Earnings Outlook For Terex

Benzinga Insights
·2 min read

Terex (NYSE: TEX) unveils its next round of earnings this Tuesday, October 27. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the earnings announcement.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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, Terex analysts model for earnings of $0.02 per share on sales of $744.63 million. In the same quarter last year, Terex reported earnings per share of $0.82 on revenue of $1.02 billion.

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 97.56% decrease in the company's earnings. Revenue would be down 27.35% from the year-ago period. Terex's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:
