Schlumberger SLB announces its next round of earnings this Friday, July 23. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Friday's Q2 earnings announcement.

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

Based on Schlumberger management projections, analysts predict EPS of $0.26 on revenue of $5.50 billion. In the same quarter last year, Schlumberger reported EPS of $0.05 on revenue of $5.36 billion.

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 post earnings in line with the consensus estimate when it reports Friday, EPS would be up 420.0%. Revenue would be up 2.69% from the year-ago period. Here is how the company's EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 0.19 0.17 0.12 -0.01
EPS Actual 0.21 0.22 0.16 0.05
Revenue Estimate 5.09 B 5.25 B 5.38 B 5.40 B
Revenue Actual 5.22 B 5.53 B 5.26 B 5.36 B
