  • Air Products & Chemicals Q3 Profit Slips; Tightens Fiscal 2013 Outlook (APD)

    Before the opening bell on Tuesday, industrial chemicals producer Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (APD) reported that its third quarter net income declined about 40% year-over-year, as higher costs offset an increase in revenues. On adjusted basis, earnings were able to meet Wall Street estimates, while revenues topped views. The Allentown, Pennsylvania-based company posted a third quarter net income of $288.4 million, or $1.36 per share, down 40% from $484.5 million, or $2.26 per share, earned in the same period a year ago. Air Products' income from continuing operations came in at $1.36 per share, down from $1.66 last year.

The company's third quarter sales advanced 9% to $2.55 billion from $2.34 billion last year. Analysts were expecting the company to post revenues of $2.53 billion. However, underlying sales declined 2% year-over-year due to the company's previously announced decision to exit the Polyurethane Intermediates business. John McGlade, CEO of Air Products & Chemicals, said, "Productivity and solid execution offset continued economic weakness, enabling us to deliver earnings within guidance. We remain focused on delivering on our commitments and executing on our $3 billion backlog and we expect these projects to be immediately accretive to earnings and cash flow as they come online." Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, the company said it expects adjusted earnings from continuing operations to come in somehwere between $1.44 aand $1.50 per share. Analysts, meanwhile, are expecting the company to post adjusted earnings of $1.47 per share in the fourth quarter. For fiscal 2013, Air Products now expects adjusted earnings to come in between $5.47 and $5.53 per share. This is down from the company's previous fiscal year guidance of earnings between $5.45 and $5.60 per share. Analysts are expecting the company to post adjusted earnings of $5.50 per share in fiscal 2013. Air Products shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Tuesday.

  • Goldman Sachs Downgrades Air Products & Chemicals to "Neutral" (APD)

    Goldman Sachs reported on Monday that it has lowered its rating on gases and chemicals maker, Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (APD) . The firm has downgraded APD from a "Buy" to "Neutral," and has given the company a $97 price target. This price target suggests a 5% upside from the stock's current price of $91.88. Analyst Robert Koort noted, "we now see more balanced risk/reward in APD shares." "Reversion of APD's forward multiple to peers – APD now trades at 16.0X NTM EPS, narrowing the gap to PX over the last six months (18.7X NTM EPS) as the discount is more in-line with its history. We see the current discount as appropriately reflective of APD's more challenging geographic and business mix positioning." Koort added, "with meaningful compression of this valuation gap, we believe future outperformance vs. peers depends on positive EPS estimate revisions, which we are now less certain of given APD's relative overexposure to Europe and China." Air Products & Chemicals shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Monday. The stock is up 9% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (APD) have a 3.09% yield based on Friday's closing price of $91.88. Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (APD) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
