Looking for a stock that might be in a good position to beat earnings at its next report? Consider Dish Network Corp. ( DISH ), a firm in the Independent Oil & Gas industry, which could be a great candidate for another beat.
This company has seen a nice streak of beating earnings estimates, especially when looking at the previous two reports. In fact, in these reports, DISH has beaten estimates by at least 50% in both cases, suggesting it has a nice short-term history of crushing expectations.
Earnings in Focus
Two quarters ago, DISH expected to earn 41 cents per share, while it actually produced earnings of 76 cents, a beat of 85.4%. Meanwhile, for the most recent quarter, the company looked to earn 46 cents per share, when it actually saw an earnings of 70 cents per share instead, representing a 52.2% positive surprise.
Thanks in part to this history, estimates have moved higher for Dish Network over the last 60 days. In fact, the Earnings ESP for DISH is positive, which is a great sign of a coming beat.
After all, the Zacks Earnings ESP compares the most accurate estimate to the broad consensus, looking to find stocks that have seen big revisions as of late, suggesting that analysts have recently become more bullish on the company's earnings prospects. This is the case for DISH, as the firm currently has a Zacks Earnings ESP of 7.69%, so another beat could be around the corner.
This is particularly true when you consider that DISH has a great Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) which can be a harbinger of outperformance and a signal for a strong earnings profile. And when you add this solid Zacks Rank to a positive Earnings ESP, a positive earnings surprise happens nearly 70% of the time, so it seems pretty likely that DISH could see another beat at its next report, especially if recent trends are any guide.
