Honeywell beats Q4 earnings estimates; revenues fall short

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) reported better-than-expected earnings for the fourth quarter of 2019 while sales fell short of estimates. Shares were down slightly in premarket hours on Friday.

Reported net income attributable to Honeywell was $1.5 billion compared to $1.7 billion in the prior-year quarter. Reported EPS fell 6% to $2.16 while adjusted EPS ex-spins rose 11% to $2.06. Analysts had forecast adjusted EPS of $2.04.

During the quarter, organic sales in the Aerospace segment increased 7% helped by strength in Defense and Space, along with air transport commercial aftermarket, as well as demand in business aviation.

In Honeywell Building Technologies, organic sales rose 3% driven by demand in commercial fire and building management products, and security growth across the Americas and Europe. In Performance Materials and Technologies, organic sales grew 3% fueled by strength in Process Solutions, as well as equipment and petrochemical catalysts in UOP.
