Honeywell (HON) Q4: Earnings in-Line, Revenues Miss

Global diversified technology and manufacturing firm Honeywell International Inc.HON has a balanced mix of long and short-cycle businesses. With a flexible yet disciplined focus on cost and productivity, HON remains focused on increasing its presence in high-growth regions.

However, despite HON's proactive restructuring initiatives, it is yet to witness signs of stabilization in a number of its major end markets. As the extent of competition is increasing over time, investors have been eagerly waiting for the company's latest earnings report. In the last four trailing quarters, HON has reported a positive average earnings surprise of 1.74%, beating the earnings estimates thrice.

Currently, HON has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell), but that could definitely change following the Fourth-quarter earnings report which was just released. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank stocks here .

We have highlighted some of the key stats from this just-revealed announcement below:
