Earnings History

When I look at a stock, the first thing I do is look to see if the company is beating the number.  This tells me right away where the market’s expectations have been for the company and how management has communicated to the market.  A stock that consistently beats has management communicating expectations to Wall Street that can be achieved.  That is what you want to see.

For Rover Group, I see four straight beats of the Zacks Consensus Estimate over the last calendar year.  That is great to see, but by itself that is not enough to make the company a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
