Delphi Technologies (DLPH) Rallies 6.9% Since Q2 Earnings

Read MoreHide Full Article

Shares of Delphi Technologies have gained 6.9% since it reported its second-quarter 2020 results on Aug 5 against the 2.9% decline of the industry it belongs to.

 

The outperformance can be attributed to the company’s better-than-expected second-quarter 2020 results and healthy cash flow.

Adjusted loss of 58 cents per share was narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 34.8% and revenues of $628 million beat the consensus mark by 13.2%.

During the reported quarter, the company generated $10 million of cash from operating activities. Also, cash proceeds of nearly $40 million earned from the sale of a technical center further strengthens the company’s balance sheet.

Notably, earnings fell more than 100% year over year.

Total revenues decreased 44% year over year on a reported basis and 41% on an adjusted basis (adjustments were made for currency exchange). The downside was mainly due to lower global production and the closure of customer-production sites related to the coronavirus outbreak and the downward trend in passenger car diesel fuel injection systems in Europe, partially offset by solid growth in  Power Electronics.
