What: Shares of A. Schulman (Nasdaq: SHLM ) dropped 15% today after the company released earnings.
So what: Sales fell 2.4% in the fiscal second quarter to $495.9 million and volumes fell 7.8%. Earnings were $9.1 million, or $0.31 per share, $0.08 higher than a year ago, but analysts had expected $0.44 per share.
Now what: Management blamed weakness in Europe for most of the earnings miss. Still, conditions did improve over last year on both the top and bottom lines in a traditionally weak quarter. Shares trade at just 9.4 times forward earnings estimates, so this could be a company worth watching if conditions stabilize in Europe.
