ManpowerGroup (MAN) to Report Q3 Earnings: What to Expect?

ManpowerGroup Inc. MAN is scheduled to report third-quarter 2020 results on Oct 20, before the bell.

The company has a decent earnings surprise history. Earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in two of the last four quarters and missed estimates in two others, the average beat being 10.2%.

Expectations This Time Around

ManpowerGroup has been witnessing material impact of the coronavirus pandemic on its business and third-quarter results are expected to have borne the brunt of the same. Many of the company’s clients have carried out hiring freezes in response to the pandemic and this is expected to have negatively impacted both top and bottom lines.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $4.2 billion, indicating year-over-year decline of 19.6%. The consensus estimate for earnings stands at 61 cents and calls for a massive year-over-year decline of 68.2%.

Last year, it generated $24 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $77.6 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
