Corning Incorporated, Inc. GLW is scheduled to report second-quarter 2022 results on Jul 26, before the market opens. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 10.2%. It pulled off a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 4.1%, on average.
The New York based communications components provider is expected to have recorded year-over-year higher revenues, driven by strong sales across its specialty materials, life sciences and display technologies.
Factors at Play
Corning is expected to have benefited from the letter of intent signed with 5E Advanced Materials to get supply of boron specialty materials. These materials will be used in the manufacturing of Corning products. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Specialty Materials is pegged at $517 million. The figure indicates a rise of 7% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
The consensus estimate for Life Sciences stands at $324 million, which implies an increase from $312 million reported a year ago. The consensus estimate for Display Technologies stands at $943 million, which implies an increase from $939 million reported a year ago, while that for Optical Communications is $1,253 million, up from $1,075 million in the year-earlier quarter. However, the consensus estimate for Environmental Technologies is slightly down to $404 million from $407 million reported a year ago.
For the June quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for total revenues is pegged at $3,784 million, which indicates growth of 8% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The consensus estimate for adjusted earnings per share is pegged at 57 cents, suggesting an increase of 7.5% year over year.
