Nautilus (NYSE: NLS) releases its next round of earnings this Monday, November 09. Get the latest predictions in Benzinga's essential guide to the company's Q3 earnings report.
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
Based on management's projections, Nautilus analysts model for earnings of $0.32 per share on sales of $115.67 million. In the same quarter last year, Nautilus announced EPS of $0.36 on revenue of $61.71 million.
Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important
Analysts who cover this company will publish forward-looking estimates of its revenue and EPS each quarter. Averaging together every EPS and revenue prediction that each analyst makes about a company in a quarter yields the "consensus estimates." A company posting earnings or revenue above or below the consensus estimate is known as an "earnings surprise" and may move the stock by a considerable margin.
If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Monday, EPS would be up 188.89%. Sales would be up 87.45% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:
Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 1601.78%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can be content going into this earnings release.
Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. Nautilus is scheduled to hold the call at 16:30:00 ET and can be accessed here.
