How Honeywell earnings are vital to the stock’s future
Analysts have had mixed views about Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE:HON) earnings in recent months, cutting a penny per share from their June-quarter estimates but adding that penny to their full-year 2013 expectations. The stock, though, has been unequivocally positive, rising 11% since mid-April.

Honeywell got the quarter started with strong results in its April earnings report, managing to boost its earnings by 17% despite sporting only the tiniest of revenue gains. More optimistically, the company increased its earnings guidance for the year, hiking the lower end of its previous range by a nickel per share, although it cut its sales expectations by $200 million, or about half a percent.

Yet the company continues to face macroeconomic uncertainties. Rival Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE:JCI) reported extreme weakness in Europe in the first quarter, as automakers there have seen poor vehicle sales and generally weak industrial activity contribute to sluggish earnings growth. Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE:HON) has done its best to restructure its operations to turn its attention to higher-growth markets, but Europe could continue to hold back Honeywell from its full potential.
