Earnings Expectations

Earnings Expectations

The consensus estimate of analysts and other experts as to a company's earnings for a given period of time. If earnings expectations are high, the price of a company's stock may increase as investors seek to take advantage of the added value or dividend. Companies may hint about their earnings before the earnings announcement so as to prevent their stocks from unsustainably rising or falling in price.
