What's in Store for Rocket Companies (RKT) in Q4 Earnings?

Rocket Companies, Inc. RKT will report fourth-quarter 2021 results on Feb 24, after the bell.

The company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in two of the trailing four quarters, matched once and missed in the other, posting an earnings surprise of 13.5%, on average.

Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $2.65 billion, indicating 43.6% decline from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The top line is expected to have been affected by a decline in gain on sale revenues. Weak EBITDA performance is likely to have negatively impacted the bottom line, the consensus estimate for which is pegged at 37 cents per share, indicating a 67.5% year-over-year decline.
