Earnings Preview: BWX Technologies


BWX Technologies BWXT will be releasing its next round of earnings this Monday, August 02. For all of the relevant information, here is your guide for 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

BWX Technologies earnings will be near $0.72 per share on sales of $522.68 million, according to analysts. BWX Technologies reported a per-share profit of $0.71 when it published results during the same quarter last year. Sales in that period totaled $504.52 million.

Why Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises Are Important

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.

The Wall Street consensus estimate for earnings would represent a 1.41% increase for the company. Revenue would be up 3.6% on a year-over-year basis. BWX 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 0.71 0.71 0.68 0.56
EPS Actual 0.73 0.74 0.79 0.71
