Breakout Stocks Portfolio Manager Bryan Ashenberg, CFA says BE Aerospace's announcement is a result of its strategic review process about the future of the company. Ashenberg says the split will likely take place in the first quarter of 2015. On a conference call Tuesday, B/E Aerospace raised its full year 2014 earnings guidance to $4.35 from $4.30, that's still below the consensus estimate of $4.39 a share in earnings.
