Real GDP Down; Real Final Sales Up/Was the Economy Stronger or Weaker in the First Quarter?

By Bob McTeer, Contributor Casual consumers of economic data, i.e. normal people, probably understand instinctively that the details behind the headline numbers matter. However, they can at least rest assured that such a large increase in the real GDP estimate as we had from the 4th quarter to the 1st quarter—from plus 0.4% to plus 2.5%–at least gets the direction right. Or, can they?

Rogers Corporation Updates Guidance for the First Quarter

Rogers Corporation Updates Guidance for the First Quarter

ROGERS, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Rogers Corporation (NYS: ROG) (“Rogers” or the “Company”) today announced revised guidance for its fiscal first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Rogers now projects first quarter net sales from continuing operations of approximately $126 million compared to the February 19, 2013 guidance of $129 to $133 million. The GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations for the first quarter 2013 are expected to be approximately $0.39 per share. These per share estimates include anticipated net special adjustments of approximately $0.05 per diluted share during the quarter. Excluding these charges, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations are expected to be $0.44 compared to the previous non-GAAP guidance of $0.57 to $0.61 per diluted share. The first quarter results were primarily impacted by lower demand and lower production absorption in the quarter, as well as start-up costs associated with the installation of the new molded urethane foam manufacturing line.

The special adjustments are comprised of:

  • $0.7 million of pre-tax charges related to severance costs associated with workforce reductions during the quarter. This charge impacts Selling General & Administrative expenses (SG&A).
  • $0.5 million of pre-tax charges primarily associated with moving the final inspection operation for Curamik Electronics Solutions from its site in Eschenbach, Germany to Hungary. This move had been previously announced, and the costs are expensed as they are incurred. This charge also impacts SG&A.

The Company is currently working through its quarterly closing process to finalize results, which it expects to report at the end of April 2013. A table reconciling the GAAP and non-GAAP earnings amounts disclosed in this press release is included below.

Bruce D. Hoechner, President and CEO commented, “This year’s first quarter sales were up about $5.8 million or 4.8% over the first quarter of 2012, but fell slightly below the low end of our guidance for the quarter by about $3 million or 2.4%. As reported by industry sources, the quarterly reduction in global demand for tablet devices and reduced military spending impacted our first quarter results more than anticipated. However, High Performance Foams had record first quarter sales up 5.0% and our Printed Circuit Materials operating segment started the year strong with sales up 10.6%, both relative to the first quarter of 2012. We see positive signs in the markets we serve and expect market conditions to improve

  • Direct OEM Bookings at Highest Level Since 2010
  • Automotive Product Line Sales up 26% Sequentially to Record Quarterly Level

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Fairchild Semiconductor (NYS: FCS) , a leading global supplier of power semiconductors, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Fairchild reported first quarter sales of $343.2 million, up 3 percent from the prior quarter and 3 percent lower than the 14 week first quarter of 2012.

Fairchild reported a first quarter net loss of $0.5 million or $0.00 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $13.6 million or $0.11 per diluted share in the prior quarter and net income of $1.6 million or $0.01 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 26.9 percent compared to 29.8 percent in the prior quarter and in the year-ago quarter.

Fairchild reported first quarter adjusted gross margin of 27.8 percent, down 200 basis points from the prior quarter and the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted gross margin excludes accelerated depreciation related to a line closure. Adjusted net loss was $2.0 million or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.3 million or $0.10 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $8.3 million or $0.06 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. This adjusted net loss excludes the $12.6 million litigation charge reversal related to the recent favorable court ruling on the first Power Integrations lawsuit. See the Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income exhibit included in this press release for more details on the other adjustment items.

