Analyst Update: Earnings Guidance, Financial Results, Upcoming Events, and Dividends Declarations
Reviewed by: Rohit Tuli, CFA®
The U.S. stocks fell for the second straight session on Monday, weighed down by the renewed sell-off in energy shares after oil prices touched fresh lows. Nervousness ahead of the fourth quarter 2014 corporate earnings season also kept investors on the sidelines. The S&P 500 index fell 0.81% to close at 2,028.26 and was down by around 3% from its 52-week high hit on December 29, 2014. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished 0.54% lower at 17,640.84, and the Nasdaq Composite was down 0.84% at 4,664.71. Meanwhile, European markets ended higher on Monday as slumping oil prices lifted stocks of companies that benefit from lower fuel prices, such as airlines, which also helped offset the decline in energy shares. Asian markets were mostly lower on Monday, following a downbeat session on Wall Street on Friday.
WESCO International, Inc. (WESCO International) anticipates 2015 sales to grow between 3% and 6%; 2015 EPS to be in the range of $5.50 to $5.90 and free cash flow to be approximately 80% of net income. Additionally, the Company reaffirmed its 2014 EPS outlook and announced a $300 million share repurchase program authorized through December 31, 2017.
The Whitewave Foods Company (Whitewave Foods) reported solid financial results for Q3 2014 with adjusted diluted EPS of $0.27, up by 42.1% YoY, excluding investments associated with its China joint venture, whereas including joint venture investments, adjusted diluted EPS amounted to $0.26.
Winnebago Industries, Inc. (Winnebago Industries) reported Q1 FY 2015 (period ended November 29, 2014) revenues of $224.4 million, up by 0.8% YoY and net income of $9.9 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, as compared to $11.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share in Q1 FY 2014. The Company's earnings were negatively impacted by labor constraints and supply chain disruptions, which hampered production and resulted in delayed completion and shipment of motorized units.
Wolverine World Wide, Inc. (Wolverine World Wide) announced that its Chairman, CEO and President, Blake W. Krueger will present at the 17th Annual ICR XChange Conference at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida, on January 13, 2015. Prior to this, on December 10, 2014, the Company announced that the Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock.
Zuoan Fashion Limited (Zuoan Fashion) posted Q3 2014 after tax loss of RMB 14.1 million versus an after-tax profit of RMB 23.0 million in Q3 2013. Gross profit was RMB 84.8 million as compared to RMB 155.8 million in Q3 2013. The Company's Q3 2015 revenues were RMB 301.1 million in comparison to RMB 380.5 million in Q3 2013 owing to a reduced sales volume; lower wholesale prices offered to the distributors and reduced retail level pricing because of a slower economic environment in China.
