Earnings Outlook for LSI Industries


On Thursday, January 21, LSI Industries (NASDAQ:LYTS) will release its latest earnings report. Here is Benzinga's outlook for the company.

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

Based on LSI Industries management projections, analysts predict EPS of $0.06 on revenue of $76.00 million. In the same quarter last year, LSI Industries reported EPS of $0.06 on revenue of $82.38 million.

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

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 Wall Street consensus estimate for earnings would represent no change for the company. Sales would have fallen 7.74% from the same quarter last year. The company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q1 2020 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 0.05 -0.05 -0.07 0.08
EPS Actual 0.08 0.06 -0.04 0.06
Revenue Estimate 67.00 M 69.00 M 70.98 M 90.00 M
Revenue Actual 70.01 M 63.47 M 71.01 M 82.38 M

Stock Performance

Shares of LSI Industries were trading at $8.89 as of January 19. Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 33.11%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders should be content going into this earnings release.
