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

Earnings And Revenue
Wall Street expects an EPS loss of $0.2 and sales around $3.80 million. In the same quarter last year, OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited - Common Shares reported a loss per share of $0.02 on sales of $114.31 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.
If the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be down 900.0%. Revenue would be down 96.68% from the year-ago period. OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited - Common Shares's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past like this:
|Quarter||Q4 2021||Q3 2020||Q2 2020||Q1 2020|
|Revenue Estimate||3.46 M||2.40 M||230.00 K||120.43 M|
|Revenue Actual||3.83 M||1.79 M||998.00 K||114.31 M|
Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 90.5%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can relax going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already enjoying 12-month gains prior to the announcement.
