Roper Technologies's Earnings: A Preview

Roper Technologies ROP releases its next round of earnings this Friday, July 23. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to Roper Technologies's Q2 earnings report.

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 covering Roper Technologies modeled for quarterly EPS of $3.67 on revenue of $1.58 billion. In the same quarter last year, Roper Technologies posted EPS of $2.94 on sales of $1.31 billion.

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.

The Wall Street consensus estimate for earnings would represent a 24.83% increase for the company. Revenue would be up 20.98% from the same quarter last year. Roper Technologies's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 3.32 3.48 3.04 2.67
EPS Actual 3.60 3.56 3.17 2.94
Revenue Estimate 1.51 B 1.53 B 1.35 B 1.25 B
Revenue Actual 1.53 B 1.51 B 1.37 B 1.31 B
