13:40 EDTCATEarnings Preview: Caterpillar sees Q1 revenue flat, year-over-year
Caterpillar (CAT) is expected to report first quarter earnings on Thursday, April 24, before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 11:00 am ET. Caterpillar is a manufacturer of mining and construction equipment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.24 on revenue of $13.14B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.03-$1.35 on revenue of $12.34B-$13.74B. LAST QUARTER: Caterpillar reported fourth quarter EPS of $1.54 against estimates for $1.28 on revenue of $14.4B against estimates for $13.64B. On its Q4 earnings report, the company forecast 2014 EPS ex. restructuring costs of $5.85, versus consensus of $5.78. FY14 revenue was seen at $56B, compared to consensus of $55.27B. In total, the company expects restructuring actions in 2014 to be about $400M-$500M and an after tax impact of 50c-60c per share. Caterpillar said it was seeing signs of improvement in the world economy. Despite the company's expectation that mine production will continue to increase, it expects mining companies to further reduce their capital expenditures in 2014. As a result, it expects sales in Resource Industries to decline modestly. The company said it will continue to be cautious on the mining industry. The company announced a $10B stock repurchase program that will expire on December 31, 2018, and it intends to repurchase $1.7B of common stock in Q1. On the company's Q4 conference call, management said it sees Q1 revenue flat with 1Q13. STREET RESEARCH: Sentiment on the Street has been mixed in the weeks leading up to Caterpillar's Q1 report. On February 20, Caterpillar was initiated with a Buy at Deutsche Bank with a price target of $122. Conversely, on March 4, Standpoint Research downgraded Caterpillar to Hold from Buy. PRICE ACTION: Caterpillar’s shares have traded approximately 14% higher since Q4 results were released in late January, and are up about 23% over the past year. In afternoon trading ahead of Thursday's Q1 report, Caterpillar’s shares are nearly flat.
