Stifel says United Tech deal strategic, not a sign of M&A 'floodgates opening'
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi said one of the only risks he sees to defense stocks' multiples would be a shift in cash deployment strategy from a focus on dividends and buybacks to M&A. However, he views United Technologies' (UTX) planned acquisition of Rockwell Collins (COL) as strategic and largely focused on its desire to regain leverage against Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY) and not indicative of the M&A "floodgates opening" in the defense sector. Other publicly traded companies in the defense space include BAE Systems (BAESY), General Dynamics (GD), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Raytheon (RTN).
