Bel Fuse (NASDAQ:BELFB) releases its next round of earnings this Thursday, February 18. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to Bel Fuse's Q4 earnings report.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Bel Fuse EPS will likely be near $0.14 while revenue will be around $114.90 million, according to analysts. Bel Fuse reported a per-share loss of $0.3 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $115.13 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

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.
