These consensus estimates, in relation to the actual reported earnings, is one of the main points of focus for investors and traders.

There is usually plenty of potential volatility that may occur before and after an earnings announcement; and an understanding that stocks can fall on good earnings and rise on poor earnings is important when establishing or managing a stock or option position.
