  • Valspar Reports Weak Outlook; Shares Fall (VAL)

    Shares of paints and coatings company The Valspar Corporation (VAL) tumbled over 6% on Tuesday morning following the release of the company's third quarter results and weak earnings outlook..

Total revenue for the quarter came in at $1.089 billion, from $1.078 billion a year ago. Analysts expected to see revenue of $1.13 billion. CEO of VAL Gary Hendrickson noted, "we continue to drive strong volume growth from our new business initiatives in the consumer paint, packaging and wood product lines. However, sales and earnings finished slightly below our expectations for the quarter due to continued macro-economic headwinds in key general industrial market segments and certain international regions." Looking forward, the company has cut its valuation range from $3.60-$3.60 to $3.45-$3.55 per share. This estimate would fall below the analysts' estimate of $3.70 per share. The company noted that it expects to see weak demand for coating products. Valspar shares were down $4.43, or 6.26%, during Tuesday morning trading. The stock is up 6% YTD.
