Technology company Honeywell international Inc. (HON) reported Friday a profit for the second quarter that declined from last year, significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and oil price volatility.

For the second quarter, net income attributable to Honeywell declined to $1.08 billion or $1.53 per share from $1.54 billion or $2.10 per share in the prior-year quarter.

Excluding items, adjusted net income for the quarter was $1.26 per share, compared to last year's $2.10 per share.

On average, 21 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report earnings of $1.21 per share for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.
