Shares of Sealed Air Rise 9% as Earnings Top Estimates

Tuesday, 19 Feb 2013 05:09 PM

Shares of Sealed Air Corp., the maker of Bubble Wrap, rose the most in more than five months after quarterly earnings and sales beat analysts’ estimates as the company shipped a larger volume of products.

Sealed Air gained 9 percent to $21.15 at the close in New York, the biggest increase since Aug. 29 and the second-largest gain Tuesday on the Standard & Poor’s 500 index.

Fourth-quarter net profit excluding debt redemption costs and other one-time items was 34 cents a share, the Elmwood Park, New Jersey-based company said today in a statement. The average of 11 estimates compiled by Bloomberg was 29 cents. Sales rose 0.8 percent to $1.98 billion, surpassing the $1.94 billion average of nine estimates. Sealed air said its volumes climbed 2.6 percent.

“We are encouraged volumes were positive across all its segments and margins improved,” Philip Ng, an analyst at Jefferies & Co. Inc. in New York who recommends buying the stock, said in a note today.

Bubble Wrap is a transparent plastic film with air pockets sealed between two layers, used to cushion fragile items in shipping.
