CWS Market Review – July 19, 2019
“Sometimes the hardest thing is to do anything.” – David Tepper
The second quarter earnings season has arrived. There have been terrific performance studies this week, and more are coming subsequent week.
This week, three of our buying lists from our warehouse reported a Q2 end result. We had excellent news from Signature Financial institution and Danaher, and we had very dangerous news from Eagle Financial institution. (Actually, I feel the market is dramatically reacting to Eagle. I'll clarify it just a little.)
We also have ten Purchase Record outcome stories next week. It may be a report. On this week's drawback, I'll evaluation all of them.
Three buying listing earnings studies this week
Let's start with dangerous information. On Thursday Eagle Bancorp (EGBN) was a terrible, horrible, not good, very dangerous day. In June, the financial institution earned $ 1.08 per share. This was 4 cents under expectations.
Nevertheless, the large news was information that Eagle stated that its statutory bill jumped in the second quarter resulting from "inquiries and related requests for documents and requests from government agencies." What is that this about?
In its SEC report, Eagle specified “related get together transactions for identification, classification and disclosure of the corporate; retirement of certain former officials and directors; Relationship between the corporate and sure former officials and administrators of the company and an area official. "
All this sounds uninteresting, but the financial institution made it clear that this does not materially affect its outcomes. Nor is the bank subject to regulatory restrictions. One drawback is that because of the nature of the legal issues, Eagle can’t say very a lot. I think this is associated to the local Washington DC political scandals. The problem is that it’s mixed past earnings. Additionally a number of years ago there have been violent (for my part) violence.
On Thursday, the stock lost 26.75%. Nevertheless, Eagle did not learn so badly, particularly given the excessive interest rates.
Run some numbers. Eagle now has $ eight.7 billion in belongings, up 10% from final yr. Common loans grew by 11% and common deposits by 10%. The quarter's internet interest margin was 3.91%. This is 24 foundation factors lower than a yr in the past. I used to be delighted that Eagle's effectivity ratio improved to 38.04% from 38.55% a yr ago.
For Eagle this was a troublesome quarter, but this information just isn’t almost as shocked as Wall Street. It has occurred that the revenue of four cents remained under the decline of the stock worth of 1,430 cents. This can be a big overreaction.
Because of the sale, Eagle shares at the moment are more than eight occasions next yr's earnings. It is a good thing. The dividend yield is as much as 2.25%. I gained't surrender on Eagle. This week, the Purchase Under Worth at Eagle is decreased to $ 43 per share.
Now let's see the good news. On Thursday Danaher (DHR) introduced a $ 1.19 adjustment per share. That is three.5% greater than last yr. It was also above Danaher's personal space. The corporate stated it expects Q2 earnings of $ 1.13 to $ 1.16 per share. Quarterly income elevated three.5% and non-GAAP core income grew 5.5%. Cash move for the fourth quarter was $ 1.2 billion and non-GAAP free money circulate was $ 1.0 billion.
Considering steerage. Through the third quarter, Danaher sees earnings of $ 1.12-1.15 per share. Throughout the year, the corporate sees earnings between $ four.75 and $ four.80 per share. It is a three-cent rise to the lower end.
Thomas P. Joyce, Managing Director, stated: “We are very pleased with the strong budge until 2019, when our team's implementation will drive the growth of 5.5 percent in core business in the second quarter. We believe that recent investments in innovation and commercial initiatives contributed to the distribution of profits in many of our companies. Together with expanding our solid operating margin and generating cash flow, the strength of our results is an indication of the strength of our team and the Danaher business system. ”
Joyce added:“ We proceed to promote the expected acquisition of GE by Biopharma and our deliberate dental business, referred to as Envista. Each transactions remain unchanged in relation to the expectations beforehand expressed. We are excited about future opportunities, and we consider that the DBS-controlled implementation of a differentiated portfolio and our staff will unite us to proceed our robust performance in 2019 and past.
Three months ago, Danaher lowered the complete yr from $ four.75 to $ 4.85 per share. This was on account of dilution of GE Biopharma shares. The settlement ought to typically close at This fall. This revised guide will take us back to the original forecast.
Typically within the second half of this yr, Danaher goes to IPO Envista Holdings, her dentistry. The ticker image is NVST. DHR shares rose on Thursday to a new 52-week excessive. Danaher has purchased up to $ 150 per share.
Also on Thursday Signature Financial institution (SBNY) reported Q2's earnings of $ 2.72 per share. It was one penny greater than expectations.
The signature seems to be a tedious approach to crash after every conversion report, so it's good to see that the shares get some after this report.
The knowledge is pretty good. The stability sheet complete increased by 8.1% to $ 48.88 billion. Common belongings for the quarter have been up 9.four% on the previous yr. Deposits rose 7.three% to $ 37.54 billion. The web interest margin was 2.75%. This is 20 basis factors decrease than a yr ago. It isn’t nice, however it have to be revered on this surroundings.
I am pleased to say that the signature is nearly completed with its taksimailion. The financial institution did this in an enormous method, however then, because of driving apps, the medallions fell in worth. It left a bank with a lot of bombed loans. Within the fourth quarter, Signature bought $ 46.4 million in locket loans. It leaves them with $ 18.8 million in free medallion loans and $ 43.eight million in resale. It was an costly mistake, however the problem is principally behind them.
