Affiliated Managers Group Inc. AMG is slated to report third-quarter 2022 results on Nov 7, before the opening bell. Its earnings and revenues are expected to have declined from the year-ago reported figure.
In the last reported quarter, the company’s earnings outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results benefited from an improvement in revenues, partly offset by higher expenses and a decline in the assets under management (AUM) balance.
The company boasts an impressive earnings surprise history. Its earnings surpassed the consensus estimate in each of the trailing four quarters, the average beat being 3.79%.
