The Estimize consensus calls for EPS of $0.35, three cents lower than the Wall Street consensus, with revenue expectations of $22.95B vs the sell side’s expectation of $9.0B. This suggests profit and revenue growth of -7% and 7%, respectively.

What to watch: United will be the second international carrier to report earnings this season, following Delta’s in-line results last week. In addition to EPS and revenue, investors will be looking at the airline’s passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) report which has been reporting negative or only slightly positive YoY growth for the last several quarters. Analysts expect this quarter to be no different, with PRASM only anticipated to rise 1% YoY, but this is up from a prior forecast of 0%, prompted by an increase in guidance that United provided in March. Just last week the airline provided another increase in guidance when it said unit revenue rose 2.7% last quarter and that it’s adjusted pre-tax margin will be closer to 2%.

What to watch: For companies set to report this week, Interactive Brokers has one of the highest delta’s between Wall Street estimates and Estimize estimates. That, paired with high expected growth and momentum heading into the report may foreshadow good things come tuesday. Since the company last reported, analysts have raised EPS estimates 34% and revenue estimates by 21%. IBKR recently announced they are shuttering a majority of their Market Making operations in order to focus on the Electronic Brokerage segment which should lead to sustained bottom-line growth in future quarters.
