What to Expect for NextEra Energy Partners (NEP) Q3 Earnings

NextEra Energy Partners, LP NEP is scheduled to release third-quarter 2020 earnings on Oct 21, before market open. The partnership witnessed an earnings surprise of 38% in the last reported quarter.

Let’s focus on the factors that might have impacted the firm’s earnings in the September quarter.

Factors to Consider

NextEra Energy Partners’ efforts to execute its long-term strategic objectives and its focus on the United States are expected to have boosted its performance in the third quarter. Acquisition of 611 MW of renewable assets from NextEra Energy Resources in the second quarter is expected to have further strengthened its clean power generation capability in the third quarter.

Though pandemic-related restrictions began easing, the unprecedented economic crisis and the shutdown of business activities for the majority of the third quarter might adversely impact the firm’s upcoming results.

Which Way Are Estimates Trending?

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings and revenues is pegged at 62 cents per unit and $361.51 million, respectively. The top- and the bottom-line figures indicate a respective rise of 151.24% and 42.89% from the year-ago quarter’s reported numbers.
