Heating and cooling company Lennox International (LII +1.3%-) ticks up today after its Q1 results beat on both EPS and revenue. Net earnings swung to a profit as its bottom line was buoyed by a strong performance from its residential heating and cooling segment - by far its largest by revenue - amid higher volume and lower material costs. Sales for the segment rose 15% Y/Y, while operating profit jumped 86%. The company also upped the low end of its FY13 EPS view by $0.10, now expecting to earn $3.25 to $3.55, and tweaked the low end of revenue guidance, now looking for 3% to 6% growth.
