Previewing a positive JBL Storyline

INVESTMENT HIGHLIGHTS: Ahead of JBL’s upcoming earnings report on 6/14, we remain Buyers of the name and expect the quarter’s results and guidance to be at least in line with some opportunities for beats (more so with EPS). Further, we expect solid momentum at JBL to continue not just for the near quarters but also in support of corporate goals to achieve $3.00 in EPS by F19, owing largely to Nypro, EMS portfolio improvements and the iPhone super cycle (among other contributors). Consequently, we reiterate our Buy.

·         Preview of upcoming earnings vs. expectations. On 6/14 after the close, JBL will report its F3Q (May) results after setting guidance for $4.25-4.55B in revs (+2% y/y at midpoint) and $0.19-0.39 non-GAAP EPS. Current consensus calls for $4.40B and $0.29 (midpoints of guide) for May while consensus for August calls for $4.79B and $0.61. Our May estimates match consensus while August is $4.85B and $0.62 (both slightly higher).

·         We’re biased toward suspecting EPS performance and guidance could be above Street. We believe JBL is executing across its improving-quality EMS portfolio as well as driving multi-pronged growth within DMS (through Nypro and in the APPL business with the iPhone 8 cycle continuing positive momentum from the iPhone 7). We expect this positive momentum to continue, and we consequently suspect guidance should at least be supportive of consensus estimates while EPS opportunities for August (and November) could be above the Street due to mix and efficiencies.

·         Remember: $3.00 earnings target for F19; stock should keep working. With just 1 quarter left in F17, F19 is right around the corner, and we believe JBL should remain steadfast in its expectations to deliver ~20% EPS CAGR through this period. In our view, investors should be impressed by the level of EPS growth from a company of JBL’s size given this should primarily be driven by mix and execution (much less so in terms of buybacks or cost-outs). Further, we believe the stock should continue to work, and we think further multiple expansion (from current 13x toward 15x) can be supported. Over the past 2-3 years, most EMS names have experienced solid multiple recovery that’s partly been a broader function of investor momentum in the space but has also been a fundamental acknowledgment of a space that has become much healthier (more consistent execution, profitability focused, more diversified, stickier/more specialized). Today, these factors are still improving while sustainably strong FCF generation (JBL around 9%) also continues to be quite strong.
