Will Strong Sales Momentum Boost Teledyne (TDY) Q1 Earnings?

Teledyne Technologies Incorporated TDY is expected to release its first quarter 2022 results on April 27 before market open.

Teledyne has a four-quarter earnings surprise of 24.72% on average. The strong performance of the majority of TDY’s segments in the first quarter should have contributed favorably to the company’s overall results.

Digital imaging – a key revenue enabler

The Teledyne FLIR business has been a key driver of Digital Imaging revenue since the FLIR acquisition. It is likely to have again contributed favorably to Digital Imaging segment revenues in the next quarter. In addition, the strong growth in sales of industrial and scientific sensors and vision systems should have benefited the segment’s turnover in the first quarter.

Zacks Consensus Estimate for First Quarter Digital Imaging Segment Revenue Set at $756 Million, Indicates a Significant 187% Improvement Over Reported Revenues in the Year-To-Date Quarter previous.

Instrumentation revenue – another growth driver

Revenues from the Instrumentation business are also expected to have continued their pace of growth in the first quarter. Rising sales of electronic test and measurement instruments, marine instrumentation and environmental instrumentation are expected to have boosted revenue in this segment.

Zacks’ consensus estimate for Instrumentation segment revenue in the first quarter is set at $297 million, indicating a 3.5% improvement over revenue reported in the prior year quarter.

Aerospace and defense electronics revenues could remain high

Robust sales volume of Teledyne’s commercial aerospace products, supported by the significant recovery in the commercial aerospace segment, is expected to have supported Aerospace and Defense Electronics segment revenues in the first quarter. Additionally, higher defense and space electronics sales are expected to have had a positive impact on segment revenue in the soon-to-be-released quarter.

Zacks’ consensus estimate for Aerospace and Defense Electronics revenue in the first quarter is set at $161 million, indicating 6.6% growth over reported revenue in the year-quarter previous.

Engineering systems performance remains dismal

Engineered systems revenue is likely to have been impacted by lower sales of engineered products. Additionally, lower sales in the turbine engine business, mainly due to its exit from the business last year, is expected to have once again impacted the performance of this segment in the reporting quarter. Zacks consensus estimate for Engineered Systems revenue in the first quarter is set at $102.1 million, indicating a 2.9% decline from revenue reported in the prior year quarter .

Other Factors to Consider

Such growth expectations from the majority of its segments make Teledyne optimistic about its overall revenue performance in the first quarter. This likely bolstered the company’s bottom line. However, the impact of inflation and supply chain constraints may have negatively impacted TDY’s soon to be released quarterly results.
