Analyst Update: Financial Results, Share Repurchases, and Outlook 2015
Reviewed by: Rohit Tuli, CFA®
The U.S. stocks came under pressure on Tuesday as a surprise drop in durable-goods orders coupled with disappointing corporate earnings raised concerns over the U.S. economy's strength. Commerce Department data showed that orders of U.S. durable goods fell 3.4% in December from a month earlier - the fourth decline in five months. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1.65% to close at 17,387.21, the S&P 500 lost 1.34% to close at 2,029.55, and the Nasdaq Composite declined 1.89% to end at 4,681.50. In Europe, the markets retreated after eight-day long winning streak as continued uncertainty in Greece coupled with disappointing corporate results weighed upon investor sentiments. Meanwhile, Asian markets were mostly higher on Tuesday, led by sharp rebound in Japanese stocks on cheaper yen. Chinese stocks fell for the first time in six days amid concerns over declining profit at major industrial companies.
Steel Partners Holdings LP (Steel Partners Holdings) announced financial results for the third quarter of 2014. The Company posted net income of $14.0 million, or $0.50 per diluted common unit for the quarter, as compared to a net loss of $15.4 million, or $0.52 per diluted common unit, during Q3 2013.
Stoneridge, Inc.'s (Stoneridge) third quarter 2014 net sales grew 5.4% YoY to $170.3 million, driven by higher sales in Electronics and Control Devices segments, partially offset by lower sales to Brazilian customers in PST business segment. Stoneridge also revised its 2014 guidance.
STR Holdings, Inc's (STR Holdings) net sales for Q3 2014 increased 53.0% YoY to $9.5 million. The Company's Q3 2014 sales volume increased by approximately 89% YoY, driven by growth with new Chinese customers and improved demand from the Company's European customer base.
