Sherwin Williams (SHW) is expected to post adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $3.17 in 1Q18, an increase of ~39.7% YoY (year-over-year). SHW’s projected increase in adjusted EPS could be driven by higher revenue growth, the continued synergy impact from the Valspar acquisition, and a reduction in effective tax rates. In 1Q17, SHW reported SG&A expenses at 36.8% of the revenues, which implies a gain of 440 basis points on a year-over-year basis.
Sherwin-Williams is expected to report revenue of $4.0 billion in 1Q18, a 43.1% increase from 1Q17’s $2.8 billion.
