Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important
Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.
The analyst consensus estimate would represent a 205.56% decline in the company's EPS figure. Sales would be down 23.8% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:
Shares of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers were trading at $30.67 as of March 01. Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 25.51%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders are probably satisfied going into this earnings release.
