Dow 30 Earnings: Pfizer Fourth Quarter 2019

New York-based drugmaker and Dow-30 component Pfizer (PFE) reported a fourth-quarter GAAP loss of $0.06 a share, versus a $0.07 deficit in the comparable period of 2018. The modest year-over-year improvement was driven by lower production costs (-15%) and a significant reduction in restructuring charges (-48%), which helped mitigate increases in R&D (+15%) and SG&A expenses (+6%), and a 9% pullback in revenues (more below). Meantime, adjusted earnings, which exclude one-time gains, losses and other nonrecurring items, and are more closely followed by Wall Street, came in at $0.55 a share, versus $0.63 in Q4, 2018. The adjusted tally missed consensus expectations looking for $0.58 on average, owing in part to a roughly $40 million miss on the top line. Shares of PFE were trading a few percentage points lower on the release.

Dow 30 Earnings: Travelers Cos. Fourth Quarter 2019

Property/Casualty insurer Travelers (TRV) reported solid results for the December period. However, its share price has slipped moderately in trading this morning, along with the broader market averages. Travelers’ shares have performed quite well in recent weeks, and thus it may have been due for a haircut. Looking at it with more granularity, earnings from operations, which exclude capital gains and losses from investments, clocked in at $3.32 a share in the December period, which was a dime higher than our expectation and a whopping 56% higher than the previous-year period.
