IHS Markit Ltd. (NYSE:INFO) is scheduled to release fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results on Jan 14, before the bell.

Shares of the company have gained 55.6% over the past year, outperforming the industry’s growth of 43.5%.

Factors at Play

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $1.12 billion, indicating year-over-year growth of 4.9%. The top line is likely to have gained from Resources, Transportation and Financial Services segments.

The consensus estimate for the Resources segment stands at $242 million, indicating year-over-year growth of 8.5%. Strong performance across downstream pricing, Opus and chemical businesses is likely to have driven this growth.

The consensus mark for the Transportation segment stands at $315 million, indicating year-over-year improvement of 6.1%. Strong performance across CARFAX’s used car listing and vehicle history report product offerings, automotive powertrain and compliance product offerings, and increase in automotiveMastermind revenues from additional automotive brands and ongoing product enhancements are expected to have boosted the segment’s growth.

The Financial Services segment revenues are expected to have grown 6.8% year over year on the back of strength in information and solutions product offerings, and strong performance of Ipreo.

In third-quarter fiscal 2019, IHS Markit’s total revenues of $1.11 billion increased 11% on a year-over-year basis.

The consensus mark for earnings per share in the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at 61 cents, indicating year-over-year growth of 7%. Margin expansion from revenue growth, continued integration and business leveraging efforts are likely to have boosted the bottom line.

In third-quarter fiscal 2019, adjusted earnings per share of 67 cents increased 16% year over year.