“First quarter sales and second quarter guidance are better than seasonal,” said Mark Thompson, Fairchild’s chairman and CEO. “Bookings were robust throughout the first quarter and so far through Q2 at about a $400 million quarterly rate. These strong order rates are especially evident for our direct OEM business which is booking at the highest level since 2010. We posted solid sales growth in our high voltage products serving the industrial, appliance and automotive markets as well as continued market share gains for our mobile analog and power management solutions. These markets now account for 74% of total company sales, the highest

Overall results, led by Optum’s performance, were strong across the enterprise, with year-over-year reimbursement and seasonal margin pressure in UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare Advantage and Part D prescription drug plan product lines, as expected.

Coca-Cola Per-Share Earnings Fall 13% in the First Quarter

By The Associated Press

Filed under: , , , ,

Justin Sullivan/AP

Coca-Cola Co.’s first-quarter results came in above expectations as the world’s biggest beverage maker saw global sales volume grow.

The Atlanta-based company said it earned $1.75 billion, or 39 cents a share, for the period ended March 29. That’s down from $2.1 billion, or 45 cents a share, a year earlier.

Not including one-time items such as restructuring charges, however, Coca-Cola said it earned 46 cents a share, better than the 45 cents a share analysts expected.

Net revenue declined to $11.04 billion, from $11.14 billion a year ago, hurt by foreign currency exchange rates and two fewer selling days in the period. Analysts expected $10.97 billion.

Coca-Cola Co. (KO) also announced it was starting to refranchise its U.S. business by giving bottlers expanded territories.

Approach Resources Inc. Announces Preliminary Production for First Quarter 2013 and Schedules First Quarter 2013 Conference Call for Friday, May 3, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Approach Resources Inc. today announced preliminary production for first quarter 2013 of 754 MBoe (8.4 MBoe/d), compared to 654 MBoe (7.2 MBoe/d) produced in first quarter 2012, a 15% increase. Estimated oil production for first quarter 2013 increased 63% to 310 MBbls, compared to 191 MBbls produced in first quarter 2012. Estimated production for first quarter 2013 was 41% oil, 28% NGLs and 31% natural gas, compared to 29% oil, 33% NGLs and 38% natural gas in first quarter 2012.

As previously reported, estimated production for first quarter 2013 was impacted by a third-party NGL fractionation facility repair and maintenance, decreasing our average volumes by approximately 6.1 MBoe/d beginning the second week in March. As of April 6, 2013, substantially all production was back online. Turnaround activity for NGL fractionators along the Gulf Coast typically occurs during the spring season. We currently do not expect further downtime as a result of this activity, but will provide an update if conditions change.

Beginning April 3, 2013, we began flowing oil down our joint venture pipeline, which is a 38-mile pipeline primarily in Crockett and Reagan counties. We expect that the oil pipeline will enable the Company to efficiently transport our crude oil production to market, reduce our transportation differential and provide optionality for accessing markets with superior price realizations.

JPMorgan Earnings Soar to $6.1 Billion in First Quarter

By David Schepp

Filed under: , , , ,

Mark Lennihan/AP

NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase, the country’s biggest bank by assets, says its first-quarter earnings soared, even as revenue fell slightly.

The bank made $6.1 billion in the first quarter, after stripping out payments to preferred shareholders. That was up 34 percent from the same period a year ago, when it made $4.6 billion.

On a per-share basis, that amounted to $1.59. That blew away the estimates of analysts polled by FactSet, who had been expecting $1.39.

Revenue was $25.8 billion, after stripping out the effect of an accounting charge. That beat analyst estimates of $25.7 billion, though it was down 3 percent from the same period a year ago.

Shares of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) are down 1 percent in pre-market trading, off 51 cents to $48.80.

J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. Reports Revenues and Earnings for the First Quarter 2013

  • First Quarter 2013 Revenue: $1.29 billion; up 11%
  • First Quarter 2013 Operating Income: $125 million; up 7%
  • First Quarter 2013 EPS: 61 cents vs. 57 cents

LOWELL, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– J. B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc., (NAS: JBHT) announced first quarter 2013 net earnings of $73.3 million, or diluted earnings per share of 61 cents vs. first quarter 2012 net earnings of $67.7 million, or 57 cents per diluted share.

