HXL has just seen the last of the selling. Looks like a potential push higher is in store. I started receiving notifications from awe_some_stock_s the other week and so far they have presented interesting new trade ideas.
HXL is looking to expand in France through an acquisition. Doesn't HXL already manufacture products like prepreg? It seems this deal is aimed at geographic expansion to serve the EU aerospace markets.
@@@STAMFORD, Conn., June 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexcel Corporation (HXL) announced today that it has entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire all of the shares of Structil SA (Structil), a French producer and supplier of high-performance composites to the aerospace, defense and industrial markets. The proposed transaction is subject to review by relevant employee representative bodies and approval from the applicable French authorities. Assuming those reviews and approvals are successfully completed, the acquisition is expected to close in 2017. Structil is a joint venture between Safran Ceramics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Safran, and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (formerly Mitsubishi Rayon Corporation). The company employs approximately 70 people at a 68,000-square-foot production plant on a seven-acre site in Vert-le-Petit, France, about 25 miles south of Paris. Structil`s 2016 sales were approximately $21 million. The company`s product lines include prepregs, structural adhesives and pultruded profiles used in engine nacelles, aerospace interiors, military jets and more.

Supercars huh. Boy it'd be nice if they can get the costs down to use carbon materials in just regular sportscars. A hookup with TSLA would be nice right about now.

HXL needs a big fat institutional investor to jump on board. I sure hope Buffet doesn't pull a PCP move on us after all these years waiting. If he does though, I expect a bidding war to break out. Perhaps that's the best shareholders can hope for here to finally break out of this multi-year rut even as the markets soar to new alltime highs?
If HXL moved any slower it would be a statue. Unreal. Every time it looks set to break out it stalls.
The last time HXL did something like this it blew up. Things look enticing now that profit margin has hit 12.50%. Do you guys find it difficult to know when to buy or sell something? I prefer to get my stocks from awe-someSTOCKS.
This is a great industry to buy in 2017. Imagine what carbon fiber and 3D printing will be in 2027. Buy and hold.
Really? Why is it that the reaction to good earnings is muted, but hey, announce a buyback and all of a sudden the stock moves up. No matter that in 2016 HXL only spent $130M and still has $90M left over before the approval yesterday of another sum of $300M.
@@@STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexcel Corporation (HXL), today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional $300 million of the Company’s stock. Under the program, the Company may purchase its common stock from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The repurchases will be funded from cash from operating activities and, if needed, existing borrowings. The amount and timing of the purchases will depend on a number of factors including the price and availability of shares of common stock, trading volume and general market conditions. As of December 31, 2016, there was $93 million remaining under the authorized share repurchase program.
Hmmm, so after this 2nd round of investment, HXL has a 16% stake in 3D printing firm Oxford. And BA is keen on getting parts built there.
@@@Boeing Co has hired a small company to make about 600 3D-printed parts for its Starliner space taxis, meaning key components in the United States manned space program are being built with additive manufacturing. The company, privately held Oxford Performance Materials, will announce a $10 million strategic investment from advanced materials company Hexcel Corp as early as Friday, adding to $15 million Hexcel invested in May and lifting Hexcel's equity stake to 16.1 percent, Oxford and Hexcel said.

And an upgrade today. About freakin time.
@@@BofAMerrill Lynchh upgraded Hexcel Corp. (NYSE: HXL) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $65.00 (from $55.00).
No pullback on earnings news this time around. Is the steady success of HXL business finally starting to sink in with institutional investors?
Looks like a breakout is in the works. HXL just surpassed the previous all time high of 54.72 reached back in August 2015. Long overdue IMO.
Hexcel (NYSE:HXL): Undervalued dividend payer but questionable financial position and growth potential. Simply Wall St is a free app which gives investors access to institutional quality data and analysis presented in beautiful visual reports.
3D printing. This collaboration makes good sense. I wonder why they didn't just buy out OPM though.
@ Hexcel Corporation (HXL) announced today that it has made a strategic investment in Oxford Performance Materials (OPM). OPM produces thermoplastic, carbon fiber reinforced 3D printed parts for Commercial Aerospace and Space and Defense applications. The investment creates a partnership between Hexcel – a global leader in advanced composites and carbon fiber – and OPM – a recognized leader in high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM™) – to further advance the commercial application of this growing manufacturing technology to serve the aerospace market.
Hexcel as takeover bait?. HXL looks as though it could be a good candidate for a takeover for the likes of a GE or a HON, if the price is right. HXL has low insider ownership and GE already owns more than 3.25 million shares. Institutional owners would love a buyout. Any thoughts?
Vestas has record Q1 order intake, shares rise 4 pct. COPENHAGEN, April 29
The world's largest wind turbine maker Vestas received record orders and posted forecast-beating operating profit in the first quarter, lifting the Danish company's share price by as much as 4 percent on Friday.
Vestas, the world's largest wind turbine maker, is benefitting from a new focus on renewable energy generation, encouraged by the Paris global climate summit last year.
The order intake for the quarter was 2,403 megawatts (MW), up from 1,750 MW the year before, with large orders from countries including the United States, China and Norway.
Operating profit before special items was 85 million euros ($96.8 million), up from 79 million euros a year ago. Analysts polled by Reuters had on average expected 60.8 million euros.
"These are strong results, also looking at the order intake, which turned out better than what I and the market had expected. That supports the visibility going into 2017," Jyske Bank senior analyst Janne Vincent Kjaer said.
Vestas' shares rose 4 percent to 465 crowns, making it the third-biggest gainer on the Stoxx 600 index.
While Vestas is the market leader, it would be pushed off that pedestal if rivals Siemens and Gamesa go through with a planned merger.
Vestas also said it broke its own record with combined order backlog and service agreements between January and March of 18 billion euros ($20.50 billion), 3 billion more than a year earlier.
The wind turbine backlog order was 8.6 billion euros and service agreements with contractual future revenue was 9.4 billion at the end of March 2016.
