Spectrum Brands Holdings Earnings Preview


Spectrum Brands Holdings (NYSE:SPB) announces its next round of earnings this Friday, February 05. Here is Benzinga's look at Spectrum Brands Holdings's Q1 earnings report.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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

Spectrum Brands Holdings EPS will likely be near $0.76 while revenue will be around $1.01 billion, according to analysts. In the same quarter last year, Spectrum Brands Holdings reported EPS of $0.2 on revenue of $871.50 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.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Friday, EPS would be up 280.0%. Sales would be up 15.89% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate 1.24 0.93 0.42 0.33
EPS Actual 1.72 1.36 0.91 0.20
Revenue Estimate 1.02 B 928.26 M 875.25 M 900.21 M
Revenue Actual 1.17 B 984.30 M 937.80 M 871.50 M

Stock Performance

For a full 12 months, the return has risen by 32.07%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders are probably relaxed going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already enjoying 12-month gains prior to the announcement.

Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. Spectrum Brands Holdings is scheduled to hold the call at 08:30:00 ET and can be accessed here.
