Teledyne Technologies, Inc. TDY is scheduled to release second-quarter 2020 results on Jul 22, before market open. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 8.57%.
Moreover, Teledyne has a four-quarter earnings surprise of 10.64%, on average.
Factors at Play
Teledyne has been experiencing some operational challenges in manufacturing and chirping products owing to its policy of maintaining appropriate employee density at the workplace and balancing employee absenteeism in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak. It has also been witnessing moderate demand and supply chain issues, which had an approximately $15 million impact on its first-quarter revenues.
Considering the fact that the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have intensified since then, the headwinds mentioned above are expected to have magnified for Teledyne in the second quarter.
Teledyne Technologies Incorporated Price and EPS Surprise
Consequently, we remain skeptical about the company’s earnings and revenue performance in the yet-to-be-reported quarter. Moreover, management had earlier projected its sales from commercial aviation market to reflect weak numbers during the second quarter and rest of 2020.
Notably, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Teledyne’s second-quarter revenues is pegged at $756.6million, which indicates a drop of 3.3% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
The expected revenue decline along with segmental operating margin deterioration is likely to have impacted the company’s second quarter bottom line. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings per share is pegged at $2.02, which indicates decline of 27.9% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
