Monday - Palo Alto Networks

Network security company Palo Alto Networks (PANW) is set to report earnings on Monday after the market closes. Contributing analysts on Estimize are expecting Palo Alto Networks to top the Wall Street EPS consensus by a penny per share on the bottom line and slightly over $4 million (2.4%) in revenue.

Over the past 2 years Palo Alto has consistently reported in-line or a 1 cent above the EPS consensus from the Street. 6 of the previous 8 reports have been 1 cent better, and 2 came in-line.

Coincidentally the 2 periods in which Palo Alto failed to maintain its quarter of quarter sequential earnings growth were both in its 4th fiscal quarter of the year. On Monday the Estimize community expects Palo Alto to shake of its 1 quarter stretch of flat earnings and get back to increasing profits by 1 cent per share. 

Tuesday-Hewlett Packard Company

Last quarter HP (HPQ) announced that it will be dividing itself into two separate companies in one of the biggest tech breakups all time. One of the two companies will be dedicated to enterprise technology including servers and data storage equipment, the other will focus on selling printers and personal computers.

The split up is expected to be wrapped up by October of 2015 and the optimistic hope that by narrowing the two sides’ focus they may be able reinvigorate expansion after a long period of stagnation. image

In the past couple of years HP has struggled with earnings, only reporting an advancement in the 3 most recent quarters while going up against soft comparable quarters caused by drops in 2013. Again this quarter the Estimize community expects earnings per share that are higher than last year’s results, but lower than the same quarter EPS reported in 2012.

Tuesday - Tiffany and Co.

Jewelry retailer Tiffany’s (TIF) has put up 2 impressive earnings beats in a row now and contributing analysts on Estimize are expecting another 5 cent beat on Tuesday.
