07:06 EDTAOSA.O. Smith sees FY14 adj. EPS $2.20-$2.35, consensus $2.30
"Residential construction appears to be improving modestly in the U. S.," A.O. Smith said. "Any increase in housing construction should complement our strong replacement water heater business. As a result of higher steel prices, we announced a mid-single digit price increase in North America which will be effective May 1; this is our first price increase in almost two years. Our international business, especially in China, has continued to grow as a result of consumer demand for products with more robust features and benefits. Our investment in product development continues to play a key role in our success in China. As a result of improvement in our full year expectations for China and strength in the U. S. water hear industry, we decided to increase our EPS guidance for FY14. We believe A. O. Smith Corporation will achieve full-year GAAP earnings of $2.06-$2.21 per share, and we believe we will achieve full-year adjusted earnings of $2.20-$2.35 per share, neither of which includes the potential impact from future acquisitions."
