Honeywell (HON) earnings preview: Factors to watch in Q3

Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE: HON) is slated to report third quarter 2019 earnings results on Thursday, October 17 before the opening bell. Analysts expect the company to report earnings of $2.01 per share in the quarter. This compares to earnings of $2.03 per share reported last year. Revenue is expected to decrease 15% year-over-year to $9.1 billion.

Last quarter, sales results were impacted by the spin-offs of two business divisions leading to a 15% decline on a reported basis. However, on an organic basis, sales grew 5%, helped by strength in aviation and building solutions.  

Honeywell Q2 profit jumps 22% beats estimates

The strength in the commercial aerospace market might benefit the company in the third quarter. The building solutions and process solutions businesses are also expected to remain healthy in the period. However, weakness in the safety and productivity solutions is likely to dampen results. Economic volatility and currency headwinds are also likely to take a toll on the quarterly numbers.

During the quarter, Honeywell acquired privately-held TruTrak Flight Systems for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition is expected to expand the company’s capabilities in the aviation market.
