Earnings Surprises

For 5 trading days after an Earnings report, the EPS icon in the Watchlist will turn green, red, or black depending on whether actual Earnings beat, missed, or matched the consensus estimate. If there was an Earnings Surprise, you will see a Surprise icon (“!“).

Hover over an EPS icon for detail about the completed Earnings report, including:
  • Report Date
  • Fiscal Quarter reported
  • Quarterly EPS reported & change vs. 1 year ago
  • Quarterly Revenue reported & change vs. 1 year ago
  • Consensus Estimate
  • Amount by which the reported EPS missed or beat the estimate.
