Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the announcement.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its first-quarter earnings per share of 18 cents has witnessed one upward and no downward movement in the past 30 days. This suggests year-over-year earnings growth of 157.1%.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its revenues in the March quarter is pegged at $54.1 million, suggesting year-over-year earnings growth of almost 37%.
Factors to Consider
In the March quarter, crude oil and natural prices increased significantly compared to the prior-year quarter. Healthier commodity prices are likely to have aided Ring Energy since the company is a leading upstream energy player with a strong footprint in the prolific Permian Basin.
