On Thursday, March 18, Duluth Holdings (NASDAQ:DLTH) will release its latest earnings report. Benzinga's report can help you figure out the ins and outs of the earnings release.

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

Duluth Holdings earnings will be near $0.72 per share on sales of $274.07 million, according to analysts. Duluth Holdings EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.75. Sales were $259.65 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 Wall Street estimate would represent a 4.0% decline in the company's earnings. Revenue would be up 5.55% from the same quarter last year. 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 -0.02 0.02 -0.42 0.78
EPS Actual 0.03 0.18 -0.42 0.75
Revenue Estimate 136.11 M 118.55 M 94.00 M 262.68 M
Revenue Actual 135.53 M 137.38 M 109.92 M 259.65 M
