ALLETE, Inc. (NYSE:ALE) is scheduled to release fourth-quarter 2019 earnings on Feb 13, 2020, before market open. The company has a trailing four-quarter negative earnings surprise of 3.13%, on average.

Factors to Consider

ALLETE is focused toward clean energy generation and is undertaking initiatives for the same. The completed wind project — the Glen Ullin Energy Center — is likely to have made a positive impact on the company’s fourth-quarter performance.

Q4 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter 2019 sales is pegged at $415.39 million, which suggests a decline of 7.34% from the year-ago quarter’s figure.
