15:13 EDTAAEarnings Preview: Alcoa sees Q3 EPS to 'continue to build on strong Q2'
Alcoa (AA) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings after the close on Wednesday, October 8, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Alcoa is a global manufacturer of aluminum products. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 23c on revenue of $5.85B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 15c-28c on revenue of $5.62B-$6.07B. LAST QUARTER: Alcoa reported second quarter adjusted EPS of 18c against estimates for 12c on revenue of $5.8B against estimates for $5.66B. The company reiterated its 2014 global aluminum demand growth view of 7%, and backed its 2014 global aerospace growth outlook of 8%-9%. It raised its 2014 estimate for the North America commercial transportation market to 10%-14%, from a previous range of 5%-9%. The higher estimate was based in part on rising truck orders and backlogs. CEO Klaus Kleinfeld said the company's transformation was in "high gear." He noted that aerospace business is a tailwind due to strong demand for commercial aircraft, and said the company is well-positioned to capture upside from recent investments. On Alcoa's Q2 earnings conference call, management said during the quarter the company witnessed revenue growth across all major end markets and the businesses continued to deliver productivity gains. They expect Q3 earnings per share to "continue to build on the strong second quarter." ATOI is expected to grow by 5%-10% over last year's third quarter due to continued share gains, stronger market conditions and productivity. Productivity gains are expected to offset cost increases in Q3. For 2014, productivity is ahead of schedule with $556M of productivity gains achieved in first half 2014 against the annual target of $850M. On September 11, Alcoa signed a multi-year supply contract with Boeing (BA) valued at over $1B. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been overwhelmingly positive in the weeks leading up to Alcoa's Q3 earnings report. On July 9, three firms, Stifel, JP Morgan, and Argus raised their respective price targets on Alcoa. On September 30, BofA/Merrill upgraded Alcoa to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $18. The firm was more positive on the outlook for aluminum and raised Alcoa's 2015 EPS estimate to $1.05 and EBITDA to $4.1B vs. consensus of 85c and $3.8B. BofA said plant closures, better demand, and falling pension costs were catalysts. PRICE ACTION: Alcoa shares have rallied approximately 8% over the past three months, touching a 52-week high of $17.36 in September. Over the past twelve months, the stock is up about 100%. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q3 report, Alcoa shares are down fractionally.
