Investors are always looking for stocks that are poised to beat at earnings season and DNOW Inc. DNOW may be one such company. The firm has earnings coming up pretty soon, and events are shaping up quite nicely for their report.

That is because DNOW is seeing favorable earnings estimate revision activity as of late, which is generally a precursor to an earnings beat. After all, analysts raising estimates right before earnings β€” with the most up-to-date information possible β€” is a pretty good indicator of some favorable trends underneath the surface for DNOW in this report.

In fact, the Most Accurate Estimate for the current quarter is currently higher than the broader Zacks Consensus Estimate of 24 cents per share. This suggests that analysts have very recently bumped up their estimates for DNOW, giving the stock a Zacks Earnings ESP of +2.13% heading into earnings season.

Why is this Important?

A positive reading for the Zacks Earnings ESP has proven to be very powerful in producing both positive surprises, and outperforming the market. Our recent 10-year backtest shows that stocks that have a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) or better show a positive surprise nearly 70% of the time, and have returned over 28% on average in annual returns (see more Top Earnings ESP stocks here).

Given that DNOW has a Zacks Rank #3 and an ESP in positive territory, investors might want to consider this stock ahead of earnings. You can seeΒ the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Clearly, recent earnings estimate revisions suggest that good things are ahead for DNOW, and that a beat might be in the cards for the upcoming report.

Zacks Names β€œSingle Best Pick to Double”

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

It’s an American AI company that’s riding low right now, but it has rounded up clients like BMW, GE, Dell Computer, and Bosch. It has prospects for not just doubling but quadrupling in the year to come. Of course, all our picks aren’t winners but this one could far surpass earlier Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in little more than 9 months and NVIDIA which boomed +175.9% in one year.
