Duke Energy Corporation Earnings & Revenue 

In Q1 2023, Duke Energy Corporation was supposed to report $6.58 Billion in revenue but impressing its investors, the company reported $7.28 Billion in revenue instead. Similarly, in Q2, the company was expected to report $6.16 Billion in revenue; however, it reported 6.58% more revenue than the estimated figures. 

Despite positive revenue, Earnings Per Share (EPS) of the company reflected a steep decline in Q1 & Q2 2023. For Q1 2023, the expected EPS of the company was $1.26, but the company reported only $1.20. 

In the financial year 2022, Duke Energy Corporation was expected to report $26.99 Billion in revenue, but the company beat expectations after reporting $28.77 Billion in revenue. 

From the reported revenue of 2022, the company’s gross profit was 27%, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) was 40%, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) was 22%, and its net income was 9%. 


On August 21, DUK stock experienced a significant drop of more than $1 in its trading price, attributed to substantial selling pressure. This persistent decline has caused the breach of various nearby support levels. However, upon examining the technical elements of Duke Energy Corporation’s stock, there’s a possibility of a potential reversal on the horizon, likely near an initial support level.
