Chemours (NYSE: CC) unveils its next round of earnings this Tuesday, November 03. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for the earnings announcement.

Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings and especially earnings per share (EPS) are useful measures of a company's profitability. Total earnings, which is also referred to as net income, equals total revenue minus total expenses. EPS equals to net income divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Earnings And Revenue

Chemours earnings will be near $0.31 per share on sales of $1.19 billion, according to analysts. Chemours EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.59. Sales were $1.39 billion.

Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important

Analysts who cover this company will publish forward-looking estimates of its revenue and EPS each quarter. Averaging together every EPS and revenue prediction that each analyst makes about a company in a quarter yields the "consensus estimates." A company posting earnings or revenue above or below the consensus estimate is known as an "earnings surprise" and may move the stock by a considerable margin.

The analyst consensus estimate would represent a 47.46% decline in the company's EPS figure. Sales would be down 14.39% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020 Q3 2019
EPS Estimate 0.10 0.47 0.42 0.59
EPS Actual 0.18 0.71 0.56 0.59
Revenue Estimate 1.09 B 1.33 B 1.35 B 1.37 B
Revenue Actual 1.09 B 1.30 B 1.35 B 1.39 B
