Trinet Group (NYSE:TNET) announces its next round of earnings this Tuesday, February 16. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Tuesday's Q4 earnings announcement.

Net Income, Earnings, 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

Wall Street expects EPS of $0.25 and sales around $195.57 million. Trinet Group EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.84. Sales were $226.00 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.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be down 70.24%. Sales would have fallen 13.46% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the Trinet Group's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate 0.16 1.08 0.92 0.84
EPS Actual 0.56 2.03 1.41 0.84
Revenue Estimate 177.91 M 268.46 M 246.94 M 226.64 M
Revenue Actual 216.00 M 335.00 M 283.00 M 226.00 M

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 44.26%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can be content going into this earnings release.
