Earnings Preview: Transcat


On Tuesday, July 27, Transcat TRNS will release its latest earnings report. Here is Benzinga's outlook for the company.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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

Transcat EPS is expected to be around $0.25, according to sell-side analysts. Sales will likely be near $44.42 million. In the same quarter last year, Transcat reported earnings per share of $0.11 on sales of $38.90 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Analysts who cover this company will publish forward-looking estimates of its revenue and EPS each quarter. Averaging together every EPS and revenue prediction that each analyst makes about a company in a quarter yields the "consensus estimates." A company posting earnings or revenue above or below the consensus estimate is known as an "earnings surprise" and may move the stock by a considerable margin.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Tuesday, EPS would be up 127.27%. Revenue would be up 14.18% 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 2021 Q2 2021 Q1 2021
EPS Estimate 0.32 0.19 0.17 -0.03
EPS Actual 0.42 0.23 0.27 0.11
Revenue Estimate 46.18 M 42.67 M 40.29 M 39.44 M
Revenue Actual 48.76 M 44.06 M 41.61 M 38.90 M
