Shares of Paccar Inc. (PCAR) experienced a mild decline of 1.9% in premarket trading on Tuesday, following last week’s record close. Nevertheless, the heavy-duty truck manufacturer reported impressive earnings and revenue figures that exceeded expectations.

Record-breaking Performance

Paccar Inc. achieved a record net income of $1.22 billion, or $2.33 per share, compared to $720.4 million, or $1.37 per share, during the same period last year. This outstanding performance surpassed the FactSet consensus estimate of $2.18 per share for earnings.

Driven by Efficiency and Reliability

Furthermore, Paccar Inc. highlighted its full factory production schedules for the year, indicating a strong order backlog fueled by customer confidence.
