Factors to Consider
The improving industry in the United States and Europe, along with rising shares, is likely to drive Goodyear’s volume and mix growth. This is likely to have a positive influence on the soon-to-be-released quarterly results.
However, deteriorating market conditions in China, increased raw-material costs and a reduced price are a few concerns for Goodyear, which are likely to adversely affect first-quarter 2019 performance.
Our proven model does not conclusively predict that Goodyear is likely to beat on earnings this quarter. This is because, a stock needs to have a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) for this to happen. But that is not the case here as you will see below.
Earnings ESP: Goodyear has an Earnings ESP of 92.86% as the Most Accurate Estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate are pegged at 9 cents and 5 cents, respectively. You can uncover the best stocks to buy or sell before they’re reported with our Earnings ESP Filter.
Zacks Rank: The company currently carries a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell).
Note that we caution against Rank #4 (Sell) and 5 stocks going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is witnessing negative estimate revisions.
