Read MoreHide Full Article

Aptiv PLC APTV is set to report third-quarter 2019 results on Oct 30, before the bell.

The company’s shares have gained 46.7% year to date, significantly outperforming the 9.2% rally of the industry it belongs to.

Q3 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $3.61 billion, indicating year-over-year growth of 3.5%. The top line is expected to have benefited from content per vehicle growth, market share gains and the company’s balanced customer, regional and end-market exposure.

In the second quarter of 2019, Aptiv’s revenues of $3.63 billion declined 2% year over year.

The consensus mark for earnings in the to-be-reported quarter stands at $1.27, indicating year-over-year growth of 2.4%. Strong material and manufacturing performance, overhead cost reduction and volume growth are likely to have aided the bottom-line number.

In the second quarter, adjusted earnings of $1.33 per share were down 5% on a year-over-year basis.
