Jabil Circuit Preview: Earnings Returning To Healthy Levels

Shares of Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE: JBL) are surging on Tuesday, ahead of the announcement of the company’s third-quarter financial results, scheduled for Wednesday after the market closes. And, as it can be seen in the chart below, expectations point toward a huge year-over-year increase in earnings.

In the third quarter of 2014, the firm registered a net loss of ($0.06) per share on revenue of $3.786 billion. For the current quarter, management guided earnings come in at $0.49 per share and revenue of $4.45 billion. The Street expects consensus earnings in line with guidance, although on slightly higher sales of $4.463 billion (Estimize).

The crowd is marginally more bullish and projects consensus earnings of $0.50 per share on revenue of $4.473 billion.

The table above shows a history of Jabil’s earnings, sales and growth rates versus estimates.
