A Preview Of Transocean's Earnings


Transocean (NYSE:RIG) unveils its next round of earnings this Monday, May 03. Get prepared with Benzinga's ultimate preview for Transocean's Q1 earnings.

Net Income, Earnings, And Earnings Per Share

Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.

Earnings And Revenue

Transocean EPS will likely be near $0.18 while revenue will be around $645.71 million, according to analysts. In the same quarter last year, Transocean reported EPS of $0.3 on revenue of $759.00 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 40.0% increase in the company's earnings. Revenue would be down 14.93% from the year-ago period. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate -0.19 -0.13 -0.27 -0.29
EPS Actual -0.34 -0.11 0 -0.30
Revenue Estimate 699.08 M 768.28 M 773.88 M 802.99 M
