Defense stock weakness creates buying opportunity, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that the decline in defense stocks following tweets by President-elect Trump criticizing the costs of the Air Force One and F-35 planes was overdone The firm says that interest rates have risen 50 basis points since the election, boosting the companies' ability to pay their pensions, while the defense budgets look poised to increase in the wake of the election results. However, several large cap defense stocks are little changed since before the election, Wells notes.. The firm adds that Lockheed Martin's margins on the F-35 remain strong, while the Trump administration would not be able to impact the program"for some time." It keeps Outperform ratings on Lockheed, General Dynamics (GD), Raytheon (RTN), United Technologies (UTX), and Orbital (OA).
