Factors Likely to Influence Snap-on's (SNA) Q2 Earnings

Snap-on Incorporated SNA is likely to register year-over-year growth in its the top and bottom lines when it reports second-quarter 2022 results on Jul 21.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings is currently pegged at $3.91 a share, suggesting growth of 4% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The consensus mark has been unchanged over the past 30 days. The consensus estimate for quarterly revenues is pegged at $1,101 million, indicating a rise of 1.8% from the year-ago quarter’s actuals.

In the last reported quarter, the company posted an earnings beat of 8.7%. It delivered an earnings surprise of 11.2% in the trailing four quarters, on average.

Key Factors to Note

Snap-on has been gaining from its value-creation model, which focuses on enhancing the franchise network, improving relationships with repair shop owners and managers, and expanding critical industries in emerging markets. Management has also been leveraging capabilities in the automotive repair space and expanding the customer base, particularly in the automotive repair and critical industries.

The company has been on track with its Rapid Continuous Improvement process and other cost-reduction initiatives. The RCI process is designed to enhance organizational effectiveness, generate savings and minimize costs. Management has been making efforts to boost customer services along with enhancing manufacturing and supply chain capabilities through the RCI initiatives and further investments. All the aforesaid factors should have contributed to the company’s top and bottom-line performances in the to-be-reported quarter.

However, Snap-on has been facing potential threats of new COVID-19 variants and supply-chain headwinds. Rising cost inflation, stemming from higher raw material expenses and increased transportation costs, is expected to have been concerning. Unfavorable foreign currency movement is also likely to have acted as a deterrent.
