Factors to Consider
The improving industry in the United States and Europe along with rising shares is likely to aid 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, high raw-material costs and a reduced price are a few concerns for Goodyear, which are likely to adversely affect second-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 -22.98% as the Most Accurate Estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate are pegged at 31 cents and 40 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 #3.
Note that we caution against Rank #4 and 5 (Sell-rated) stocks going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is witnessing negative estimate revisions.
