SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) Q3 Earnings: What's in Store?
SolarEdge Technologies, Inc.SEDG is scheduled to report third-quarter 2018 results on Nov 1, after the market closes . In the last reported quarter, the company witnessed a negative earnings surprise of 8.89%.
Let's see how things are shaping up prior to this announcement.
Factors to Consider
Growing commercial and residential solar installations in the United States and increasing demand for its inverters in Europe have been driving SolarEdge Technologies' revenues of late. Similar trend might have boosted the company's top line in the third quarter, which should duly get reflected in the upcoming quarterly result.
Meanwhile, SolarEdge Technologies continues to invest in manufacturing capacity. This, in turn, is likely to increase shipments to its valued customers and bolster the company's revenue growth in the to-be-reported quarter. In line with this, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues is pegged at $234.2 million, reflecting an annual increase of 40.6%.
Such higher sales are expected to result in improved bottom-line figures in the quarter to be reported. As a result, the Zacks Consensus Estimate is pegged at 84 cents per share, mirroring an annual rise of 27.3%.
