TSE’s shares have gained in anticipation of strong second-quarter results. The company’s results are expected to be supported by strong end-market demand, benefits from commercial excellence actions and contributions from recently acquired businesses. It is also expected to gain from its pricing actions to counter freight, labor and raw material cost inflation.

This plastics and latex maker is expected to post quarterly earnings of $2.02 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of -45.4%. Revenues are expected to be $1.37 billion, up 7.8% from the year-ago quarter.

Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.

For Trinseo, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has been revised marginally higher over the last 30 days to the current level. And a positive trend in earnings estimate revision usually translates into price appreciation.
