Raytheon raises full-year adjusted profit forecast as air travel recovers

This post was originally published on this site

As demand for air travel returned quicker than expected, airlines rushed to return planes to skies and recall crews, thus boosting demand for Raytheon (NYSE:RTN)’s aviation technologies and services.

However, the recovery could be thwarted by the highly transmissible COVID-19 Delta variant that has led to a rise in cases in several countries, with the United States planning to keep existing travel restrictions despite months of lobbying by airlines.

The company now expects full-year earnings of $3.85 and $4.00 per share, above its previous forecast of $3.50 and $3.70.

Net income attributable to common shareowners was $1.03 billion, or $69 cents per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, from a loss of $3.84 billion, or $2.55 per share, a year earlier.

Net revenue rose to $15.88 billion from $14.06 billion.
