Earnings Preview for Triton International


Triton International (NYSE:TRTN) will be releasing its next round of earnings this Tuesday, February 16. For all of the relevant information, here is your guide for Tuesday's Q4 earnings announcement.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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

Wall Street expects EPS of $1.43 and sales around $345.34 million. Triton International reported a per-share profit of $1.07 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $331.18 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 Tuesday, earnings would be up 33.64%. Revenue would be up 4.28% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate 1.06 0.78 0.94 1.10
EPS Actual 1.14 0.86 0.93 1.07
Revenue Estimate 335.30 M 309.50 M 323.83 M 334.70 M
Revenue Actual 327.76 M 321.40 M 321.47 M 331.18 M

Stock Performance

Shares of Triton International were trading at $50.59 as of February 11. Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 43.7%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders are probably happy going into this earnings release.

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