Coming into today, shares of the financial services firm had lost 12.4% in the past month. In that same time, the Finance sector lost 9.02%, while the S&P 500 lost 10.02%.

T. Rowe Price will be looking to display strength as it nears its next earnings release, which is expected to be July 28, 2022. On that day, T.

Meanwhile, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenue is projecting net sales of $1.84 billion, down 4.7% from the year-ago period.

Looking at the full year, our Zacks Consensus Estimates suggest analysts are expecting earnings of $10.46 per share and revenue of $7.46 billion. These totals would mark changes of -17.96% and -2.77%, respectively, from last year.

Investors should also note any recent changes to analyst estimates for T. Rowe Price. Recent revisions tend to reflect the latest near-term business trends. As such, positive estimate revisions reflect analyst optimism about the company's business and profitability.

Based on our research, we believe these estimate revisions are directly related to near-team stock moves. We developed the Zacks Rank to capitalize on this phenomenon. Our system takes these estimate changes into account and delivers a clear, actionable rating model.

The Zacks Rank system, which ranges from #1 (Strong Buy) to #5 (Strong Sell), has an impressive outside-audited track record of outperformance, with #1 stocks generating an average annual return of +25% since 1988.
