Earnings Outlook For HubSpot

HubSpot HUBS releases its next round of earnings this Wednesday, August 04. Here is Benzinga's essential guide to HubSpot'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

Sell-side analysts expect HubSpot's EPS to be near $0.32 on sales of $296.03 million. In the same quarter last year, HubSpot announced EPS of $0.34 on revenue of $203.61 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 Wednesday, earnings would be down 5.88%. Sales would be up 45.39% from the year-ago period. In comparison to analyst estimates in the past, here is how the company's reported EPS stacks up:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 0.29 0.23 0.13 0.24
EPS Actual 0.31 0.40 0.28 0.34