Total operating revenue for the current quarter was $1.29 billion, compared with $1.17 billion for the first quarter 2012. Load growth of 13% in Intermodal (JBI) and 47% in Integrated Capacity Solutions (ICS), helped drive 15% and 26% increases in segment revenue, respectively. Dedicated Contract Services (DCS) segment increased operating revenue by 9%, primarily from new long-term contracts currently being implemented, while Truck (JBT) segment revenue declined primarily from a 21% reduction in fleet size.

Operating income for the current quarter totaled $125 million vs. $117 million for the first quarter 2012. Combined, JBI and ICS operating income increased by approximately $18 million on higher load volume, improved freight mix and overhead cost controls. The increase in operating income was partially offset by higher equipment costs in the asset-based business units, higher claims costs from two old claims shared by all business units, contract implementation costs related to new customers for DCS and higher employee costs with lower asset utilization for JBT.

Net interest expense for the current quarter decreased by $0.7 million due to lower debt levels. The effective income tax rate for the quarter was consistent with last year at 38.25%.

Genesee & Wyoming Reports Traffic for March 2013 and the First Quarter of 2013

GREENWICH, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) (NYS: GWR) today reported traffic volumes for March 2013 and the first quarter of 2013.

Beginning in January 2013, G&W is reporting consolidated traffic volumes including carloads from RailAmerica Inc. (RA) railroads that were previously reported separately. To provide comparative context for 2013 consolidated traffic volumes, G&W is providing supplemental 2012 carload information on a pro forma basis as though the RA railroads were owned by G&W on January 1, 2012. In addition, G&W has amended RA‘s 2012 carload information to conform with G&W’s reporting methodology.

G&W’s traffic in March 2013 was 154,077 carloads, an increase of 77,031 carloads, or 100.0%, compared to G&W’s traffic in March 2012, and an increase of 5,198 carloads, or 3.5%, compared to total March 2012 carloads pro forma for the RA acquisition. G&W’s traffic in the first quarter of 2013 was 450,304 carloads, an increase of 228,126 carloads, or 102.7%, compared to G&W’s traffic in the first quarter of 2012, and an increase of 19,387 carloads, or 4.5%, compared to total first quarter of 2012 pro forma for the RA acquisition.

The tables below set forth consolidated summary carload information for March 2013 and March 2012:

Gartner Says Worldwide PC Shipments in the First Quarter of 2013 Drop to Lowest Levels Since Second Quarter of 2009


All Regions Experienced a Decline in PC Shipments in First Quarter of 2013

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Worldwide PC shipments totaled 79.2 million units in the first quarter of 2013, a 11.2 percent decline from the first quarter of 2012, according to preliminary results by Gartner, Inc. Global PC shipments went below 80 million units for the first time since the second quarter of 2009. All regions showed a decrease in shipments, with the EMEA region experiencing the steepest decline.

“In the first quarter of 2013, it was the fourth consecutive quarter that showed a drop in worldwide PC shipments,” said Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner. “Consumers are migrating content consumption from PCs to other connected devices, such as tablets and smartphones. Even emerging markets, where PC penetration is low, are not expected to be a strong growth area for PC vendors.

“Unlike the consumer PC segment, the professional PC market, which accounts for about half of overall PC shipments, has seen growth, driven by continuing PC refreshes. Despite the fact that some regions already passed the peak of PC refresh, overall professional PC demand continued to grow.”

HP and Lenovo were in a virtual tie for the top position in the first quarter of 2013 (see Table 1). HP had a very challenging quarter, as it recorded its worst shipment decline since the acquisition of Compaq in 2003. HP‘s consumer business negatively affected its overall shipment volume, but its professional business was also under attack by competitors.

International net oil-equivalent production declined 21,000 barrels per day, largely reflecting the timing of cost recovery volumes under various production sharing contracts and weather-related downtime.
