Home 2021 Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Beat FY 2020 Analysts Forecasts



Tuesday,  Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) released its FY 2020 result to the market. The the 1s responders was not positive, shares sold down to 194.24 intraday, or 3.5% to 200 on Tuesday. Citi even turned Bearish!

Overall the result was good, even though the factory was shuttered for 7 wks during the virus chaos. Statutory earnings beat analysts expectations by a 15%, coming in at 3.28/share, and company guidance is for Y 2020 is 4.11/share.

Below are the Street’s latest post-earnings estimates for this year, as follows:

he 1T6 analysts covering Ferrari now predicting revenues of $5.06-B in Y 2021. This reflect a 53% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Per-share earnings are expected to jump 71% to 4.73.

In the lead-up to this number, the analysts had been modelling revenues of $4.19-B and EPS of 3.91 in Y 2021. The analysts have increased both earnings and revenue estimates.

And although the analysts have upgraded their earnings estimates, there was no change to the consensus price target of 243.60. Looking at that 1 yr price target may suggest a diverse view on possible outcomes for the business.

The most optimistic Ferrari analysts price target are 365 and 375 from UBS and LTN respectively, and the most pessimistic values Ferrari at 142.18. This is a broad spread of estimates, suggesting that analysts are forecasting a wide range of potential outcomes for the business.

We are expecting Ferrari’s growth to accelerate, with the forecast 53% growth ranking favorably alongside historical growth of 4.4% per yr over the past 5 yrs.

By contrast, our data suggests that other companies in the sector are forecast to grow their revenue at 23% per yr. So, while the growth outlook is brighter than in the past, we along with UBS expect Ferrari to grow faster than the sector overall. We see Ferrari’s market mostly untapped, and with the coming Armani luxury product line the growth would be much more significant.

The most important thing we see in here is that the analysts have upgraded their EPS estimates and that pessimism towards Ferrari following the the FY 2020 results has reversed to optimism. And that the business is expected to grow faster than the broader industry. And that the intrinsic value of the business has not undergone any major changes with the latest estimates.
