Share:

CryoPort (NASDAQ:CYRX) will be releasing its next round of earnings this Monday, March 01. For all of the relevant information, here is your guide for Monday's Q4 earnings announcement.

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

Sell-side analysts are expecting CryoPort's loss per share to be near $0.11 on sales of $43.95 million. In the same quarter last year, CryoPort reported a loss per share of $0.05 on sales of $9.24 million.

Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important

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.

The analyst consensus estimate would represent a 120.0% decrease in the company's earnings. Revenue would be up 375.55% from the year-ago period. The company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate -0.12 -0.11 -0.05 -0.07
EPS Actual -0.29 -0.15 -0.11 -0.05
Revenue Estimate 10.78 M 8.93 M 9.76 M 9.34 M
Revenue Actual 11.17 M 9.39 M 9.77 M 9.24 M

Stock Performance

Shares of CryoPort were trading at $59.6 as of February 25. Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 239.77%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders should be satisfied going into this earnings release.
