Business Services Q2 Earnings on Aug 10: JAMF, FLYW & More

The widely diversified business services sector  steadily gathered steam through the second quarter of 2021, backed by strength across both manufacturing and non-manufacturing activities, relaxation of restrictions and increased vaccination drives.

The quarter witnessed growth in major manufacturing industries like machinery; electrical equipment, appliances & components; transportation equipment, food, beverage & tobacco products; printing & related support activities; computer & electronic products; and petroleum & coal products.

Among services industries, notable growth came in from retail trade; wholesale trade; transportation & warehousing; management of companies & support services; accommodation & food services; mining; utilities; construction; health care & social assistance; finance & insurance; information; educational services; and professional, scientific & technical services.

Earnings Picture So Far and Expectations

The second-quarter earnings for the S&P 500 members of the Business Services sector have been outstanding, so far. The sector had a commendable start with major players like FLEETCOR, S&P Global, Waste Management, GartnerIT, and Fiserv FISV beating on both earnings and revenues.

The latest Earnings Preview suggests that earnings for those S&P 500 members of the business services sector that have reported results grew 36.6% year over year on 18% revenue growth.

Total quarterly earnings for the S&P 500 members of the sector are currently anticipated to display 40% year-on-year growth, and revenues will likely reflect a 19.6% rise. This compares favorably with 8.5% and 3.9% growth in earnings and revenues in the first quarter of 2021, respectively.
