ServiceMaster reports Q1 adjusted EPS 33c, consensus 31c

Reports Q1 revenue $482M, consensus $473.14M. CEO Nik Varty said, "In our pest control core, organic growth of 3% in the quarter included 4 percent growth in residential pest and 2 percent in termite and home services, despite the impact of unseasonably cold weather and flooding on our operations and lead flow. We see positive trends in commercial pest with customer retention reaching three-year highs, driven by continued improvement in customer service as we leverage the best practices of Copesan and enhance the customer experience we deliver. ServiceMaster Brands grew revenue organically 5% in the first quarter. Our focus on high-growth market verticals is paying dividends with healthcare cleaning and disinfection up 7% and commercial restoration up 35% in the quarter. Strategic M&A also continues to be a growth driver, with 11 pest control acquisitions in the quarter."

Buy
Frontdoor initiated with a Buy at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst James Clement initiated Frontdoor (FTDR) with a Buy rating and $29 price target. He believes the stock's "very poor" trading since its spinoff from ServiceMaster (SERV) on October 1 provides a buying opportunity, stating that Frontdoor is in the process of raising prices and he thinks it has plenty of room to do so. Clement believes the most attractive long-term aspect of the story is the potential for Frontdoor to be a disruptor in home improvement, maintenance and repairs, but acknowledges the company will have to invest significantly to make this a reality.

Equal Weight
ServiceMaster guidance likely to surprise to the downside, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Toni Kaplan said she expects ServiceMaster (SERV) management to guide to adjusted EBITDA that is materially below current consensus estimates when the company reports Q4 earnings later this month. She believes consensus has not built in higher costs from dis-synergies and a $9M investment related to its new partnership with Salesforce.com (CRM). She also expects investors to focus on Terminix organic sales growth guidance, which she predicts will be guided at roughly 2%. In a case where the company issues below-consensus FY19 adjusted EBITDA guidance with 2% or less organic revenue growth for Terminix, which she views as the most likely scenario, Kaplan sees the stock declining 7%. If the EBITDA guidance misses but Terminix organic revenue growth is guided to be 2.5% or better at the midpoint, Kaplan expects the stock to be flat. In a scenario where FY19 EBITDA guidance is in-line and Terminix organic growth guidance is 2.5% or better, Kaplan sees the stock increasing 5%. She keeps an Equal Weight rating on ServiceMaster with a $36 price target.

Outperform
ServiceMaster price target raised to $55 from $47 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Ian Zaffino raised his price target for ServiceMaster to $55 from $47 as management continues to target best-in-class retention by 2021. The analyst believes incremental margins should be 30%-plus by Q4 of 2019, and even higher thereafter, as retention improvements eliminate the need for elevated marketing spend. ServiceMaster Brands could be a large source of upside, as it enters commercial adjacencies and/or leverages Terminix, he contends. Zaffino reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
