Public Service Enterprise (NYSE:PEG) is scheduled to release fourth-quarter and 2019 results on Feb 26, before the opening bell. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered a positive earnings surprise of 3.16%.

Moreover, the company’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters and missed the same once, the average positive surprise being 1.91%.

Let’s discuss the factors that are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.

Factors to Consider

At the onset of the quarter, most of Public Service Enterprise’s service territory areas experienced warmer-than-normal temperature, while in December heavy rainfall was witnessed along with snow. This is likely to have increased household expenditure for electricity, which in turn may have boosted company’s fourth-quarter revenues.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter revenues is pegged at $2.85 billion, which indicates a rise of 15.6% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

Public Service Enterprise’s quarterly bottom line is expected to have benefited from rate relief and a mid-year re-measurement of the pension plan. Along with that, effective cost control and lower corporate tax rate at PSEG power are expected to have bolstered the company’s earnings.

Moreover, positive synergies from the completed sale of Public Service Enterprise’s 776-megawatt interest in the Keystone and Conemaugh generating units in the third quarter are expected to have boosted fourth-quarter earnings.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter earnings is pegged at 62 cents per share, which suggests 10.7% improvement from the year-ago quarter reported figure.
