Hold on to ya butts. HCWB's earnings report drops next week.

+4.15% 24h

HCW Biologics Inc (HCWB) is reporting earnings on August 12. Lets zoom in on how the promising biotech company is expected to perform.

An EPS (earnings per share) of -$0.13 is expected to be reported by HCW Biologics Inc according to analyst consensus. Over the last 90 days, analysts haven''t lowered or raised estimates, implying they are confident in their assessments.

HCWB bulls will be waiting to hear three things. The first is that the reported EPS beat the estimates of analysts. The stock will move on that news. The second is that the company is also reporting higher than expected revenues. Third, the company paints a picture of growth that guides analysts to a future of strong growth. If these three things happen, the share price should react positively.

Grizzly bears possess a biting force of over 1200 PSI, which is enough to crush a bowling ball or an iron skillet. HCWB bears cannot do that, but they can listen for news that the company underperformed analysts' estimates for EPS, Revenues, or future guidance. They'll also want to build negative growth story that frames the company's future as one of deceleration or even decline in revenues over the following 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.

Share price moves can have an impact on existing shareholder sentiment. As of August 04 shares of HCWB are trading at $2.48. Over the last 52-week period, the price is down -64.82%.
