Earnings And Revenue

Analysts covering Plexus modeled for quarterly EPS of $1.09 on revenue of $832.12 million. In the same quarter last year, Plexus reported earnings per share of $1.0 on revenue of $852.41 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 9.0% increase in the company's EPS figure. Sales would have fallen 2.38% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:
