MaxLinear's Earnings Outlook

MaxLinear MXL announces its next round of earnings this Wednesday, July 28. Here is Benzinga's look at MaxLinear's Q2 earnings report.

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

Analysts predict MaxLinear will report earnings of $0.5 per share on revenue of $204.75 million. MaxLinear earnings in the same period a year ago was $0.09 per share. Quarterly sales came in at $65.22 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 match the consensus estimate when it reports Wednesday, earnings would be up 455.56%. Revenue would be up 213.94% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 0.50 0.36 0.29 0.08
EPS Actual 0.55 0.39 0.32 0.09
Revenue Estimate 204.63 M 190.34 M 153.55 M 64.42 M
Revenue Actual 209.36 M 194.72 M 156.63 M 65.22 M
