Amphenol reported solid fourth-quarter 2015 results as adjusted earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.04. The diversification in end markets, with a consistent focus on technology innovation and customer support through all phases of the economic cycle, enable the company to post strong results. A balanced organic and inorganic growth model, a lean and flexible cost structure, and an agile and entrepreneurial management team remain tailwinds. The acquisition of FCI Asia is further expected to be accretive to Amphenol’s earnings. Amphenol also generates solid cash flow and has historically returned significant cash through a combination of share repurchases and dividends to reward shareholders with risk-adjusted returns. However, increasing cost of raw materials, cut-throat competition and foreign currency translation remain headwinds for the company in a challenging macroeconomic environment.
