Earnings and Revenue
Based on management's projections, Pivotal Software analysts modeled for a loss of 4 cents per share on sales of $186.57 million.
In the same quarter last year, Pivotal Software posted an EPS loss of 6 cents on sales of $164.41 million. Sales would be up 13.48% on a year-over-year basis. Pivotal Software's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:
|Quarter||Q1 2020||Q4 2019||Q3 2019||Q2 2019||Q1 2019|
Over the last 52-week period, shares of Pivotal Software have declined 46.04%. Given that these returns are generally negative, long-term shareholders are probably a little upset going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already wary of 12-month losses prior to the announcement.
Analysts have adjusted their estimates higher for EPS and revenues over the past 90 days. Analysts seem to have settled on a Sell rating with Pivotal Software. The strength of this rating has dwindled over the past three months.
