Results: Dana Incorporated Exceeded Expectations And The Consensus Has Updated Its Estimates
Oct 30, 2020 2:13AM EDT
Dana Incorporated (NYSE:DAN) just released its quarterly report and things are looking bullish. It was overall a positive result, with revenues beating expectations by 9.8% to hit US$2.0b. Dana also reported a statutory profit of US$0.31, which was an impressive 59% above what the analysts had forecast. Earnings are an important time for investors, as they can track a company's performance, look at what the analysts are forecasting for next year, and see if there's been a change in sentiment towards the company. So we gathered the latest post-earnings forecasts to see what estimates suggest is in store for next year. earnings-and-revenue-growthNYSE:DAN Earnings and Revenue Growth October 30th 2020
Taking into account the latest results, the most recent consensus for Dana from eight analysts is for revenues of US$8.07b in 2021 which, if met, would be a solid 16% increase on its sales over the past 12 months. Statutory earnings per share are predicted to shoot up 1,819% to US$1.86. In the lead-up to this report, the analysts had been modelling revenues of US$7.92b and earnings per share (EPS) of US$1.77 in 2021. So the consensus seems to have become somewhat more optimistic on Dana's earnings potential following these results.
The analysts have been lifting their price targets on the back of the earnings upgrade, with the consensus price target rising 11% to US$19.44. The consensus price target is just an average of individual analyst targets, so - it could be handy to see how wide the range of underlying estimates is. The most optimistic Dana analyst has a price target of US$22.00 per share, while the most pessimistic values it at US$17.00. The narrow spread of estimates could suggest that the business' future is relatively easy to value, or thatthe analysts have a strong view on its prospects.
Taking a look at the bigger picture now, one of the ways we can understand these forecasts is to see how they compare to both past performance and industry growth estimates. The analysts are definitely expecting Dana's growth to accelerate, with the forecast 16% growth ranking favourably alongside historical growth of 7.5% per annum over the past five years. By contrast, our data suggests that other companies (with analyst coverage) in a similar industry are forecast to grow their revenue at 12% per year. It seems obvious that, while the growth outlook is brighter than the recent past, the analysts also expect Dana to grow faster than the wider industry.
The Bottom Line
The most important thing here is that the analysts upgraded their earnings per share estimates, suggesting that there has been a clear increase in optimism towards Dana following these results. Fortunately, they also reconfirmed their revenue numbers, suggesting sales are tracking in line with expectations - and our data suggests that revenues are expected to grow faster than the wider industry. There was also a nice increase in the price target, with the analysts clearly feeling that the intrinsic value of the business is improving. [t][/t]

Dana remains financially strong, and we are well-positioned to capitalize on the strengthening of our businesses through the remainder of this year and into next year."
FY2020 Guidance: Sales: $6.65B to $6.95B; Adjusted EBITDA: $530M to $590M; Adjusted EBITDA margin: ~11.8%; Adjusted EPS: $0.35 to $0.55; Operating cash flow: ~5% of sales; Adjusted free cash flow: ~1% of sales.

What's behind you doesn't matter. - Enzo Ferrari
Every morning, people around the world get in their vehicle, start their engine, and go about their day. There is not much thought put into the parts of the vehicle that keep it running smoothly until the day comes when the vehicle won't work. Dana Incorporation (DAN) is a leading manufacturer of axles, driveshafts, and transmissions. They are rapidly moving into the electrified vehicle market. With a recent acquisition, they are now the only supplier with full electric propulsion design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities. DAN has taken some much-needed steps to secure their future success, and now is the opportunity to get into a growing company.
Dana Inc. recently bought Nordsea Motors Inc., a Canadian company focused on design and integration of electric powertrain system. This purchase completes the missing pieces in Dana's electrification plan. In 2019, Dana has made three acquisitions, all of which were focused on the electric vehicle market. They have a 3-year plan starting in 2020 to synthesize all these new technologies and to have a complete e-Powertrain system in place. They already have a $200 million backlog of sales for their electric systems. Dana has reached into every vehicle market with their electric systems - cars, light trucks, heavy trucks, construction equipment, and agricultural vehicles. This is the future of the vehicle market, and Dana has made the choice to lead the way.
With all these acquisitions and the build-out of their electrification unit, it has cost Dana in the short term. Their profit margin declined from 12.4% in the 2nd quarter to 11.6% in the 3rd quarter, due to the added costs. The acquisitions did help fuel sales growth for the most recent quarter which offset a decline in end-market sales of heavy vehicles. The heavy vehicle market has been the biggest drag on sales. Sales in this area are down 2% compared to 3rd quarter 2018 and earnings fell 1.3%.
Another positive metric for Dana Inc. is the amount of free cash flow they are producing. Now that many of the one-time costs are behind them from the acquisitions and pension adjustments, they should be able to generate a tremendous amount of free cash flow to use to grow their business and return to shareholders. During the second quarter, free cash flow was negative because of a large pension contribution but came roaring back in the 3rd quarter to $123 million and is expected to hit almost $200 million for 2019. In order to stay ahead of the pack in electrification, Dana will need to continue generating free cash flow to fund more acquisitions and develop new technologies.
Given Dana's global presence, they have also faced currency headwinds this year. With the stronger dollar, it has mostly hurt translation of their European sales. Of Dana's Off-Highway Drive sales, 69% are from Europe and over 40% of Power Technologies come from Europe. But as noted in the Lead-Lag Report, "December has seen steady declines in the dollar index indicating that any positive momentum it has been building could be fizzling out." Any weakening of the US dollar will help Dana's bottom line, which I expect to see in 4th quarter results.
Dana pays a solid dividend of $0.10 per share for a 2.29% yield. The dividend has remained steady for the past two years. Dana's 5-year historical cash dividend payout ratio is 34.5%. Dana's current payout ratio of 25.1% is well below their historical rate. If free cash flow continues to grow, I'd expect to see an increase in the dividend in 2020.
If you are looking for a solid company that can innovate to stay at the top of their industry, then look no further than Dana Inc. Any pullback in the general market makes for a good opportunity to add Dana to your portfolio.
