On February 20, SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (SEDG) is set to announce its Q4 and full-year 2023 results post-market close.

In the preceding quarter, the company experienced a strikingly negative earnings surprise of 180.88%, with an average earnings surprise of 13.23% over the past four quarters.

Current Factors in Play

SolarEdge faced a recent slowdown in market demand, coupled with financial challenges endured by its distributors, leading to a substantial number of order cancellations. The company’s operations were anticipated to be affected by heightened interest expenses in the U.S. and imbalances in the global supply and demand dynamics for solar modules resulting in a probable decline in installation rates and order growth.

The consensus estimate for SEDG’s Q4 revenues is at $322.7 million, signaling a 63.8% decline from the previous year.

EPS Projections and Analysis Model

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for SEDG’s Q4 earnings is a loss of $1.47 per share, reflecting a significant deterioration from the prior-year quarter’s reported earnings.

However, our analysis model does not conclusively predict a positive earnings outcome for SolarEdge this time around. Despite a Zacks Rank #3, the company’s Earnings ESP stands at -11.90%, dampening the potential for an earnings beat.

Alternate Stock Considerations

In the same sector, three other companies show potential to deliver a positive earnings surprise in the current reporting cycle. This includes Cheniere Energy (LNG), FuelCell Energy (FCEL), and Aemetis (AMTX), each with favorable Earnings ESP and Zacks Rank #3.
