NewField Exploration (NFX): Business going on, without anything spectacular. Sales try to recover, and earnings are still next to nothing. Investment cash flow maintains high, there might be some surprises next (or not?).
Devon Energy (DVN): Struggling to keep business afloat. Cash declined.
Windstream (WIN): Slowly declining sales, earnings, and cash position. The decline continued in Q3 2013.
OMV Petrom, a subsidiary of OMV Group: strong sales, strong earnings, even stronger cash flows from operating activities.
Agilent (ticker: A): Sales and earnings trending up, cash up, and cash flow increasing.
So far so good.
OMV Group (Austria): Sales creeping up in Q3 2013 for the Austrian oil group, with difficulty in maintaining gross margin and net income. Cash flow from operating activities maintained strong, and long term liabilities declined.
Walmart (WMT): Preparing for shopping season, nothing spectacular reported in Q3 2013, except for the dismal cash flow from operating activities.
Home Depot (HD): Sales and earnings up YoY in Q3, after accounting for seasonality. Long term debt sharply up, on continuing high equity repurchases.
Cisco (CSCO): A quarter of weaker sales and lower earnings.
Decreasing cash flow from operations is not encouraging either.
And to add insult to injury, total debt (long-term plus short-term) increased.
Goodwill in balance sheet also increased a lot; declining sales imply a write-off risk for part of the goodwill on the near future.
