American Financial (AFG) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
Positive earnings surprises - when profits beat consensus analyst estimates - can have a huge impact on a company's share price. These surprises show that management can both manage and exceed expectations, not to mention "beats" often lead to share-price gains as investors realize Wall Street might be underappreciating these overachievers.For instance, a FactSet Research study examining Standard & Poor's 500-stock index components from Q4 2008 to Q1 2018 found that companies that posted positive EPS surprises gained 1.24% on average in the four-day window surrounding their earnings announcement.Far more significant was what earnings surprises portended for long-term performance. Golden Capital and FactSet Research tracked S&P; 500 companies over 15 years and found that those that reported positive EPS surprises experienced bigger share price gains than those that had not - even in cases where the stock's short-term response to positive surprises was minimal. While the S&P; 500 more than tripled over the study's timeline, positive surprisers more than quadrupled.The lesson: Companies that properly manage expectations and can "beat the Street" regularly tend to provide stronger long-term performance - even if the initial response isn't strongly bullish.Here are 19 great stocks that have delivered positive earnings surprises averaging 10% or better over the past four quarters. Many of these stocks are off the beaten path, most of these stocks have generated double-digit annual earnings growth over the past five years, and all produced double-digit EPS gains in their most recent fiscal year.

In December 2018, American Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE:AFG) announced its earnings update. Overall, analysts seem fairly confident, as a 46% increase in profits is expected in t...
Progressive (NYSE:PGR) reports earnings Tuesday before the bell. The Mayfield Village, Ohio-based insurer comes off an unusual earnings miss in January and a bizarre lack of activity in recent weeks. After about two and a half years of mostly steady increases, PGR stock has become unusually stagnant. This low level of volatility makes the need for any news that can move PGR critical for attracting investors.Source: meteo via FlickrFor Q1, Wall Street estimates PGR will earn $1.37 per share on a consensus basis. If this estimate holds, it means profits will rise by 6.2% year-over-year. Progressive earned $1.29 per share in the first quarter of 2018. Analysts also predict $9.19 billion in revenue for the quarter. This would come in 15.3% higher than year-ago levels when the company brought in $7.97 billion.Investors have good reason to pay close attention to this report. PGR stock tends to beat earnings in most cases. However, whether the company beat estimates in January depends on how one defines earnings.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks That Are Screaming Buys Right Now If counting net realized losses on securities of $572.2 million, profits came in at only 44 cents per share, well off estimates of $1.01 per share. The company earned $1.24 per share when not counting the unusually high losses on securities. Investors will likely watch earnings to see if this massive net realized loss amounts to a one-time occurrence or if it happens again. PGR Stock Defined By Its Lack of ActivityEven more importantly, traders will look for something, perhaps anything, that will inspire movement in PGR stock. Since Feb. 20, Progressive stock has barely registered a pulse. Since that day, it has traded in a tight range between $71.39 per share and $73.78 per share.Progressive also hit a near-term peak of $73.69 per share in early November. However, even when considering a likely double top, such stagnation seems unusual. PGR stock rose more than 27% from its December lows until price movements nearly came to a halt.However, other insurance stocks have stood still at this time. Allstate (NYSE:ALL) and American Financial Group (NYSE:AFG) stock have shown a similar trading pattern. Although Travelers (NYSE:TRV) has moved higher since February, it too began to stand still in April. Traders May Look to Forward GuidanceLooking for any news that will move the stock, traders may also focus on the forward guidance. In this area, Wall Street has seen some reason for mildly bullish sentiment. Earnings estimates for this quarter have risen by 8 cents over the last three months. Profit predictions for the next quarter and the year have also increased.Still, it will probably need news of some kind to see significant movement. The current fundamentals offer little that can move PGR. Earnings estimates place the forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio at around 13.7. That valuation appears reasonable. However, the estimated profit growth of 0.4% this year and 6.2% in 2020 gives investors little reason to buy PGR. Moreover, a dividend yield of 0.55% will likely not inspire new investors. * 7 Energy Stocks to Buy as Oil Booms Should You Buy Into Earnings?PGR stock needs this quarterly report to inspire some movement in the stock. After a dramatic recovery from the December lows, the stock persisted with little change for nearly two months.Surprise news from the earnings report could potentially break PGR out of its tight range. However, the P/E ratio, growth rate and dividend payout offer little reason to either buy or short PGR stock.Also, even if the report catalyzes the equity, current valuations give little incentive to either buy or sell. For this reason, not only will Progressive stock need to move to attract investors, but it will also have to move enough to offer a value proposition.I do not see that level of price action occurring at this time. Hence, regardless of whether one is a bull or a bear, PGR stock looks like a stock to avoid for now.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
