcement.

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 covering IDEX modeled for quarterly EPS of $1.31 on revenue of $602.14 million. In the same quarter last year, IDEX reported EPS of $1.33 on revenue of $606.00 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.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be down 1.5%. Sales would be down 0.64% on a year-over-year basis. In comparison to analyst estimates in the past, here is how the company's reported EPS stacks up:
