Tax credits to propel earnings in 3Q16

The consensus estimate among Wall Street analysts is for Rockwell Collins’s (COL) adjusted EPS (earnings per share) to rise by 19% on a year-over-year basis to $1.58. Analysts expect revenues to increase by 4.2% to ~$1.4 billion in 3Q16.

Rockwell Collins was able to increase its earnings in 2Q16. This occurred despite a sales drop due to the extension of the US research and development tax credit, which reduced its effective tax rate from 32.4% in 2Q15 to 26.8% in 2Q16.

The company expects these tax credits to accrue in the third quarter as well, which would reduce the tax rates to the mid-teens. Full-year tax rates are expected to be ~22%–23%. These credits are one-off gains, and the tax rate is expected to return to 30% in the next fiscal year.

Rockwell Collins’s fiscal 2016 forecast

In its last earnings call, the management of Rockwell Collins reaffirmed its annual guidance.
