SolarEdge Technologies (NASDAQ:SEDG) unveils its next round of earnings this Tuesday, February 16. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the earnings announcement.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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

Analysts expect SolarEdge Technologies earnings of $0.86 per share. Revenue will likely be around $356.25 million, according to the consensus estimate. SolarEdge Technologies EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $1.65. Revenue was $418.22 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 post earnings in line with the consensus estimate when it reports Tuesday, EPS would be down 47.88%. Sales would be down 14.82% from the same quarter last year. The company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:
