IntriCon (NASDAQ: IIN) unveils its next round of earnings this Monday, November 09. Get prepared with Benzinga's ultimate preview for IntriCon's Q3 earnings.
Net Income, Earnings, 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
Wall Street expects EPS of $0.05 and sales around $24.54 million. IntriCon EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.03. Revenue was $26.89 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.
If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Monday, EPS would be up 266.67%. Sales would be down 8.75% from the year-ago period. IntriCon's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:
Shares of IntriCon were trading at $12.02 as of November 05. Over the last 52-week period, shares are down 34.5%. Given that these returns are generally negative, long-term shareholders are probably down going into this earnings release.
Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. IntriCon is scheduled to hold the call at 17:00:00 ET and can be accessed here.
