    In Defense of Defense: Why the Sector Can Keep Climbing

    Last week saw a number of small defense stocks get hit, with names like Engility (EGL), KEYW (KEYW), and Aerojet Rocketdyne (AJRD) down double digits. Canaccord's Ken Herbert and Jamaine Aggrey don't think so. Herbert and Aggrey understand that investors may be getting defense "fatigue" as the stocks have been up for a year now, rallying the wake of the 2016 election, and they admit that valuations are certainly rich: After all, small-cap defense stocks are still up 46% since the election, and 26% in 2017 while the S&P 500 is up "just" 16%.

    The Best Way To Value Aerospace And Defense

    Cash flows are becoming increasingly important to aerospace and defense investors compared to earnings, writes Vertical Research Partners’ Rob Stallard in his latest note. Stallard writes that part of the problem is the increase—he uses the phrase “unchecked rise”—of companies using their own definitions of earnings rather than GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) earnings. Stallard writes that he prefers to stick to traditional P/Es where they make sense, and he thinks this is the case for most defense stocks (even though they are trading near cycle highs, given the strong outlook for defense spending).

    Boeing 787 Production Increase Is Good News For Aerospace, But…

    Boeing (BA) stock climbed yesterday on news that it would increase its production of 787 aircraft. SunTrust Robinson Humphrey's Michael Ciarmoli and Les Sulewski write that given there recent slump in wide-body planes, they, and many others, expected the company would more likely maintain or cut their production. While we continue to struggle with current valuations (NTM PE multiple at 19.2x representing a multi-year high) and believe Boeing's decision to plow forward with higher rates may ultimately saturate the market, we believe this news may breathe more life into the aero exposed OE names.

    Airlines Capacity Growth Leaves No Room For Error

    Canaccord's Ken Herbert and  Jamaine Aggrey check in with the airline industry today, writing that the current outlook for overall capacity growth of about 6% "leaves no margin for error" for the aerospace industry. Passenger traffic continues to track above its historical 5% average growth, but they warn that lower fuel prices make older planes more attractive for current and future capacity requirements, which could put pressure on the delivery of new planes. Of course, demand for air travel remains high, with global passenger traffic ahead of expectations this year, up 7.7%, but there's reason to worry about the supply-demand balance in commercial aerospace.

    Are 2018 Estimates Too High For Defense Stocks?

    Wells Fargo’s Sam Pearlstein and his team take a look at the aerospace and defense sector ahead of the third quarter earnings season: As companies often provide a first-pass at the year ahead of third-quarter conference calls, they write that it’s a good time to review consensus expectations. Pearlstein writes that he thinks consensus revenue growth for 2018 could be on the high side for Northrup Grumman (NOC) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), and margin expectations for Raytheon (RTN) could also be too “aggressive.” That said, he writes that these stocks don’t tend to move on revenues, as most investors focus on EPS and cash flow expectations, and he’s not changing his estimates. Overall, he sees positive trends supporting the defense sector, as budgets increase and there’s no shortage of geopolitical threats.
