Earnings Outlook For Globant


On Thursday, May 13, Globant (NYSE:GLOB) will report its last quarter's earnings. Here is Benzinga's preview of the company's release.

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 expects EPS of $0.8 and sales around $259.30 million. Globant reported a per-share profit of $0.64 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $191.57 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 Thursday, earnings would be up 25.0%. Sales would be up 35.35% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q4 2021 Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020
EPS Estimate 0.67 0.58 0.48 0.62
EPS Actual 0.70 0.60 0.51 0.64
Revenue Estimate 222.34 M 203.76 M 179.90 M 188.79 M
Revenue Actual 232.64 M 207.22 M 182.71 M 191.57 M
