Stocks moving in after hours: Whirlpool, NXP Semiconductors
Yahoo Finance Live anchor Seana Smith breaks down several trending stocks in the after-hours trading session.
SEANA SMITH: Time for some of our after-hours trending tickers. Let's take a look at two names. We have Whirlpool and NXP. It's all about earnings this week. Kicking it off with whirlpool, we're looking at gains here in extended trading, up just about 2%. Some nuggets here from this earnings report, guidance meeting the Street's expectations. They see revenue of 19.4 billion for the year, EPS outlook in line with the Street's estimates as well.
A reason why we're seeing the stock pop here in extended trading, I think a lot of that has to do with one line here in this report that the company does expect $800 to $900 million benefit this year in part due to some easing raw material inflation costs here. That, of course, is expected to benefit the company going forward. Intraday basis ahead of these results, the stock closed the trading day lower here over the last three months. We're looking at gains of nearly 10% ahead of this earnings report. The company announced that its president and COO would be leaving the company.
All right, let's take a look at NXP Semiconductors, again, a mover here in extended trading. We're looking at losses of nearly 4%. Now the company here, revenue forecasts missing the Street's expectations. That's a huge driver in this extended hours trading activity. Right now, Q4 EPS did beat the Street's expectation, revenue coming in just in line, up about 9% on a year over year basis. But that weak guidance, that is what's dragging the stock lower after-hours. Over the last three months, we're looking at gains of just about 18%. Over the last six months, a bit of a longer term chart there, the stock has essentially been flat off just about 2%. Dave.
DAVE BRIGGS: OK, Seana, thank you.
