Share:

On Friday, May 07, Ampco-Pittsburgh (NYSE:AP) will release its latest earnings report. Here is Benzinga's outlook for the company.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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

Wall Street analysts see Ampco-Pittsburgh reporting earnings of $0.07 per share on sales of $84.90 million. In the same quarter last year, Ampco-Pittsburgh announced EPS of $0.28 on revenue of $91.06 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

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.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Friday, earnings would be down 75.0%. Revenue would be down 6.77% from the same quarter last year. The company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate 0.05 0.06 -0.48 0.11
EPS Actual 0.12 0.07 0.05 0.28
Revenue Estimate 86.10 M 78.10 M 72.10 M 103.30 M
Revenue Actual 87.03 M 75.67 M 74.78 M 91.06 M
