Eversource Energy ES is slated to release third-quarter 2020 financial results on Nov 4. The utility delivered an earnings surprise of 1.3% in the last reported quarter.

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

Factors to Consider

Eversource’s third-quarter earnings are expected to have benefited from regulatory commission-approved distribution revenue decoupling mechanisms. Strong demand from residential customers is expected to have offset the slow recovery of demand from industrial and commercial customers in the to-be-reported quarter.

The storms that lashed Eversource’s service territories during the third quarter disrupted operations and are likely to have hurt its performance.

Expectation

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues and earnings per share is pegged at $2.27 billion and $1.02, indicating 4.1% and 4.08% growth, respectively, from the year-ago reported figures.