This week I'm raising the Buy Signature Financial institution under $ 130 a share. Let's now take a look at the earnings studies for the following weeks

RPM Worldwide (RPM) reported its fourth-quarter earnings earlier than market opening on Monday, July 22. The company's fourth quarter led to Might. The corporate has a wide range of nicely-recognized brands reminiscent of Rust-Oleum.
RPM received off to a rough start this yr, but things have improved these days. The April earnings report was very encouraging. (By the best way, this is due to the truth that we maintain our place throughout the year. Our technique is to offer good stocks an opportunity to recuperate.)  I'm nervous concerning the foreign money situation. This is great for RPM. During fiscal fourth quarter, RPM sees earnings of $ 1.12-1.16 per share. It sounds right. RPM has elevated its dividend annually for the previous 45 years. Look ahead to # 46 in October.
Earlier I discussed the large drop in Eagle Bank shares. This is nothing in comparison with what happened Sherwin-Williams (SHW) final fall. Paint firm shares fell 26% in a matter of weeks. It was scary, but we held on and the inventory has fallen sharply.
Sherwin's final scoreboard was a bit mild however an important thing was that they didn't change their full-yr forecast. The company nonetheless sees 2019 earnings between $ 20.40 and $ 21.40 per share. For Q2, Wall Street expects $ 6.37 per share.
Sherwin also settled a 19-year legal battle for lead paint. I can't converse of benefit, however the answer was for Sherwin.
There are three studies on Wednesday.
To start with is Cerner (CERN), who has a superb yr for us. In the course of the second quarter, Cerner expects 63-65 cents per share to earn $ 1.41 and $ 1.46 billion in earnings.
For all of 2019, Cerner sees earnings of $ 2.64 and $ 2.72 per share. That is $ 2.57 from earlier directions and $ 2.67 per share. Earlier this yr, Cerner reached an settlement with Starboard Worth to pay a dividend and lift a buy-again of $ 1.5 billion.
to Q1 Verify Point software (CHKP) was an honest outcome report. The cyber security firm earned $ 1.32 per share. It wins estimates of one cent per share. Managing Director Gil Shwed stated: “In the first quarter, we had good results with our 13 percent increase in security, including advanced solutions for Cloud and Mobile and SandBlast Zero Day threats.”
The issue was that the tutorial was mild. Verify Level stated it will see Q2 revenue between $ 474 million and $ 500 million. When it comes to income, CHK sees $ 1.32 to $ 1.40 in EPS. Truthfully, I had waited extra. The warehouse has been pulled back after spring. I need to hear what the CHKP has to say.
Torchmark (TMK) might be our most boring purchasing record, and it has a very good yr for us. The last efficiency report was fairly good. Internet revenue as ROE was 12.9%. Internet ROE excluding non-recurring gadgets of unrealized internet revenue was 14.7%. For Q2, Wall Street expects $ 1.65 per share.
Thursday is a really busy day for us. 5 of our stock on stock are as a consequence of report. Starting with AFLAC (AFL). The duck stock has just lately been profitable. For Q1, AFLAC acquired $ 1.13 per share. It gained a road of seven cents per share.
A further insurer expects to purchase $ 1.three billion and $ 1.7 billion this yr. AFLAC lately paid its dividend for 36 consecutive years. In 2019, AFLAC stands in its earlier steerage on earnings per share of $ four.10 – $ four.30. This requires the yen to be value $ 110.39 to the dollar. For Q2, Wall Street expects $ 1.07 per share.
Final yr was Fiserv's (FISV) 33th yr in a row of double digit earnings progress. I feel they’ve a superb shot # 34. The corporate made $ three.10 per share final yr, in order that they need to know $ three.41 per share. In 2019, Fiserv has given us a variety of $ 3.39 to $ 3.52 per share. I'm curious to see, they don’t arouse steerage next week
Fiserv huge information, in fact, are planned merger of First Knowledge Firm. This can be a large deal. Fiserv expects it to be completed later this yr.
Fiserv's CEO Jeffery Yabuki warned that Q2 ”can be a low watermark for both inner revenue and custom EPS progress.” Wall Street expects to earn 81 cents per share. The inventory rose on Thursday to a brand new one.
Hershey (HSY) has lately been a robust store for us. This fall was not good, however Q1 was an enormous improvement. Hershey expects EPS to be between $ 5.63 and $ 5.74. This yr, the chocolate inventory is 37.6% for us. For Q2, Wall Street expects $ 1.17 per share.
In April Raytheon (RTN) broke the estimates. The Tomahawk maker earned $ 2.77 a share on Q1, which beat the road by 30 cents a share.
Raytheon is doing notably properly with cybersecurity and its intelligence service. In 2019, RTN sees the end result at $ 11.40 to $ 11.60 per share and $ 28.6 billion at $ 29.1 billion. Earlier this yr, Raytheon increased its dividend by eight.6%. This was its 15-year dividend improve in a row. For Q2, the consensus is $ 2.64 per share.
For Q2 Stryker (SYK) expects revenues to be $ 1.90 to $ 1.95 per share. Throughout the year, Stryker sees earnings of $ eight.05 to $ 8.20 per share. Shares will rise 34.3% this yr.
All the things is now. There shall be many more studies subsequent week. A report on the sale of present houses might be revealed on Tuesday. Then a report on the sale of latest houses will come out on Wednesday. Thursday is durable items and unemployed claims. Then on Friday we get our first take a look at Q2 GDP. The financial system grew by 3.1% within the first three months of the yr. It might have increased by half of that second quarter. Ensure you all the time update updates in your blog.
