Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the announcement.

Estimate Trend

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its first-quarter earnings per unit of 89 cents has witnessed no upward and one downward movement in the past 30 days. This suggests a year-over-year decline of 44.4%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its revenues for the March quarter is pegged at $4.9 billion, suggesting a year-over-year increase of 39.7%.

Factors to Consider

Thanks to economies reopening, demand for motor fuel is likely to have improved in the March quarter. Being the nation’s largest independent fuel distributor, Sunoco is likely to have benefited from the development.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Sunoco’s motor fuel sales in the first quarter is pegged at $4,812 million, suggesting an improvement from $3,363 million in the year-ago quarter.
