05:23 EDTJECJacobs Engineering reports Q4 EPS 65c, consensus 86c
Reports Q4 revenue $3.2B, consensus $3.32B. Included in the company’s results for the quarter ended September 26, is an aggregate after-tax negative impact of $30.4M, or 23c per diluted share, related to restructuring efforts. Consolidated tax expense for Q4 was negatively impacted by the effects of changing tax rates relating to certain of the company's international pension plans. This impact was substantially offset by the positive effects relating to the reassessment of certain international tax exposures and the resulting reversal of approximately $4.0M of accrued interest expense.

14:02 EDTJECJacobs Engineering technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed in the prior three months, trading down 10%. The trend was decidedly bearish in the front half of the period, but since the market lows of mid-October has modified to a sideways consolidation. In a longer-term view the recent price action has been part of a much larger downtrend since price peaked in late 2013. There is a potential bearish flag when viewed on a 5-year graph, with the flag being formed by the recent price consolidation. On bearish news, a breakdown below the low of the flag at $47 would trigger the pattern. Downside potential if the pattern triggers and completes is to the $35 area. If the news is better than current bearish expectations would suggest, the key for price would be breaking out of the top of the flag at $49. If that happens the pattern would be voided. Additional upside objectives would be at $50.56, $51.65, and $53.28 depending on the degree of positive surprise.
