What's in Store for ManpowerGroup (MAN) in Q1 Earnings?

Read MoreHide Full Article

ManpowerGroup Inc. (MAN - Free Report) is scheduled to report first-quarter 2021 results on Apr 20, before the bell.

The company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters and missed the same in one, the average beat being 39.3%.

Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $4.67 billion, indicating year-over-year growth of 1%. This small improvement in the top line is likely to be due to recovery of business with easing of lockdown requirements and restrictions in the markets the company serves.

The consensus estimate for earnings stands at 66 cents and calls for year-over-year decline of 19.5%. Weak operating performance resulting from the pandemic is likely to have weighed on the bottom line in the quarter.
