Pampa Energia S.A. PAM is slated to report third-quarter 2019 results on Nov 11, after market close. The company came up with a positive earnings surprise of 152.4% in the last reported quarter.
Let’s see how things have shaped up before the upcoming earnings announcement.
Factors to Consider
Despite an expected increase in customer volumes, lower demand from Pampa Energia’s commercial and industrial customers is likely to have lowered electricity distribution volumes in the third quarter. In addition, ongoing weakness in oil prices might have lowered contribution from the Oil and Gas segment in the third quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues and earnings per share is pegged at $855.7 million and ($2.06), indicating 1.5% and 31.6% improvement, respectively, from the year-ago reported figures.
