Navistar International Shares Surge on Q1 Results (NAV)

Shares of Navistar International Corp. (NYSE: NAV), a manufacturer of International brand commercial and military trucks, are seeing a huge rally in trading today after the company reported its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

For the first quarter, the company reported a loss from continuing operations of $1.42 per share, down from a loss of $1.42 per share reported for the same period in the previous year. Analysts were expecting the company to report a loss of $1.76 per share for the quarter.

Navistar reported adjusted EBITDA for the quarter rose $163 million over the same period in the previous year, driven by $109 million in lower warranty adjustments and $70 million in reduced SG&A expenses.

Manufacturing revenues for the quarter stood at $2.6 billion, down 12% on a year-over-year basis.

Lewis B. Campbell, Chairman and CEO of Navistar International, said that the company is beginning to see concrete progress on each of its near-term priorities—improving its quality, launching its new SCR engine programs on schedule and delivering on its 2013 operating plan—which will put it on a path to profitability.

Campbell further said that in order to move forward on the path to profitability, the company recognizes the need to do even more given current industry volumes and its short-term market share outlook in North America.

At last check, NAV shares were trading 25.74% higher at $31.39 on above average volume of 10.90 million. The stock hit an intra-day high of $32.05 earlier today. NAV shares have gained more than 32% in the last three trading sessions.
