Hexcel Corporation’s (HXL) third-quarter revenues witness a 49.9% decline year over year, primarily due to the impacts caused by the pandemic.
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 20, 2020/ Hexcel Corp.
Shares of Hexcel Corp. plunged 7.8% in Monday’s extended trading session after the industrial material company reported dismal 3Q results. The company’s top and bottom line missed analysts’ expectations mainly due to a significant reduction in demand for its products amid the COVID-19 pandemic. (See HXL stock analysis on TipRanks).Hexcel’s (HXL) 3Q revenues dropped 49.9% to $286.9 million year-on-year and below the Street consensus of $361 million. The aerospace manufacturer reported an adjusted loss per share of $0.29 for the quarter, compared with the year-ago quarter’s adjusted EPS of $0.90. Analysts had expected EPS of $0.08.Hexcel reported a decline in revenues across all its market segments. Sales across its Commercial Aerospace, Industrial, and Space & Defense divisions fell 66.6%, 35.8% and 0.9%, respectively. The company noted that Boeing (BA) 737 MAX sales remain at a “very low level” adding that further production reductions announced at the end of July 2020 by Airbus and Boeing are leading to supply chain destocking.Following the results, Cowen & Co. analyst Gautam Khanna reiterated his Hold rating and the price target of $34 (6.5% downside potential). In a note to investors, Khanna wrote, “Severe commercial aerospace OE (original equipment) destocking drove a big Q3 sales/EPS miss. We expect HXL’s stock to de-rate and Street C21-22E (Calendar 2021-2022 Estimate) to drop as investors re-baseline OE build rate expectations.”Currently, the Street is also sidelined on the stock. The Hold analyst consensus is based on 8 Holds, 1 Buy, and 3 Sells. With shares down 50.4% year-to-date, the average price target of $37.33 implies a moderate upside potential of 2.7% to current levels.Related News: United Airlines Adds 8 New Routes To Boost Latin America Presence Halliburton 3Q Sales Miss The Street; Shares Decline AMC Spikes 14% As Movie Theatres To Reopen; Street Sees 70% Upside More recent articles from Smarter Analyst: * PPG Slips In After-Market As 3Q Sales Volume Drops * Tesla 3Q California Car Registrations Slip 13% – Report * Juniper Snaps Up 128 Technology For $450M To Bolster AI-Portfolio * AbbVie Submits US, EU Rinvoq Applications For Atopic Dermatitis
