What Are Earnings, Net Income, 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 analysts see Afya reporting earnings of $0.2 per share on revenue of $73.87. In the same quarter last year, Afya reported earnings per share of $0.12 on sales of $51.09 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 Thursday, EPS would be up 66.67%. Revenue would be down 100.0% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has compared to analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q1 2021 Q4 2020 Q3 2020 Q2 2020
EPS Estimate 0.29 0.28 0.23 0.12
EPS Actual 0.31 0.17 0.15 0.12
Revenue Estimate 74.88 M 60.56 M 59.43 M 46.18 M
Revenue Actual 72.17 M 63.94 M 57.55 M 51.09 M
