According to Zacks, “In the second quarter of fiscal 2019, Navistar’s earnings and revenues surpassed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. Robust backlogs and improving market share aided the company’s financials. Further, it upgraded its outlook for fiscal 2019 on these positive aspects. For the current fiscal year, Navistar expects revenues to be $11.25- $11.75 billion and adjusted EBITDA is projected to be $875-$925 million. Re-launching of upgraded products beside new product launches is supporting the company’s market share growth. However, declining freight demand and reduction in used truck prices are likely to hurt Navistar. Also, the ongoing changes in on-highway emission standards and high costs are other headwinds.”
