Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.

Earnings And Revenue

Analysts expect ESCO Technologies earnings of $0.76 per share. Revenue will likely be around $188.71 million, according to the consensus estimate. In the same quarter last year, ESCO Technologies reported EPS of $1.09 on revenue of $236.66 million.

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 30.28% decrease in the company's earnings. Sales would be down 20.26% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the ESCO Technologies's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:
