Lear Q3 Results Improve as Chip Crunch Lessens, 2022 Guidance Unchanged; $152 FVE Maintained

Richard Hilgert Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Richard Hilgert |

Narrow-moat-rated Lear reported third-quarter earnings per share before special items of $2.33, beating the $2.12 FactSet consensus estimate by $0.21 and climbing $1.80 from $0.53 EPS reported a year ago when the chip crunch was at its worst. Results continue to be impacted by sporadic customer production, but to a lesser degree, from China's COVID-19 lockdowns, the chip crunch, the Ukraine crisis, supply chain disruption, higher raw material cost, and increased logistic expense. Revenue increased 23% to $5.2 billion from $4.3 billion last year, better than consensus by 2%. Excluding currency and acquisitions, organic revenue rose 26%, 1% point above the 25% increase in global light vehicle production adjusted to Lear’s customer base. Revenue growth was supported by new business backlog, higher customer production, and customer cost recoveries.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
