Evergy, Inc. EVRG is set to release third-quarter 2021 results on Nov 3, before the market opens. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 14.86%.

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

Factors to Consider

Consistent growth in demand from the residential space and improving demand from the commercial and industrial group are likely to benefit Evergy’s September-quarter results. The company’s initiatives to reduce operation and maintenance expenses and enhance the reliability of its services through its ongoing Transformation Plan are likely to boost results in the third quarter.

Expectation

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings per share is pegged at $1.68, indicating a 2.9% decline from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

Quantitative Model Prediction

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