Acadia Healthcare Co ACHC announces its next round of earnings this Monday, August 02. Here is Benzinga's everything-that-matters guide for this Monday'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

Wall Street expects EPS of $0.63 and sales around $560.83 million. Acadia Healthcare Co EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.54. Revenue was $750.31 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.

The Wall Street estimate would represent a 16.67% increase in the company's earnings. Revenue would be down 25.25% on a year-over-year basis. The company'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 0.45 0.64 0.54 0.40
EPS Actual 0.47 1.13 0.68 0.54
Revenue Estimate 545.24 M 748.57 M 800.24 M 762.49 M
Revenue Actual 551.20 M 541.28 M 833.30 M 750.31 M
