Estee Lauder Companies Up 1.42% To $280.44 After Earnings Beat

Thursday, August 18, 2022 - Estee Lauder Companies (EL) reported upside earnings and revenues today.

The consensus among analysts for Estee Lauder Companies was for an earnings per share (EPS) of $0.34. The firm was able to surpass those projections, reporting an EPS of $0.42, a positive surprise of $0.08 (24%). Profits fell 46% year-over-year after reporting an EPS of $0.78 in its year-ago quarter. The negative growth rate signals that the Consumer Defensive company isn't performing well amid current economic conditions.

The firm's higher revenue growth to earnings signals that the firm has not been able to reduce costs and has seen its profit margin decrease.
