Earnings Reviews and Previews

By David Peltier | 05/05/16 - 11:55 AM EDT

This Alert is a recap of key events in the model portfolio over the past week.

Earnings Review

Pfizer (PFE:NYSE) posted better-than-expected quarterly results on Tuesday. The company earned $0.67 a share in the first quarter, as revenue increased 19% from the previous year to $13.01 billion. Pfizer saw higher demand for several of its key products and also benefited from a weaker U.S. dollar in the period.

The stock gained fractionally over the past week and recently changed hands around $33.52. We maintain the company is attractive to purchase for the 3.6% dividend yield.

Earnings Preview

Kohl's (KSS:NYSE) will announce quarterly results on the morning of May 12. The consensus analyst estimates call for earnings of $0.39 a share in the fiscal first quarter (ended April), down from $0.63 a year ago, on $4.14 billion of revenue. Management has exceeded profit expectations four of the past five quarters.

The retailer will host a conference call at 8:30 a.m. ET May 12 that investors can access at 800-230-1074, using the passcode: 386534. Both the live call and a replay will also be available at the company's website (click here). On the call, we'll be listening for any guidance from management.

Ahead of the numbers, the stock fell 7% over the past week and recently changed hands around $41.84. We maintain that Kohl's is attractive to purchase for the 4.8% dividend yield.

Company Updates

Ford Motor (F:NYSE) said Tuesday that April U.S. sales grew 4% year over year, which was just short of expectations. Demand continues to be driven by trucks, vans and SUVs and average pricing was up $1,500, which was nearly double the industry average.

The shares are down 5% over the past week and recently changed hands around $13.36. We continue to believe the company is attractive to purchase for the 4.5% dividend yield.

Tompkins Financial (TMP:NYSE) lost 3% over the past week and recently changed hands around $63.68. That said, we continue to believe shares are attractive for the 2.8% dividend yield.

Waste Management (WM:NYSE) gained more than 3% over the past week and recently changed hands around $60.29. Even though the stock is at record highs, we maintain the company is attractive for the 2.7% dividend yield.

Dividend Reminders

Pfizer declared its latest quarterly dividend of $0.30 (3.6% yield) a share on April 28. Investors at the close of trading on Tuesday will qualify for the payment on June 1.

Sonoco Products (SON:NYSE) investors at the close of trading on Tuesday will qualify for the next quarterly dividend of $0.37 a share (3.2% yield), to be paid on June 10.

Southern (SO:NYSE) investors at the close of trading on Wednesday will qualify for the next quarterly dividend of $0.56 a share (4.4% yield), to be paid on June 6.

David S. Peltier
