What's in Store for Triton International (TRTN) Q1 Earnings?

Zacks Equity Research
·3 mins read

Triton International Limited TRTN is scheduled to report first-quarter 2020 results on Apr 24, before market opens.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for first-quarter 2020 earnings is pegged at $1.03 in the past 60 days.

Let’s delve into the factors that might have influenced the company’s performance in the quarter.

Triton International’s overall performance is likely to have been affected by low demand for new containers and decreased container pickup volumes. Travel disruptions from the COVID-19 outbreak are likely to have dented factory output and contract export volumes from China in the March quarter.

Furthermore, the company’s first-quarter performance is likely to have been affected by seasonal sluggishness and higher selling, general and administrative expenses. Reduced lease rates are also expected to have made an impact on Jan-Mar results.

However, the signing of the phase one trade deal in January between the United States and China is likely to have aided volumes to some extent amid the coronavirus pandemonium. This is because coronavirus-related woes are likely to have been felt only in the final month of the quarter to be reportred.
