Yext (NYSE:YEXT) unveils its next round of earnings this Thursday, December 03. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the earnings announcement.
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 are expecting Yext's loss per share to be near $0.08 on sales of $87.19 million. In the same quarter last year, Yext posted EPS of $0.19 on sales of $76.37 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.
If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be up 57.89%. Sales would be up 14.17% on a year-over-year basis. In comparison to analyst estimates in the past, here is how the company's reported EPS stacks up:
Shares of Yext were trading at $19.29 as of December 01. Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 13.07%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders should be satisfied going into this earnings release.
