FLS’s management has indicated that its current upstream oil and gas challenges could be more severe and could last for longer than anticipated. FLS’s strategy to combat this inherent business risk will be watched closely in its 2Q16 results.
Between April 1, 2016, and July 6, 2016, FLS rose by 2.2%, compared to the ~1.6% rise of the Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLI).
FLS has missed analysts’ estimates for its quarterly revenues in five of the last eight quarters.
Flowserve’s revenue so far
FLS’s 1Q16 revenue was $947.2 million, nearly 7.6% above the market consensus. This was on account of improved execution and short-term demand. The company’s Engineered Product segment’s original equipment sales rose by 17%.
Emcor Group (EME), Graco (GGG), and Xylem (XYL) are some of FLS’s peers operating in the flow management equipment space. However, FLS can’t be strictly compared to any other company due to its diversified product base and revenue stream.
Emcor expects its 2Q16 revenue to be $1.7 billion, a rise of 6.7% compared to 2Q15. Similarly, Graco expects its 2Q16 revenue to be $352 million, 4.9% higher than its 1Q15 revenue. Xylem expects its 2Q16 revenue to be $929 million, 1.0% higher than its 2Q15 revenue.
