Eaton (ETN) to Report Q2 Earnings: What's in the Cards?

Eaton Corporation ETN is scheduled to release second-quarter 2022 earnings on Aug 2, before the opening bell. The power management company delivered an earnings surprise of 3.5% in the trailing four quarters, on average.

Factors to Note

Eaton’s second-quarter earnings are likely to have benefited from lower shares outstanding than the year-ago level. The ongoing improvement in end-market conditions and organic sales growth are expected to have boosted earnings in the second quarter.

Acquisitions and divestitures, and negative currency translation are likely to have weighed on Eaton’s second-quarter earnings.

Expectations

Eaton expects second-quarter earnings of $1.78-$1.88 per share. ETN anticipates organic revenue growth of 9-11%. The segmental operating margin is expected to be 19.1-19.5% for the quarter.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings is pegged at $1.82 per share, indicating an improvement of 5.81% from the prior-year reported figure.
