Arbor Realty Trust's Earnings Outlook


Arbor Realty Trust (NYSE:ABR) announces its next round of earnings this Friday, May 07. Here is Benzinga's look at Arbor Realty Trust's Q1 earnings report.

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

Wall Street analysts see Arbor Realty Trust reporting earnings of $0.43 per share on revenue of $46.35 million. In the same quarter last year, Arbor Realty Trust reported earnings per share of $0.31 on revenue of $38.54 million.

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.

If the company were to report earnings in line when it publishes results Friday, quarterly profit would be up 38.71%. Revenue would be up 20.25% on a year-over-year basis. 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 0.45 0.33 0.27 0.25
EPS Actual 0.49 0.50 0.46 0.31
Revenue Estimate 42.55 M 42.27 M 34.50 M 33.50 M
Revenue Actual 46.11 M 43.81 M 41.78 M 38.54 M
