Just what the investor ordered. Here’s a recap of the companies that reported on Wednesday…
The post The ASX reporting wrap-up: BHP Group, Domino’s, CSL appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
If yesterday wasn’t busy enough for reporting on the ASX, today turned the dial up a notch. Results from some of the biggest companies on the ASX were met with mixed reactions.
We’ll quickly unpack today’s results and then wrap it back up for tomorrow:
Those that delivered today
BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP)
Shares in BHP sank a substantial 7.1% after the company revealed its FY21 full-year results. Despite earnings that were on par with expectations and a better dividend to boot, the mining giant had its worst session since May 2020. Investors might not have looked too fondly on the confirmed merger with Woodside.
The takeaway points:
Underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) up 69% to US$37,379 million
Underlying attributable profit increased 88% to US$17,077 million
Net operating cash flow up 73% to US$27,234 million
Underlying earnings per share of 337.7 US cents
Record fully franked final dividend of 200 US cents per share, bringing full year dividend to 301 US cents, up 151% year on year.
BHP and Woodside Petroleum Limited (ASX: WPL) strike merger deal
Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (ASX: DMP)
The Domino’s share price, on the other hand, had a cracking day after reporting its FY21 results on the ASX. A record number of new stores helped achieve a massive 29% increase in earnings for the company. It seems home-delivered pizzas were the food of choice throughout lockdowns.
The takeaway points:
Network sales increased 14.6% year-on-year (YoY) to $3.74 billion;
Online sales grew 21.5% YoY, contributing $2.93 billion;
Underlying earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) jumped 27.2% YoY to $293 million;
Net profit after tax (NPAT) surged 29.2% YoY to $188.2 million;
CSL Limited (ASX: CSL)
While CSL delivered a solid FY21 result by all accounts, the warning of a hit to profits during a ‘transitional’ phase in FY22 appears to have rattled investors on Wednesday. The biotech giant’s shares shaved off 1.47% to $293.56 by the end of the session.
The takeaway points:
Total revenue increased 9.6% in constant currency to US$10,026 million
Gross profit up 9% to US$5,675 million
Net profit after tax up 10% to US$2,307 million (compared to guidance of 3% to 8% growth)
Full year dividend of US$2.22 per share, up 10% year on year
FY 2022 guidance: Net profit to decline 2.5% to 6.8% in constant currency or 5% to 9% on reported profits.
