Earnings Outlook For Veru


On Thursday, August 12, Veru (NASDAQ:VERU) will report its last quarter's earnings. Here is Benzinga's preview of the company's release.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.

Earnings And Revenue

Analysts covering Veru have modeled for quarterly EPS loss of $-0.06 on revenue of $14.10 million. Veru EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.05. Sales were $10.32 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 post earnings in line with the consensus estimate when it reports Thursday, EPS would be down 20.0%. Sales would be up 36.6% on a year-over-year basis. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q2 2021 Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020
EPS Estimate -0.04 -0.06 -0.04 -0.03
EPS Actual -0.04 -0.02 0.03 -0.05
Revenue Estimate 14.29 M 10.57 M 10.63 M 10.97 M
Revenue Actual 13.34 M 14.62 M 11.75 M 10.32 M
