Equifax disappoints with earnings and forecast as it spends on tech and security
Equifax Inc. fourth-quarter earnings dropped 85% from the year before as the company continues to spend to bolster its security and technology after a devastating hack, and the company's forecast for 2019 came in below expectations in an earnings report delivered Wednesday afternoon. Equifax reported net income of $25.6 million, or 21 cents a share, down from $1.42 a share a year ago, on revenue of $835.3 million, down from $839 million a year ago. After stripping out all costs for "the 2017 cybersecurity incident," as Equifax refers to it, as well as a host of other factors, the company claimed earnings of $1.38 a share, down just a penny a share from last year's fourth quarter. Analysts on average expected adjusted earnings of $1.32 a share on revenue of $840 million. Equifax projected 2019 adjusted earnings of $5.60 a share to $5.80 a share, after totaling $5.79 by that metric in 2018, on revenue of $3.43 billion to $3.53 billion, which would be a gain from $3.36 billion in 2018. Analysts on average were projecting 2019 adjusted earnings of $5.86 a share on revenue of $3.53 billion, according to FactSet. "Our incremental investment of over $1.25 billion to transform our technology and security between 2018 and 2020 will position Equifax for future growth and profitability and improve our speed of delivering new products to our customers," Chief Executive Mark Begor said in Wednesday's announcement. Equifax shares fell about 2% in very light trading during the extended session following the report Wednesday afternoon. The stock has declined 6.4% in the past year, as the S&P 500 index has gained 2.3%

Owens & Minor's stock tumbles after dividend slashed to a penny, earnings miss
Shares of Owens & Minor Inc. tumbled 14% in active afternoon trade Wednesday, after the provider of distribution services to makers of healthcare products reported fourth-quarter earnings that missed expectations, provided a downbeat outlook and slashed its dividend to next to nothing. The company said late Tuesday it swung to a net loss of $261.8 million, or $4.37 a share, from a profit of $23.0 million, or 38 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. Excluding non-recurring items, such as $274 million impairment charge, adjusted earnings per share of 9 cents was below the FactSet consensus of 14 cents. Revenue rose 6.4% to $2.54 billion, above the FactSet consensus of $2.50 billion. The company said it amended its credit agreements, that while enhances it financial "flexibility," also increases its interest expense. With that in mind, the company expects 2019 adjusted EPS of 60 cents to 75 cents, below the current FactSet consensus of 93 cents. The company also cut its quarterly dividend to 0.25 cents a share from 7.5 cents a share, which lowers the implied annual dividend yield to 0.15% from 4.39%. Separately, Owens & Minor named Edward Pasicka its chief executive officer, effective March 4. The stock has plunged 56% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 2.5%.
