What to look for when General Electric reports Q2 earnings

General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) is scheduled to report its earnings results for the second quarter of 2019 on Wednesday before the market opens. The results will be hurt by the absence of Industrial Solutions, Value-Based Care and Distributed Power following their sales.

The GE Industrial profit will be benefited by the gains from disposal or held for sale businesses and reduced restructuring and other costs while lower results within Renewable Energy and Power segments could hurt the segment profit.

For GE, over the next two years, the company expects to have significant sources that can be used to de-lever and de-risk the company. This includes $3.4 billion realized as proceeds from the completion of the merger of Transportation business with Wabtec and the sale of Digital ServiceMax business, and future proceeds from the sale of BioPharma business within Healthcare segment and the monetization of balance stakes in BHGE and Wabtec.

As of March 31, 2019, GE has about $1.5 billion of net assets related to the 737 Max program that primarily comprises pre-delivery down payments and owned aircraft subject to lease offset by progress collections. No impairment charges were incurred related to the 737 Max aircraft and related balances in the first quarter of 2019 as GE continues to believe these assets are fully recoverable.

Analysts expect the company’s earnings to dip by 36.80% to $0.12 per share and revenue will decline by 5.20% to $28.52 billion for the second quarter. In comparison, during the previous year quarter, General Electric posted a profit of $0.19 per share on revenue of $30.1 billion. The company has surprised investors by beating analysts’ expectations twice in the past four quarters.

For the first quarter, the company swung to a profit from a loss last year, helped by lower costs and expenses despite a 2% decline in total revenue. The top line was lifted by strong performance in the Aviation segment, which grew 12%. The power segment, meanwhile, saw its revenue plunge 22% during the quarter.

For fiscal 2019, the company expects adjusted earnings in the range of $0.50 to $0.60 per share and revenue growth in the range of low-to-mid-single-digits. Adjusted GE Industrial margin is predicted to be in the range of about flat to up 100 basis points.
