What's in the Offing for DTE Energy (DTE) in Q2 Earnings?

·3 min read

DTE Energy Company DTE is slated to report second-quarter 2022 results on Jul 28 before the opening bell.

Its bottom line outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the trailing four quarters, the average surprise being 8.97%.

Factors to Note

During the second quarter, DTE Energy’s service territories witnessed warmer-than-normal temperatures. This, in turn, is likely to have boosted the electricity demand for cooling purposes among the company’s customers. Such weather patterns are expected to have contributed to the company’s revenues.

However, DTE’s service territories experienced significant precipitation levels in the second quarter, resulting in wet weather conditions. This might have lowered the demand for electricity among its customers, thus impacting the overall revenues of the company in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter revenues is pegged at $3.13 billion, suggesting a decline of 2.9% from the year-ago quarter.

From the cost perspective, the higher rate-based cost and increased operating and maintenance expenses are likely to have dented the bottom line of the company in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earningsis pegged at $1 per share, indicating a decline of 41.2% from the prior-year reported figure.
