What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Analysts covering KNOT Offshore Partners modeled for quarterly EPS of $0.62 on revenue of $70.10 million. In the same quarter last year, KNOT Offshore Partners reported EPS of $0.73 on revenue of $70.08 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.

The analyst consensus estimate would represent a 15.07% decline in the company's EPS figure. Sales would be up 0.03% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate 0.57 0.57 0.50 0.56
