Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated PEG, better known as PSEG, is scheduled to report third-quarter 2021 results on Nov 2, before the opening bell.

In the last reported quarter, the company’s earnings matched the estimates. PSEG has a trailing four-quarter negative earnings surprise of 3.20%, on average.

Factors to Note

During major parts of the third quarter, Public Service Enterprise’s service territory areas experienced warmer-than-normal temperature, which may have boosted electricity demand for cooling purposes. This is likely to have benefited the company’s performance in the to-be-reported quarter.

Withthe economy gradually gaining momentum, PSEG may have witnessed an uptick in demand from commercial and industrial space. This is likely to have favored the to-be-reported quarter's performance.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues is pegged at $2.66 billion, suggesting growth of 12.1% from the year-ago quarter.

The various capital investment programs initiated by the company are likely to have contributed to the performance in the quarter to be reported. However, seasonal price impact of recontracting might have weighed on the third-quarter bottom line.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings is pegged at 92 cents per share, indicating a decline of 4.2% from the prior-year reported figure.
