MarketAxess Holdings's Earnings Outlook


MarketAxess Holdings (NASDAQ:MKTX) announces its next round of earnings this Thursday, April 22. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Thursday's Q1 earnings announcement.

Net Income, Earnings, 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

Wall Street analysts see MarketAxess Holdings reporting earnings of $2.12 per share on revenue of $193.10 million. In the same quarter last year, MarketAxess Holdings posted EPS of $1.96 on sales of $168.98 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.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be up 8.16%. Revenue would be up 14.28% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the MarketAxess Holdings's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate 1.83 1.74 2.12 1.90
EPS Actual 1.91 1.78 2.20 1.96
Revenue Estimate 168.62 M 161.42 M 181.29 M 167.44 M
Revenue Actual 171.35 M 164.01 M 184.79 M 168.98 M
