“We expect a beat for F4Q21 as many of the LTM trends we have seen will continue. However, more than ever, 4Q results are likely not as important as the FY22 guide, which will be the critical test of how much of the pandemic tailwinds mgmt. believes are sustainable (and deserves to be priced in),” noted Simeon Gutman, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley.
“We see EBIT growth through YE of FY21 driven by both margin improvement and vol. driven rev. growth which is helped by limited Airfreight capacity and an eCommerce surge, though yields are mixed. We continue to see secular threats to Parcel and remain skeptical that these trends will be sustainable but believe that until there is evidence of a reversal in earnings momentum, the stock can trade at its historical multiple (14-15x PE) on current EPS.”
