Trend in Estimate Revisions

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for CNH Industrial’s third-quarter earnings per share has been revised downward by a penny in the past 30 days.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for quarterly revenues suggests a year-over-year increase of 12.8% and a sequential dip of 14.4%.

Key Factors

CNH Industrial’s third-quarter 2021 results are likely to reflect the negative impact of the global supply crunch and rising commodity, freight, and logistics costs. The shortage of semiconductor supply is likely to have impacted the firm’s production, thereby inducing lost revenues. As such, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter net industrial sales (comprising Agricultural Equipment, Construction Equipment, Commercial and Specialty vehicles as well as Powertrain segments) is pegged at $6,909 million, indicating a decline from $8,490 million recorded in the prior quarter.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues from Commercial & Specialty, Construction Equipment, Agricultural Equipment, and Powertrain segments is pegged at $2,788 million, $612 million, $3,263 million and $954 million, suggesting a sequential fall of 13.4%, 24.2%, 17.8%, and 25.8%, respectively. The consensus estimate for revenues from Financial Services is $420 million, indicating a marginal decline from $439 million recorded in second-quarter 2021.

The agriculture, construction, and vehicle equipment manufacturer has been bearing the brunt of rising SG&A and R&D costs over the last few quarters and the trend is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter, thereby clipping margins. Rising capital expenditure for the development of technically-enhanced products may also have dented the company’s cash flows in third-quarter 2021.
