    • Don't know the entire story. I have been told that NWA's engines for their 15 BA 787's will be Rolls Royce.

    • The largest use of the metal is in the compressor blades, discs, rotors, and other parts of aircraft turbine engines. Then comes airframe structures like landing gear, ducting, hydraulic lines, wing carry through, nacelles, etc.

    • Ray: Some good thoughts here- I obviously don't know but imagine that on renewing LTA's that expired in 05, TIE because of the market demand and the rising prices on TI would have stronger pricing power in negotiations without harming long term relations with customers. Hope the TIE negotiators are also good "poker players"

      Another question for which I haven't found the answer.I've read that TIE has LTAs with engine makers particularly Rolls Royce.Does any one know how there aerospace business is divided [approx %] between BA and engine makers?

    • Frances,

      See the numerous posts on this subject (greater disclosures by TIE). It�s a specious argument at the very aggregated levels we investors would find helpful.

    • I would guess the agreements were loaded with non-disclosure clauses.

    • All these good news, unfortunately, will not move Tie stock forward, if Tie management does not come out periodically and state what is the effect of these airplane orders deluge to Tie and its bottom line. There are many ways for the company to do this directly or subtlely, i.e. news on new contracts, renegotiated LTA's, increased capacity including effect of new alliances (in China)to meet demand, etc.
      Positive news will attract more investors, increase volume being traded, decrease volatility, lessen stock price manipulation, increase the worth of the stock, make posters like us happy, reduce overanalysis,etc. Heck, if Goog (part of my portfolio) who is not shy about broadcasting good news can manage to eke out an increase in its stock price almost everyday, why can't Tie. Tie has done much better over the past year vs. Goog in terms of stock price growth, has a lower P.E., etc. yet it is being treated by stock price manipulators, dumb analysts and mad TV gurus like a piece of s... which it does not deserve. I know nobody in Tie's management reads our posts, but blowing steam if you will pardon me, is good for my health.

      • fibagger,

        All of your points are well taken.

        I must take exception, however, with your assertation that Timet management does not read these message boards. My group has gotten confirmation from several sources that upper Timet management does indeed read this message board.

        I can not tell you with what frequency they check the boards, especially since the volume of posts has increased so dramatically over the last 3-6 months, but they do check them.

        This is another reason to keep your posts on-topic, concise, and free of vulgarities.
