Analysts Estimate Coupa Software. (COUP) to Report a Decline in Earnings: What to Look Out for

Coupa Software. (COUP) is expected to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on higher revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended October 2020. This widely-known consensus outlook gives a good sense of the company’s earnings picture, but how the actual results compare to these estimates is a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price.

The stock might move higher if these key numbers top expectations in the upcoming earnings report, which is expected to be released on December 7. On the other hand, if they miss, the stock may move lower.

While the sustainability of the immediate price change and future earnings expectations will mostly depend on management’s discussion of business conditions on the earnings call, it’s worth handicapping the probability of a positive EPS surprise.

Zacks Consensus Estimate

This company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.04 per share in its upcoming report,
