BR's earnings report drops next week. What analysts think:

+0.9% 24h

We're just a few days out from Broadridge Financial Solutions Llc (BR) reporting earnings.

Analysts think Broadridge Financial Solutions Llc will report an EPS (earnings per share) of $2.65. Over the last 90 days, analysts have lowered estimates four times and raised them once.

If you're a bull you'll primarily care about three things. The first is that the reported EPS beat analysts estimates. The second is that the beat is on higher than expected revenues. Third, that the company guides analysts to robust growth going forward. If all check out, the stock should react accordingly.

BR bears will be waiting to hear two things. The first is that the reported EPS underperformed the estimates of analysts. The stock will usually fall on that news, but not always. The second is that the report outlines a negative growth story for the stock in the coming quarters.

If you're new to playing earnings reports, it's important to be aware that sometimes the majority of a stock's price movement can be caused by a change in the analysts' estimates based on the Q&A from the conference call with management discussing the earnings report, rather than from the earnings report itself. The more of these moves you watch, the better you'll recognize the signs over time.

Shares of BR were trading at $165.2 as of August 04. Over the last 52-weeks, shares are down -10.08%. A larger percentage here can mean investors have a stronger bullish or bearish outlook on the stock.
