Why Is HEI (HE) Down 9.3% Since Last Earnings Report?

A month has gone by since the last earnings report for Hawaiian Electric (HE). Shares have lost about 9.3% in that time frame, underperforming the S&P 500.

Will the recent negative trend continue leading up to its next earnings release, or is HEI due for a breakout? Before we dive into how investors and analysts have reacted as of late, let's take a quick look at the most recent earnings report in order to get a better handle on the important catalysts.

Hawaiian Electric Q2 Earnings Lag Estimates, Sales Up Y/Y

Hawaiian Electric reported earnings per share (EPS) of 48 cents for the second quarter of 2022, which lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 52 cents by 7.7%.

The bottom line also declined 17.2% from 58 cents per share in the prior-year quarter, primarily due to the prior year's negative provision for credit losses at American Savings Bank and a return to a more normalized provision expense due to strong loan growth.

Total Revenues

Hawaiian Electric’s total revenues of $895.6 million in the second quarter improved 31.7% from the prior-year quarter’s $680.3 million. The rise in revenues can be attributed to increased contributions from the Electric Utility and Other segments.

Segment Details

Electric Utility: Revenues in this segment totaled $818.9 million, up 36.1% year over year.

Banking: In this segment, revenues totaled $75.3 million, down 2.5% year over year.

Others: Revenues from other sources surged 26.1% to $1,410 million from $1,118 million in the year-ago quarter.

Operating Statistics

Total expenses increased 39.9% year over year to $808.9 million in the second quarter. The increase can be attributed to higher expenses in the Electric Utility and Bank segments and Other segments.

The total operating income declined 14.9% year over year to $86.7 million in the second quarter.

Net interest expenses during the quarter amounted to $24.9 million, up 7.1% from $23.3 million in the prior-year quarter.

2022 Guidance

Hawaiian Electric reiterated its 2022 EPS guidance in the range of $2.00-$2.20. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings, pegged at $2.19, lies at the higher end of the company’s guided range.
