Encore Wire Corporation WIRE is scheduled to report second-quarter 2022 results on Jul 25, after market close.
Encore Wire’s first-quarter 2022 adjusted earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate and increased year over year. The company has a trailing four quarters earnings surprise of 323.8%, on average.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings is pegged at $4.15 per share, suggesting a decline of 53% year over year. The estimate has been unchanged in the past 30 days.
Key Factors to Note
Encore Wire is anticipated to have benefited from robust demand and higher shipment volume for copper and aluminum wire and higher prices. These factors are likely to have contributed to the company’s top-line performance in the quarter.
With new capacity coming online this year, the company remains well positioned to capture incremental market share and volume growth in the current economic environment.
Encore Wire’s repurposing of the vacated distribution center to expand manufacturing capacity and extend market reach are likely to have been tailwinds in the quarter. The company’s investments to modernize manufacturing facilities and its focus on operational execution and product innovation will likely have aided growth in the second quarter. Its superior order fill rates, vertically integrated business model, cost-reduction actions and effective pricing actions are likely to have improved margin performance in the June-end quarter.
Despite healthy demand for its products, supply-chain challenges might have dented its performance in the to-be-reported quarter. Raw-material inflation and a labor shortage are expected to have affected the company’s margins and profitability in the second quarter.
