12:44 EDTFEarnings Watch: Ford sees record 2015 pre-tax profit, ex-items
Ford Motor Co. (F) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings on Thursday, January 28, before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Ford is a manufacturer and distributor of cars and trucks across six continents. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 50c on revenue of $36.4B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 36c-53c on revenue of $34.03B-$38.82B. LAST QUARTER: Ford reported third quarter adjusted EPS of 45c against estimates for 47c, on revenue of $38.1B against estimates for $35.07B. Ford reconfirmed fiscal 2015 pre-tax profit guidance to range from $8.5B-$9.5B, with higher automotive revenue, operating margin, and operating-related cash flow compared with 2014. Ford expects North America 2015 pretax profit to exceed last year's result with an operating margin at the upper end of the company's guidance of 8.5%-9.5%. For Europe, Ford continues to expect pre-tax loss for 2015 to improve compared with 2014 as the company continues towards a return to profitability in the region. On the company's conference call, management said it was on track to deliver a "breakthrough" year and expected a stronger second half, driven by Q4. On January 6, Ford announced a $1B supplemental cash dividend reflecting the company's strong financial performance in 2015 and robust cash and liquidity levels. It also announced that it expects to deliver record 2015 pre-tax profit, ex-items and sees FY16 operating EPS to be about equal to or higher than FY15. During the quarter, Ford reported the following: October U.S. sales up 13% to 213,938 vehicles; November U.S. sales up 0.4% to 187,794 units; and December U.S. sales up 8% to 239,242 vehicles. On January 5, Ford reported total 2015 U.S. sales of 2.61M vehicles, up 5%. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to Ford's Q4 earnings report. On October 28, UBS said the weakness in Ford shares following the company's Q3 tax related miss was a buying opportunity. The firm believed guidance was conservative and the company was setting up for a solid 2016. UBS reiterated its Buy rating and lowered its price target to $22 from $23 on Ford shares. PRICE ACTION: Ford's shares are down approximately 23% since its Q3 report and have lost about 19% year-over-year. In afternoon trading ahead of Thursday's Q4 report, Ford shares are up just over 1% to around $12.
