15:16 EDTSWYGreenlight starts new GM long position, rolls Lorillard short bet to Reynolds
David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital hedge fund said in its latest quarterly letter to investors that it had established new long positions in General Motors (GM), Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) and AerCap Holdings (AER) last quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Greenlight believes GM should benefit from low gas prices, low raw material costs, and its decision to launch share buybacks, Greenlight stated. GM has an excellent chance of beating 2015 EPS expectations, added the firm. Einhorn's group said they found the valuation of Chicago Bridge and Iron, an engineering and construction company with significant exposure to energy, attractive following the stock's decline. Although energy prices may stay low for some time, the company has a significant backlog that should support its earnings for several years, Greenlight stated. Additionally, the market is overestimating how much of the cost overruns for two nuclear energy projects with be shouldered by the company, Greenlight contended. AerCap, the largest publicly traded aircraft leasing company, bought AIG's (AIG) aircraft leasing business last year at a bargain price, Greenlight stated. The combined business will benefit from AerCap's low tax rate, as well as efficiencies, the hedge fund believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Greenlight exited its short position in Lorillard (LO). Greenlight noted that it has rolled its short bet on Lorillard into a fresh position in Reynolds American (RAI), since it still believes that the FDA is gearing up to do "something major" in terms of regulation of menthol cigarettes, but is moving "slowly and deliberately" because it anticipates an extremely aggressive industry response. The firm also exited two other short positions because the companies agreed to takeovers: Safeway (SWY) and Freescale Semiconductor (FSL), which has agreed to sell itself to NXP Semicondictors (NXPI).
13:41 EDTFTREarnings Watch: Verizon shares up marginally since Q4 results
Verizon Communications (VZ) is expected to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Tuesday, April 21, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Verizon is a holding company providing communications, information and entertainment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 95c on revenue of $32.27B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 89c-$1.00 on revenue of $31.74B-$32.97B. LAST QUARTER: Verizon reported fourth quarter adjusted EPS of 71c against estimates for 72c on revenue of $33.19B against estimates for $32.69B. For Q4 in Wireless, the company reported 2.1M net retail connections; 2.0M net retail postpaid connections, including net additions of 672,000 postpaid phones; retail postpaid churn of 1.14%; 108.2M total retail connections and 102.1M total retail postpaid connections. In Wireline, it reported 4.1% year-over-year quarterly increase in consumer revenues. Verizon reported Q4 retail postpaid ARPA, or average revenue per account, increased 1.0% over Q4 of 2013 to $158.82 per month, and 3.9% over the full year. Verizon reported Q4 FiOS consumer revenue growth of 11.1%; 6.6M FiOS Internet subscribers, with 145K net additions; 5.6M FiOS Video subscribers, with 116K net additions. For 2015, Verizon expects consolidated revenue growth of at least 4%. It sees sustained profitability with a consolidated adjusted EBITDA margin at a level consistent with full-year 2014 performance. It also expects strong free cash flow generation with consolidated capital spending of $17.5B-$18.0B. On February 5, Frontier Communications (FTR) announced a definitive agreement with Verizon under which Frontier will acquire Verizonís wireline operations that provide services to residential, commercial and wholesale customers in California, Florida and Texas, for $10.54B in cash. On the same day, Verizon announced a $5B accelerated share-repurchase program and agreed to lease the rights to over 11,300 of its company-owned wireless towers to American Tower (AMT), which will also purchase approximately 165 Verizon towers, for a total upfront payment of approximately $5B. American Tower will have exclusive rights to lease and operate over 11,300 Verizon cell towers, a significant majority of the towers the company currently owns. In addition, Verizon will sell approximately 165 towers outright. On March 10 at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference, CFO Fran Shammo said there was ďnot much changeĒ in the competitive environment since Q4-end, Q1 volume should return to "more normal levels," and Q1 churn is likely to be elevated from year ago, but not "something that is going to be concerning." PRICE ACTION: Verizonís shares are up marginally since the company's Q4 report. Over the past twelve months, they are up about 3.3%. In afternoon trading ahead of Tuesday's Q1 report, Verizonís shares are up 0.5%.
