Ferrari's (RACE) Q3 Earnings Beat Estimate, Up Y/Y

Ferrari N.V. RACE is an Italian luxury sports car manufacturer. The company was a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. for more than a decade before it became an independent entity in Jan 2016.

Ferrari’s strong brand value is its biggest tailwind. The company is also consistently expanding its global presence. While its major revenues are generated from the sales of luxury cars, the company also sells engines and Ferrari brand merchandise.

Ferrari has witnessed consistent revenue growth in the last 10 years primarily due to increased vehicle shipments. Moreover, continuous demand from North America and Europe could have a positive impact in the company’s sales.

However, expenses related to the vehicle recalls and negative shift in product mix in some recent quarters are concerns. As a result, investors have been eagerly awaiting Ferrari’s latest earnings report.

Let’s take a quick look at this Italian automobile giant’s third-quarter release.
