Idacorp Lifts 2019 Profit View

Idacorp Inc. (IDA) raised its 2019 earnings per share guidance to a range of $4.35 - $4.50 from the prior estimation of $4.30 - $4.45 per share. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report earnings of $4.46 per share for 2019. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

The company reported that its net income attributable to the company for the second-quarter declined to $53.2 million or $1.05 per share, from last year's $62.3 million, or $1.23 per share, primarily due to lower net income at Idaho Power.

Sales volumes on a per-customer basis decreased operating income by $13.4 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared with the second quarter of 2018.
