11:37 EDTFDXFedEx falls after Q2 results, FY15 EPS outlook miss analysts' estimates
Shares of package delivery company FedEx (FDX) are sinking after the company's second quarter results and fiscal year 2015 profit outlook missed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, FedEx reported Q2 EPS of $2.14 and revenue of $11.9B, trailing analysts' consensus estimates of $2.22 and $11.98B, respectively. Share repurchases benefited Q2 earnings by 16c per share, FedEx said. The company reported Q2 operating income of $1.01B, up 22% from $827M last year, and operating margin of 8.5%, up from 7.3% a year ago. FedEx said that operating income and margin increased primarily due to higher volumes and base yields in all three transportation segments. Results for the quarter also included benefits from the company's profit improvement programs, lower pension expense and a slightly positive net impact from fuel, and FedEx said these benefits were partially offset by higher aircraft maintenance expense due to the timing of aircraft maintenance events. FedEx said Express revenue increased 7% from a year ago to $7.02B, Ground revenue increased 8% from a year ago to $3.06B and Freight revenue up 11% from last year to $1.59B. Looking ahead, FedEx reaffirmed its FY15 EPS view of $8.50-$9.00, trailing analysts' estimates of $9.12. The company's outlook assumes continued moderate economic growth and a modest net benefit from fuel. The capital spending forecast for FY15 remains $4.2B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On its earnings conference call, FedEx lowered its 2015 global economic growth view to 3% from 3.1%, but said it still sees U.S. GDP growth of 3.1% in 2015. The company said some customer volume was limited during the West Coast port slowdown, and that it is a "bigger deal than people think." FedEx said fuel surcharge tables will be reviewed in February 2015, and that the company still intends to repurchase shares, but possibly at a slower pace. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, FedEx fell $8.74, or about 5%, to $165.52 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the shares have gained approximately 19% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: FedEx’s main competitor, United Parcel Service (UPS), is down about 2.4% on the session.
