What Schlumberger's Earnings Mean for Mutual Fund Investors (SLB)

Shauna O'Brien Jan 16, 2015

After the closing bell on Thursday, Schlumberger (SLB) released its fourth quarter financial results. Here’s what the report means for mutual fund investors.

Inside SLB’s Earnings


The company reported earnings of $302 million, or 23 cents per share, compared to $1.66 billion, or $1.26 per share, last year. Excluding special items, earnings were $1.50 per share – above analysts’ view of $1.50 per share.

Revenue came in at $12.64 billion, up from $11.90 billion, last year. Analysts expected to see $12.72 billion in revenue.

Performance Tied to Oil Prices

Excluding its gains from Thursday’s upbeat earnings release, shares of SLB have underperformed in 2015. The stock rose about 4.5% during Friday morning trading due to its earnings release and the announcement that the company will cut 9,000 jobs. SLB also announced that is has boosted its dividend by 25%.

Despite its bounce this morning, shares might have a difficult time rising in the face of lower oil prices and analyst earnings estimates cuts.
