    Aerospace & Defense: Yes, There Are More Gains to Come

    It's been a banner year for aerospace and defense stocks, with the SPDR S&P Aerospace & Defense ETF (XAR) up more than 28% year to date, getting a boost from geopolitical tensions and potential tax reform.  After such a major run, however, investors are worried if the gains can keep coming. The answer is yes, for some stocks, writes Goldman Sachs' Noah Poponak and his team. Poponak writes that he's still bullish on defense stocks heading into the new year, while he's more selective in the aerospace.

    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).
