On Tuesday, November 24, American Woodmark (NASDAQ: AMWD) will release its latest earnings report. Benzinga's outlook for American Woodmark 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

Sell-side analysts expect American Woodmark's EPS to be near $1.85 on sales of $448.06 million. In the same quarter last year, American Woodmark announced EPS of $1.84 on revenue of $428.02 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.
