  • National Instruments Reports Little Growth From 2012, Misses Estimates (NATI)

    While National Instruments Corporation (NATI) did not beat analyst expectations this quarter, there was growth from last year's disappointing numbers. With analysts estimating earnings per share at 19 cents and revenue at $308.7 million in Q2, the earnings report that came in after the bell Monday afternoon was a let down. Revenue was just at $296 million and EPS just scratched 12 cents. The results were far from the mark, but there was at least 1% growth from 2012's abysmal Q2 results. National Instruments shares were up 23 cents, or 0.76%, at the end of Monday trading. The stock is up 14.5% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of National Instruments Corporation (NATI)  have a 1.83% yield based on Monday afternoon's price of $30.52. National Instruments Corporation (NATI)  is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

  • National Instruments Backs Q3 Revenue Forecast, Ups Low-End of Profit Estimates (NATI)

    Testing software and equipment maker National Instruments Corp (NATI) reaffirmed its third quarter revenue guidance last Tuesday, and boosted the low end of its earnings outlook. The Austin, Texas-based company said it still expects revenue to range from $158 million to $168 million in the third quarter, but raised its profit range estimate to 6 cents to 12 cents per share. Excluding items, it seems 11 cents to 17 cents per share. On average, Wall Street analysts expect a profit of 9 cents per share on revenue of $163.3 million. National Instruments shares rose 68 cents, or +2.6%, in morning trading Wednesday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of NATI since our early June coverage began last year, and the stock was trading at $32. The company has a 1.85% dividend yield, based on last night’s closing stock price of $25.88. The stock has technical support in the $20-$22 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $30 price level. We would remain on the sidelines for now. National Instruments Corp (NATI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars.

  • National Instruments Says Q2 Sales to Fall Below Estimates (NATI)

    Measurement and automation products maker National Instruments Corp (NATI) warned late Tuesday that its second quarter sales would fall below Wall Street Estimates. The Austin, Texas-based company said it expects second quarter sales to range from $145 million to $155 million, which is well below the average Wall Street analyst estimate of $163.5 million. NI has traditionally depended on a surge of large orders in June, but the company said it doesn't expect that influx of orders this year. NI said it expects second quarter earnings to range from a loss of 4 cents per share to a profit of 4 cents per share. Exclusing special one-time items, the company expects a range of break-even to a profit of 8 cents per share. On average, Wall Street analysts expect a profit of 7 cents per share. National Instruments is scheduled to deliver its second quarter earnings report on July 23. The company's shares fell 65 cents, or -2.7%, in morning trading Wednesday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of NATI since our early June coverage began last year, and the stock was trading at $32. The company has a 2.01% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $23.83. The stock has technical support in the $16-20 price area. If the shares can rebound from this morning's drop, we see overhead resistance around the $27-28 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. National Instruments Corp (NATI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars.

  • National Instruments Ramping Up its Sales Force (NATI)

    National Instruments (NATI) just reported sales and EPS guidance that was above analyst expectations. Sales were up 17% to nearly $211 million. The company's expanding product portfolio is the engine it is relying on for expansion into new application areas. Management is raising guidance for the rest of the year, and will ramp up its sales force in anticipation of a quicker recovery in the industrial economy. This strategy is about timing, and we think the company may be putting itself in the right position to benefit ahead of its competitors. For investors, we'd like to see the stock price show some strength here and push a bit higher, before we add the shares to our "Recommended" list. For now, NATI has earned a spot on our "upgrade watchlist." The company has a dividend yield of 1.53%, based on last night's closing stock price of $1.53%. National Instruments (NATI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
