Intellicheck's Earnings Outlook


Intellicheck (NASDAQ:IDN) releases its next round of earnings this Tuesday, March 16. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to Intellicheck's Q4 earnings report.

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

Intellicheck EPS will likely be near $0.02 while revenue will be around $3.33 million, according to analysts. Intellicheck earnings in the same period a year ago was $0.01 per share. Quarterly sales came in at $2.90 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 100.0% increase in the company's EPS figure. Sales would be up 14.99% from the same quarter last year. 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 -0.02 -0.05 -0.03 -0.03
EPS Actual 0 -0.05 0 0.01
