If those key numbers are better than expected, the earnings report could help the stock price rise. Conversely, if you miss it, the stock price may fall.

While management’s discussion of business conditions on earnings calls largely determines the sustainability of near-term price movements and future earnings projections, it is valuable to have handicap insight into the odds of a positive EPS surprise. there is.

Sachs’ Consensus Estimation

The company is expected to post a quarterly loss of $0.74 per share in its next report, representing a +6.3% year-over-year change.

Revenue is expected to be $29.5 million, up 33.2% from the year-ago quarter.

Estimated Modified Trend

Consensus EPS estimates for the quarter were revised higher by 14.81% to current levels over the past 30 days. This essentially reflects how the covering analysts collectively reassessed their original estimates for this period.

Investors should keep in mind that the direction of revisions to estimates by each analyst covered may not necessarily be reflected in overall changes.

Earnings whisper

By revising forecasts before a company announces its financial results, it becomes a clue to know the economy during the period when financial results are announced. This insight is at the core of our proprietary surprise prediction model, Zacks Earnings ESP (Expected Surprise Prediction).

Zacks Earnings ESP compares the most accurate estimate to the quarterly Zacks Consensus estimate. The Most Accurate Estimate is the latest version of the Zacks Consensus EPS Estimate. The idea here is that analysts who revise their estimates just before the earnings release have the most up-to-date information. This may be more accurate than previously predicted by analysts and others contributing to the consensus.

Therefore, positive or negative earnings ESP readings theoretically indicate a high probability of real earnings from the consensus estimate. However, the predictive power of the model is significant only for positive ESP measures.

A positive earnings ESP is a strong predictor of earnings beats, especially when combined with Zacks ranks 1 (strong buy), 2 (buy), or 3 (hold). Our research shows that this combination of stocks creates a positive surprise almost 70% of the time, and a solid Zacks rank actually increases the predictive power of the Earnings ESP.

Note that a negative Earnings ESP number does not indicate a loss of revenue. Our research shows that stocks with negative Earnings ESP numbers or Zacks Ranks of 4 (sell) or 5 (strong sell) do not, no matter how confident you are, will increase earnings. It has been shown to be difficult to predict.

For Seoul Entertainment’s chicken soup, the most accurate estimate is lower than the Zacks consensus estimate, suggesting analysts have been bearish on the company’s earnings outlook lately. This resulted in a revenue ESP of -14.29%.

On the other hand, the stock is currently ranked 3rd in the Zacks rank.

Therefore, it is difficult to ultimately predict that Soul Entertainment, Inc.’s Chicken Soup will exceed the consensus EPS estimate for this combination.

Does the earnings surprise history hold any clues?

Analysts often consider how well they have been able to match past consensus estimates when calculating estimates of a company’s future earnings. Therefore, it’s worth looking at the history of surprises to gauge their impact on future numbers.

In its last reported quarter, Seoul Entertainment’s Chicken Soup was expected to post a loss of $0.64 per share, but actually lost $0.92, a surprise of -43.75%.
