Energizer Holdings (ENR): What to Expect from Earnings?

Energizer Holdings, Inc. ( ENR ) is set to report fourth-quarter and fiscal 2015 results on Nov 12. Let's see how things are shaping up for this announcement.

Factors to Consider

From the fourth quarter, Energizer Holdings will report the operational results from itsHousehold Product Division (comprising battery business) while the rest of the consumer brands business has been included in the operations of Edgewell Personal Care Co. ( EPC ).

We believe that the expected decline in volumes in the Household product segment, unfavorable foreign exchange and increasing competition from peers are the near-term headwinds. In addition, the company has a debtburden of $1 billion resulting from the reorganization of the business. The company expects fourth quarter results to bear a cost impact of about $15 million to $25 million due to the spin-off.

Energizer has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).

Stocks to Consider

Here are some stocks that, as per our model, have the right combination of elements to post an earnings beat this quarter:

Seadrill Partners LLC ( SDLP ) has an Earnings ESP of +12.00% and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

Helmerich & Payne, Inc. ( HP ) has an Earnings ESP of +50.00% and a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
