Read MoreHide Full Article

Palantir Technologies Inc. (PLTR - Free Report) is slated to report its second-quarter 2022 results on Aug 8, before the bell.

The company’s earnings surprise history has not been impressive. Earnings lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate in two of the trailing four quarters, matched once and beat once, delivering an earnings surprise of -16.7%, on average.

Q2 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $470 million, indicating 25.1% year-over-year growth. The top line is expected to have benefited from strength in both the government and commercial segments. Both segments are likely to have benefited from increased contributions from existing as well as new customers.

The consensus mark for earnings is pegged at 3 cents per share, indicating a year-over-year decline of 25%. An increase in expense due to continued investment across the business is likely to have weighed on the bottom line in the quarter.
