Other bidders unlikely to challenge Northrop for Orbital ATK, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi thinks the deal to acquire Orbital ATK (OA) makes sense for Northrop Grumman (NOC) given the complimentary nature of their main business lines. He also thinks other bidders seem unlikely, since he believes Lockheed Martin (LMT) would face anti-trust issues. DeNardi has a Hold rating on Northrop shares.

Acquisition of Orbital ATK would 'fit' Northrop Grumman, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein notes that The Wall Street Journal reported that Northrop Grumman (NOC) is close to an all-cash acquisition of Orbital ATK (OA). While the analyst notes that the article did not mention a purchase price, he believes that the Board of Orbital would require at least a 20%-25% premium to the Friday close. Pearlstein sees the strategic fit for Northrop Grumman as it adds consumables and missile defense exposure.

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).
