Simpson Manufacturing Co (NYSE:SSD) releases its next round of earnings this Monday, February 08. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to Simpson Manufacturing Co's Q4 earnings report.

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

Simpson Manufacturing Co EPS is expected to be around $0.66, according to sell-side analysts. Sales will likely be near $276.07 million. In the same quarter last year, Simpson Manufacturing Co posted EPS of $0.63 on sales of $262.51 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.
