  • DuPont Q3 Earnings Rise; Beating Estimates (DD)

    On Tuesday, DuPont (DD) reported higher third quarter earnings, which came in above analysts estimates. The rise in earnings for the quarter reflected higher profits in the majority of the company's operating segments. The Wilmington, DE based company reported third quarter earnings of $285 million, or 30 cents per share, up from just $5 million, which was a breakeven in EPS last year. Excluding special items, earnings were $426 million, or 45 cents per share, up from $405 million, or 43 cents per share last year. On average, analysts expected to see earnings of 41 cents per share. Total revenue came in at $7.735 billion from $7.390 billion last year; however, analysts expected to see revenue of $7.78 billion. Agriculture sales increased 15% to $1.633 billion during the quarter. The rise in sales was primarily due to increased insecticide volumes and higher seed prices in Latin America. Performance Materials sales rose 3% to $1.663 billion, while sales in the Electronics & Communications segment climbed 5% to $638 million and sales in the Industrial Biosciences segment increased 4% to $305 million. Sales for the company's Performance Chemicals and Nutrition & Health segment dipped 1%. The segment's earnings dropped 38% during the quarter. DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman commented: "We executed well against our plans. Third quarter sales volumes and operating earnings were stronger across most businesses compared to a soft quarter last year. While we expect overall sequential growth in industrial market demand will remain subdued, fourth quarter operating earnings will be up substantially from last year." DuPont shares were mostly flat during premarket trading Tuesday. The stock is up 32% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of DuPont (DD) have a 3.03% yield, based on Monday's closing price of $59.46. DuPont (DD) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

  • DuPont Q2 Earnings Decline, But Top Estimates (DD)

    Before the bell on Tuesday, chemical company DuPont (DD) reported its earnings, and managed to beat analysts' EPS estimates while posting a decline in earnings from the same period last year. In the second quarter, DuPont saw net income of $1.03 billion as compared to last year's same quarter net income of $1.17 billion. Operating earnings for the quarter were posted at $1.19 billion, or $1.28 per share, which beat analysts' estimates of $1.27 EPS by one cent. The company's net sales for the quarter were $9.84 billion versus Q2 2012's posted net sales of $9.92 billion, a 1% decline. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimated that revenue would come in at $10.01 billion. Dupont partly racked up its earnings decline to the lower price of titanium dioxide, and CEO Ellen Kullman had the following comments about the company's performance: "We have been carefully weighing the strong cash generation of our performance chemicals businesses against their cyclicality and lower growth profile, as well as where the power of DuPont's integrated science can be differentiated. We are evaluating options for our performance chemicals businesses as part of our ongoing plan to deliver higher growth and greater value creation for our shareholders." Looking forward, DuPont believes that operating income for full year 2013 will come in at $3.85 per share, while the analyst consensus is $3.80. DuPont's shares were up 3.9% during pre-market trading. The stock has gained nearly 25% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of DuPont (DD) have a yield of 3.15% based on Monday's closing price of $57.17 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.80.
