Clearway Energy, Inc. CWEN is scheduled to release third-quarter earnings on Nov 6.

The company was formed after Global Infrastructure Partners ("GIP") acquired all the ownership interests of NRG Yield, Inc. from NRG Energy, Inc. NRG and started to trade from Sep 17, 2018.

Let's see how things are shaping up for the company prior to the earnings announcement.

Factors to Consider

Clearway Energy will gain from the high quality of renewable assets under management. Total revenues are expected to grow through efficient usage of its existing assets and increase in capacity. In addition, the company is expected to benefit from its cost-management initiatives.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings per share and total revenues is pegged at 53 cents and $295 million, reflecting year-over-year growth of 96.3% and 11.3%, respectively.

What Our Quantitative Model Predicts

A stock needs to have both a positive Earnings ESP (which represents the difference between the Most Accurate Estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate) and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) to surpass estimates. The company does not have the right mix.

Earnings ESP : Earnings ESP of the company is pegged at 0.00%.

Zacks Rank : Currently, Clearway Energy carries a Zacks Rank #1. Even though the company's favorable Zacks Rank increases the possibility of an earnings beat, its 0.00% ESP makes positive earnings surprise unlikely this season.

Conversely, we caution against Sell-rated stocks (#4 or 5) going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is seeing negative estimate revisions.

Stocks to Consider

Here are some companies from the Zacks Oil and Energy sector , which have the right combination of elements to deliver an earnings beat this season.

Summit Midstream Partners, LP SMLP has an Earnings ESP of +64.00% and a Zacks Rank of 1. It is anticipated to report third-quarter 2018 earnings on Nov 7. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

TC PipeLines, LP TCP has an Earnings ESP of +13.29% and a Zacks Rank of 1. It is expected to report third-quarter 2018 earnings on Nov 9.

Enbridge Inc. EVRG has an Earnings ESP of +3.86% and a Zacks Rank #1. It is expected to report third-quarter 2018 earnings on Nov 7.

Today's Stocks from Zacks' Hottest Strategies

It's hard to believe, even for us at Zacks. But while the market gained +21.9% in 2017, our top stock-picking screens have returned +115.0%, +109.3%, +104.9%, +98.6%, and +67.1%.

And this outperformance has not just been a recent phenomenon. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent. From 2000 - 2017, the composite yearly average gain for these strategies has beaten the market more than 19X over. Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation.
