A Preview Of Axogen's Earnings


Axogen (NASDAQ:AXGN) announces its next round of earnings this Monday, February 22. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Monday'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

Axogen's per-share loss will be near $0.12 on sales of $29.83 million, according to Wall Street analysts. Axogen reported a loss of $0.1 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $28.16 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 20.0% decrease in the company's earnings. Revenue would be up 5.92% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate -0.16 -0.38 -0.15 -0.09
EPS Actual 0.04 -0.15 -0.19 -0.10
Revenue Estimate 24.52 M 13.15 M 26.19 M 29.23 M
Revenue Actual 33.43 M 22.12 M 24.26 M 28.16 M

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 34.18%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can relax 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. Axogen is scheduled to hold the call at 16:30:00 ET and can be accessed here.
