Price and Consensus
This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.10 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +150%. Revenues are expected to be $18.61 million, up 39.4% from the year-ago quarter.
Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.
For EDAP TMS S.A., the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions.
