Woodward, Inc. Message Board

    Following the 2nd Quarter Report

    I have been an owner of WWD for many years. My father actually started purchasing shares of the company back in the late '50s. I have always been impressed with the company's growth originating in the late 1800s.

    But now it is over 130 years later ... and while the stock price is decelerating, I watch the CEO receiving a reported $1.74 million annually ... and showing a $30 million quarterly decline in wind turbine converter sales. They continue to be strong in aerospace, but struggling in the energy sector ... which is an area of uncertainty (large wind products).

    My question is: Is it time to part ways with a company which might be overspending, and venturing in areas that are unbeknownst to what originally made them strong?

    • As far as "experimenting" In the wind energy market, I agree. There has never been any "solid data" showing that wind energy along with a few new "energy solution" products Is the way of the future, for Woodward Governor. Especially since the Industrial and Aircraft units have been the core business for most of the companies existance. Stop "experimenting", and just Improve upon what made Woodward what was before the experimenting started.
