Sherwin-Williams

The paint retailer reported first-quarter earnings of $100.2 million, or 95 cents a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $68.3 million, or 63 cents.

"All of SHW's paint and coatings divisions reported positive volumes and higher prices in the first quarter of 2012," JPMorgan analysts wrote in an April 23 report. "Unseasonably warm weather, market share gains, and a pick up in repaint and maintenance demand assisted these results. The Paint Stores group reported about 20% comparable store growth with volumes accounting for a little more than half of this growth. Similarly, PPG reported 20% growth in its US architectural paint business. Raw material cost dipped in 4Q:11 and are now rising gradually. Contract propylene prices are likely to rebound from 67 cents/lb in 1Q:12 and to 84 cents/lb by the summer but the raw material storm has passed. Titanium ore price increases and a tight chloride market should keep TiO2 pigment prices at elevated levels. We lift our 2012 EPS forecast from $6.00 to $6.15 reflecting a higher level of price gains and better volumes, and we raise our 2013 EPS forecast from $6.60 to $6.75. Our 2014 EPS projection is $7.50. We rate SHW Neutral."

United Technologies

The aerospace and industrial company reported on April 24 first-quarter earnings of $819 million, or $1.31 a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $1.7 billion, or $1.06.

"We believe investors remain concerned about H2 growth at Otis, as the pickup in high-end residential construction has not begun and competitors had taken some share following the unsuccessful pricing actions in 2011," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a report Friday. "In addition, we believe that Otis business in Spain could be an area to watch given the weaker environment in EuropeSpain is the company's fourth largest market in Europe. If both of these areas are weak through the end of 2012, we believe it could absorb much of the $50$75MM of yr/yr segment profit growth included in the guidance."
