Earnings Announcement

The public announcement of a company's earnings. Earnings announcements mean investors will know how a company is performing and may make comparisons to past performance and to other companies. As an earnings announcement may affect the company's stock price, many analysts observe stock performance on the announcement date and consider it a gauge of how the market will treat the news.
