13:18 EDTGEEarnings Preview: General Electric shares little changed since Q1 report
General Electric (GE) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Friday, July 18 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. General Electric is a globally diversified technology and financial services company serving customers in more than 100 countries. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 39c on revenue of $36.3B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 38c-40c on revenue of $35.99B-$36.72B. LAST QUARTER: General Electric reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 33c against estimates for 32c on revenue of $34.18B against estimates for $34.36B. CEO Jeff Immelt said, Were off to a good start to the year, and our 2014 framework remains unchanged. The environment is consistent with our expectations, with a positive bias. During GEs Q1 earnings call, management said the U.S. market gets "a little better every day," and Europe is improving. They said there was some improvement in demand for credit in Q1. They noted the company was on track to reduce share count in 2014, and on track to achieve its margin goal in 2016. The company expected to make gains from divestitures in its industrial portfolio. In June, GE finalized a deal to purchase the Power and Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY), after fending off rivals Siemens (SIEGY) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to GE's Q2 earnings report. On May 12, Barclays upgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry sector to Positive from Neutral. The firm's data indicated that Fed policy had extended the cycle, driving up capital spending and corporate confidence. PRICE ACTION: GE shares traded marginally higher following its Q1 report, but currently sit at approximately the same level as they did three months ago. Over the past twelve months, the stock has gained about 13%. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q2 report, GE shares are down almost 1% to $26.76.
12:52 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares up 4.5% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.24 on revenue of $15.62B. The consensus range is $5.73-$6.64 for EPS, and $15.36B-$15.94B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported first quarter EPS of $6.27 against estimates of $16.40 on revenue of $15.42B against estimates of $15.52B. Google reported Q1 paid clicks up 26% and average cost-per-click decreased 9%. The company also reported Q1 Sites revenue $10.47B and Q1 Network revenue $3.4B. Google said it expects to continue to make "significant capital expenditures" and reported free cash flow in Q1 of $2.05B. NEWS: Google announced several acquisitions in the past quarter, most notably for music streaming service Songza, live video-streaming service Twitch, and high-res imaging satellite maker Skybox Imaging. The company also expanded Shopping Express to New York and other parts of California, including Los Angeles. There were also reports that Google has set aside $500M to expand the service worldwide. Bloomberg reported the company intends to spend a "significant portion" of its offshore cash to make acquisitions with nearly $20B-$30B on foreign companies and foreign technology rights. Google also entered the domain registration business through an invite-only beta website, may likely overhaul Google+ in the near future, and is said to be developing a 7-inch tablet that can capture 3D images. At Google's I/O opening keynote in June, the company said Android had over 1B users, Chrome for Mobile had 300M active users and Google Drive has over 190M active users. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said the company's revenue growth relative to CapEx has declined in the past several years as it has spent less efficiently on growth than its peers. Susquehanna, on the other hand, said Google's recent underperformance has created a buying opportunity due to favorite mix shift and strong core growth at Google.com and YouTube. Ahead of the Q2 earnings report, Google's price target was also raised at Citigroup after channel checks with search marketing companies suggested the business accelerated slightly in Q2. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have risen 4.5% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of Q2 report, Google shares are down a little over 1.5%.
