What to Expect When CEMEX (CX) Releases Earnings Results Tomorrow

NEW YORK (TheStreet) – CEMEX is scheduled to report its earnings results for the second quarter of 2015 before the market open on Wednesday morning.

Analysts are expecting a year-over-year decrease in earnings per share and revenue for the quarter ended June 2015.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimate CEMEX will report earnings of 2 cents per share on revenue of $4.04 billion for the 2015 second quarter.

Last year, CEMEX reported earnings of 6 cents per share on revenue of $4.15 billion for the second quarter.

CEMEX, based in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, manufactures cement, ready-mix concrete and other construction materials.

Shares of CEMEX are trading lower by 1.33% to $8.89 on Tuesday afternoon.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates CEMEX SAB DE CV as a Hold with a ratings score of C-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

“We rate CEMEX SAB DE CV (CX) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its impressive record of earnings per share growth, notable return on equity and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself and poor profit margins.”

Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows:

  • CEMEX SAB DE CV reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. This trend suggests that the performance of the business is improving. During the past fiscal year, CEMEX SAB DE CV continued to lose money by earning -$0.35 versus -$0.64 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.05 versus -$0.35).
  • Despite the weak revenue results, CX has outperformed against the industry average of 21.0%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 7.6%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company’s bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
  • The gross profit margin for CEMEX SAB DE CV is currently lower than what is desirable, coming in at 30.37%. Regardless of CX’s low profit margin, it has managed to increase from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -4.37% trails the industry average.
  • CX’s stock share price has done very poorly compared to where it was a year ago: Despite any rallies, the net result is that it is down by 29.75%, which is also worse that the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Investors have so far failed to pay much attention to the earnings improvements the company has managed to achieve over the last quarter. Naturally, the overall market trend is bound to be a significant factor. However, in one sense, the stock’s sharp decline last year is a positive for future investors, making it cheaper (in proportion to its earnings over the past year) than most other stocks in its industry. But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.

Fomento tendrá 'luz verde' la próxima semana para abrir el proceso de selección del competidor de Renfe


El Ministerio de Fomento prevé tener ‘luz verde’ la próxima semana para poder iniciar el proceso de selección del primer operador ferroviario privado que entrará a competir con Renfe en transporte de viajeros en tren por el AVE a Levante.

Fomento espera recibir la próxima semana el preceptivo dictamen del Consejo de Estado a los pliegos del concurso público que lanzará para elegir a dicho competidor privado, según informó la ministra de Fomento, Ana Pastor, que ratificó que mantiene su objetivo de abrir a la competencia el tráfico de viajeros en tren.

“El proceso está en marcha”, ratificó Pastor durante su intervención en la rueda de prensa posterior al Consejo de Ministros. “Esperamos que el Consejo de Estado emita el dictamen sobre el mismo la próxima semana y, a partir de ahí, continuará el proceso”, detalló Pastor.

Según el plan diseñado por Fomento, una vez que se elija por concurso público al primer operador ferroviario privado, éste contará con un plazo de seis meses para comenzar a prestar servicio.

Entre las empresas privadas interesadas en entrar en este mercado, y que ya cuentan con licencia ferroviaria, figuran las constructoras ACS, Acciona, Ferrovial y Comsa, las compañías de transporte en autobús Alsa e Interbús, el grupo Globalia y la firma andaluza Eco Rail.

Fomento ha diseñado un proceso de apertura a la competencia progresivo, de forma que en una primera fase de siete años se elegirá a un único operador privado, que sólo competirá con Renfe en el corredor a Levante, tanto en la línea AVE como en la convencional.

An iron ore civil war plays out on social media in Australia

“Our family. Our jobs. Our future,” is the message conveyed on the Facebook page and Twitter feed. Gazing out from the screen are a blonde woman, two blonde children, a pair of sheepdogs - and a miner wearing overalls.

This is the all-Australian family, with the mining sector at its heart, as envisaged by a campaign called “Our Iron Ore”. It is one of two competing public relations initiatives embroiled in bitter argument in Australia over this abundant commodity.

As the patriotic element of the “Our” campaign suggests, iron ore is anything but prosaic in Australia, whose economy relies heavily on the hundreds of millions of tonnes sucked in annually by China’s steelmaking industry. In Western Australia’s Pilbara region, the iron ore heartland, its price movements are part of everyday conversation.

In 2011, the price of iron ore scaled the heights of $190 per tonne and brought a bonanza for Australia. Four years later, the price has slumped by about 75 per cent: this month it fell below $45/t. Thousands of jobs are being cut and smaller, domestic miners are under pressure.

What has ensued is an Australian iron ore civil war, in which the main antagonists are the miners themselves.

Behind the “Our Iron Ore” campaign is an Australian miner called Fortescue Metals Group and its combative founder and chairman, Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest. It blames the price slump on multinational rivals - meaning BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto - and accuses them of harming Australian interests by flooding the iron ore market with excess supply, driving down industry profits and tax revenue and putting jobs at risk.

Iron ore taxes “help pay for schools, roads, police stations and pensions”, the campaign says, adding that the sector needs a “sustainable, Australian-focused future”.

Such pro-Australia arguments seemed to strike a chord. Even Tony Abbott, prime minister, mused on whether an inquiry into the workings of the iron ore market would be sensible.

David Flanagan, managing director of a junior producer called Atlas Iron that was rescued from oblivion by a complex deal with its suppliers and contractors, backs the idea of a parliamentary inquiry, saying ordinary Australians need to understand how the iron ore price is set and how the industry works.

Mr Flanagan says the rhetoric of BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto is partly to blame for the drop in prices, with their plans to keep expanding spooking many investors and traders.

The multinationals are hitting back through the Minerals Council of Australia, a sector lobby group, saying restricting output would not work. The council has set up a rival online and social media campaign called “Iron Ore Facts”, promising to address “myths” put out about the industry.

One fact - or at least prediction - is that iron ore will be worth $600bn to Australia’s economy over the next 10 years, more than in the past decade.

“If Australia’s iron ore production is capped, competitors in the global market place would seize the opportunity to fill the gap,” the campaign says. “The Australian government can’t control global markets.”

Indeed, Mr Forrest’s arguments that miners should agree an output cap piqued the interest of Australia’s competition authorities. And the idea of an inquiry - branded a waste of money by Andrew Mackenzie, BHP’s chief executive - was rejected by the government.

With many analysts thinking iron ore prices could go lower, the arguments are set to run. Future historians of this part of the Australian commodities downturn may find much to mine in the rival digital campaigns, just as the miners have found fortune in the Pilbara’s riches.
