  • Airgas Beats Q1 Revenue Estimates, Falls Short on EPS (ARG)

    On Thursday, Airgas Inc (ARG) announced its first quarter fiscal 2014 earnings for the period ended June 30, 2013, with revenue on the rise slightly and EPS coming in lower than last year's same quarter. The Pennsylvania-based company reported EPS for the quarter at $1.14, which was down 1 cent from a year-ago's EPS and 2 cents below analysts' estimates of $1.16. Revenue for Q1 2014 came in $1.28 billion, which was a 2% rise from last year's same quarter, and just above analysts' expectations of $1.27 billion. The company cited "the impact of continued economic uncertainty and sluggish business conditions on its diversified customer base, as well as a greater than expected negative impact on its refrigerants business from the recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruling on R-22 production allowances," as reasons for its lackluster performance this quarter. Looking forward to next quarter, the company gave guidance for earnings per diluted share at $1.20 to $1.27, and FY2014 to be in the range of $5 to $5.15. Shares of Airgas were inactive during pre-market trading. The company's stock is up 7.99% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Airgas Inc.

  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch Downgrades Airgas to "Underperform" On Slowdown of Sale Growth (ARG)

    On Monday, analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch downgraded industrial products distributor Airgas, Inc. (ARG) , citing a number of factors for the downgrade including a slowdown of sales growth. The analysts downgraded ARG from "Neutral" to "Underperform" with a price target of $94, down from $96. This new valuation suggests a 4% downside to Friday's closing price of $98.02. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst noted, “Our change reflects: (1) downward revisions to our estimates and PO given deceleration of organic sales growth; (2) our below-consensus view of F2014 EPS; (3) uncertain prospects for US packaged gas demand driven by weakness in non-residential construction; (4) Airgas' reliance on incremental, SAP-enabled revenue growth to meet Street earnings expectations for F2014, and implications for valuation; and (5) our view of valuation as Airgas' share price exceeds our PO.” Airgas shares were down $1.15, or -1.17%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up +13.41% over the past year. The Bottom Line Shares of Airgas (ARG) have a dividend yield of 1.63% based on Friday's closing price of $98.02 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.60 per share. Airgas, Inc.
