IBM (NYSE:IBM) will be releasing its next round of earnings this Thursday, January 21. For all of the relevant information, here is your guide for Thursday’s Q4 earnings announcement.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 Based on management’s projections, IBM analysts model for earnings of $1.79 per share on sales of $20.64 billion. In the same quarter last year, IBM reported EPS of $4.71 on revenue of $21.78 billion.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.View more earnings on IBMIf the company were to match the consensus estimate, earnings would be down 62.0%.
