14:35 EDTLLYEarnings Watch: Lilly to report Q1 results amid patent expirations
Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Lilly is a global pharmaceutical manufacturer that also has an animal health business segment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 77c on revenue of $4.62B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-99c on revenue of $4.54B-$4.7B. LAST QUARTER: Eli Lilly reported fourth quarter EPS of 75c, compared to consensus estimates of 74c, on revenue of $5.12B against estimates of $5.2B. The company said it sees fiscal year 2015 EPS of $3.10-$3.20 on revenue of $19.5B-$20B. Lilly's CEO John Lechleiter commented on the quarter, "While Lilly's fourth quarter 2014 results continue to reflect the impact of patent expirations, we are moving to a period of growth led by diabetes, oncology and animal health. Despite the loss of significant revenue for Cymbalta and Evista following the expiration of our U.S. patents, we saw strong performance from many other products. At the same time, we made excellent progress with our innovation-based strategy, and we continue to advance our pipeline." STREET RESEARCH: On March 25, Suntrust raised its price target on Lilly shares to $95 from $80. After meeting with Eli Lilly's management, SunTrust said it expects the company's oncology and diabetes sales to double over the next five years. The firm is upbeat about the short-term outlook of the company's diabetes treatment, and says that its late stage autoimmune, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular treatments are advancing, while its Alzheimer's programs remain underappreciated. SunTrust said it expects the company's earnings CAGR to be in the mid teens between 2015-2020. It kept a Buy rating on Lilly shares. PRICE ACTION: Lilly shares are relatively flat since the company's last earnings report on January 30, and are trading up fractionally to $72.40 in midday trading ahead of Thursday's earnings release.
