Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings And Revenue

Wall Street analysts see Helen Of Troy reporting earnings of $3.02 per share on revenue of $551.15 million. In the same quarter last year, Helen Of Troy announced EPS of $3.12 on revenue of $474.74 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.

The Wall Street estimate would represent a 3.21% decline in the company's earnings. Revenue would be up 16.1% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020 Q3 2020
EPS Estimate 2.32 1.49 1.64 2.50
EPS Actual 3.77 2.53 1.88 3.12
