Earnings History

When I look at a stock, the first thing I do is look to see if the company is beating the number. This tells me right away where the market’s expectations have been for the company and how management has communicated to the market. A stock that consistently beats has management communicating expectations to Wall Street that can be achieved. That is what you want to see.

For LRN, I see a great history of beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate. There are four beats over the last four quarters. 

The average positive earnings surprise over the last fours quarters works out to be 69%, which means that they are posting results that are above expectations.
