DarioHealth Earnings Preview

DarioHealth (NASDAQ:DRIO) announces its next round of earnings this Monday, May 17. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Monday's Q1 earnings announcement.

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

Analysts are expecting DarioHealth to report a loss of $1.04 per share. Revenue will likely be around $3.96 million, according to the consensus estimate. In the same quarter last year, DarioHealth posted a loss of $1.57 per share on sales of $1.67 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, earnings would be up 33.76%. Sales would be up 137.55% on a year-over-year basis. DarioHealth'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 -0.81 -0.68 -1.40 -0.75
EPS Actual -1.06 -0.71 -0.68 -1.57
Revenue Estimate 2.08 M 1.95 M 1.55 M 1.75 M
Revenue Actual 2.08 M 2.04 M 1.79 M 1.67 M
