FactSet (FDS) to Report Q1 Earnings: What's in the Offing?
FactSet Research Systems Inc. (FDS - Free Report) is going to report its first-quarter fiscal 2023 results on Dec 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 once, delivering an average earnings beat of 8.4%.
Expectations This Time Around
The consensus estimate for FactSet’s revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $510.9 million, indicating a 20.3% increase from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The top line is expected to have been driven by higher sales of analytics & trading solutions, research & advisory solutions, and the acquisition of CUSIP Global Services.
The bottom line is expected to have been positively impacted by higher revenues. The consensus mark for the bottom line stands at $3.58 per share, suggesting 10.2% year-over-year growth.
What Our Model Says
Our proven model does not conclusively predict an earnings beat for FactSet this time around. The combination of a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) increases the odds of an earnings beat. But that’s not the case here. You can uncover the best stocks to buy or sell before they’re reported with our Earnings ESP Filter.
