Earnings Preview: Mondelez International


Mondelez International (NASDAQ:MDLZ) announces its next round of earnings this Tuesday, April 27. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Tuesday'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

Mondelez International EPS will likely be near $0.69 while revenue will be around $7.01 billion, according to analysts. In the same quarter last year, Mondelez International reported EPS of $0.69 on revenue of $6.71 billion.

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 0% decrease in the company's earnings. Revenue would be up 4.52% from the year-ago period. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate 0.66 0.62 0.56 0.66
EPS Actual 0.67 0.63 0.63 0.69
Revenue Estimate 7.16 B 6.48 B 5.92 B 6.61 B
Revenue Actual 7.30 B 6.67 B 5.91 B 6.71 B
