Quanterix (NASDAQ:QTRX) releases its next round of earnings this Tuesday, March 02. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to Quanterix's Q4 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

Analysts are expecting Quanterix to report a loss of $0.33 per share. Revenue will likely be around $23.44 million, according to the consensus estimate. In the same quarter last year, Quanterix posted a loss of $0.39 per share on sales of $15.92 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.
