Earnings Preview: Sonos Reports Today. Here’s A Closer Look
Sonos SONO is scheduled to report earnings after Wednesday’s close. The stock is trading near a record high of $32/share and has rallied sharply since it came public in 2018. The stock is prone to big moves after reporting earnings and can easily gap up if the numbers are strong. Conversely, if the numbers disappoint, the stock can easily gap down. To help you prepare, here is what the Street is expecting:
Sonos is expected to earn $0.84/share on $590.41 million in revenue. Meanwhile, the so-called Whisper number is $0.95/share. The Whisper number is the Street’s unofficial view on earnings.

Looking forward, earnings are expected to jump to $0.86 in 2022!
