Honeywell: “We’re in the early stages of planning for 2011 and we believe we are well positioned for growth given our focus on new products and services, geographic expansion, and the improvement we’re seeing in many of our major end markets. Honeywell now forecasts 2010 sales of approximately USD33 billion and earnings of approximately USD2.52 per share on a reported basis (USD3.26, excluding non-cash pension expense), both now above the high-end of the previous guidance range. The company also forecasts 2010 free cash flow, above the high-end of its prior guidance, of approximately USD3.5 billion, which includes a planned fourth quarter USD600 million cash pension contribution (cash flow from operations of approximately USD4.1 billion),” Dave Cote, Chairman and CEO.
