    What Investors Should Anticipate from Flowserve (FLS) in Q4 Earnings

Flowserve Corporation will announce its fourth-quarter 2023 results after the market closes on Feb 20, 2024.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the company’s fourth-quarter earnings has remained stable in the past 60 days. Flowserve has an impressive track record of surpassing the consensus estimate, with an average beat of 27.3% over the last four quarters.

Factors to Note

Flowserve’s Pump Division segment’s fourth-quarter 2023 performance is expected to have gained from higher aftermarket and original equipment customer sales. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the segment’s gross sales is pegged at $800 million, indicating an 8.3% rise from the fourth-quarter 2022 reported number.

Robust aftermarket and customer original equipment sales are likely to support the results of the Flow Control Division segment in the fourth quarter. The consensus estimate for gross sales of the segment is pegged at $335 million, indicating a 10.9% increase from the year-ago quarter’s reported number.

Record levels of booking due to strong maintenance, repair, and operations, and aftermarket activity have been driving Flowserve’s growth. The consensus estimate for the company’s fourth-quarter 2023 revenues is pegged at $1.1 billion, suggesting an increase of 9.3% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.

However, the rising cost of sales due to raw material inflation is likely to have partially dented FLS’ bottom line in the to-be-reported quarter. The consensus estimate for the company’s adjusted earnings is pegged at 61 cents per share, indicating a 3.2% decline from the year-ago quarter’s reported number.

The company’s international presence exposes it to the risk of adverse currency fluctuations, which is expected to have hurt its performance in the to-be-reported quarter.
