Dominion Energy (D) to Report Q3 Earnings: What's in Store?

Dominion Energy Inc. D is scheduled to release third-quarter 2021 earnings on Nov 5, before the market opens. This utility delivered a negative earnings surprise of 1.3% in the last reported quarter.

Let’s see how things have shaped up before the upcoming earnings announcement.

Factors to Note

Repurchase of shares in 2020 and the resultant reduction of shares outstanding are likely to have positively impacted Dominion Energy’s third-quarter earnings. Regulated earnings growth is likely to have boosted its performance in the third quarter.

Dominion Energy’s third-quarter earnings are likely to have been adversely impacted by COVID deferred operating and maintenance expenses along with an increase in financing costs.

Expectation

Dominion Energy expects third-quarter earnings in the range of 95 cents to $1.10 per share. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is pegged at $1.06 per share, indicating a decline of 1.8% from the year-ago reported figure.

Quantitative Model Predicts

Our proven model does not conclusively predict an earnings beat for Dominion Energy 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 is not the case here as you will see below.
