Energy Transfer LP ET is scheduled to release third-quarter 2021 results on Nov 3 after the market closes. In the last reported quarter, this oil and gas midstream firm delivered a negative surprise of 16.7%.

Let’s discuss the factors that are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.

Factors to Note

The firm’s third-quarter earnings are likely to have benefited predominantly from fee-based contracts with drillers. Energy Transfer’s third-quarter earnings are also expected to have gained from the completion of organic projects like the Bakken pipeline optimization project and others, which in turn increased pipeline transportation capacity.

With Energy Transfer's pipelines spread across every major production basin, an increase in hydrocarbon production must have boosted the demand for midstream services and thereby earnings.

Expectation

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings and revenues is pegged at 26 cents per unit and $14.96 billion, respectively. Revenue estimates indicate an increase of 50.3%, while earnings per unit estimates suggest a decline of 13.3% from the year-ago reported figure.

Our proven model doesn’t conclusively predict an earnings beat for Energy Transfer this time around. The combination of a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) increases the chances of an earnings beat. That is not the case here as you see below.
