Major aircraft makers, suppliers face off, Barron's says

While United Technologies (UTX) proposed $30B acquisition of Rockwell Collins (COL) is not a done deal, its aggressive expansion strategy illustrates trends unfolding in the industry, namely a shift in traditional turf boundaries, Lawrence Strauss writes in this week's edition of Barron's. This is just the latest in a spate of recent M&A deals that illustrate a battle between major commercial aircraft manufacturers, namely Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY), and some of their suppliers, he argues, pointing out that there is "lots of maneuvering" to see who will dominate the lucrative business of being an aerospace hardware and service provider.Reference Link

Rockwell Collins downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned downgraded Rockwell Collins (COL) to Market Perform from Outperform following its board approval of United Technologies' (UTX) planned acquisition at a nominal price of $140/share. The analyst says the stock has moved above $130 related to the deal, and he is concerned that Rockwell Collins' acceptance of a $140 deal price indicates that internal forecasts are more pessimistic than his. He kept a $137 price target on Rockwell Collin's shares, but lowered hist target for United Technologies to $126 from $135, while reiterating a Market-Perform rating.

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).

Boeing production increase positive for suppliers, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Michael Ciarmoli says that Boeing's (BA) decision to increase its production to 14 planes per month in 2019, up from 12 currently, was "surprising" to many investors, including him, who expected the company to maintain or cut its current production level. He thinks that the decision increases the chances that the 2018 and 2019 estimates for airplane suppliers will rise. The analyst says that the following companies can benefit from Boeing's production increase: Astronics (ATRO), Barnes Group (B),Rockwell Collins (COL), KLX Inc. (KLXI), Spirit AeroSystems (SPR),Triumph Group (TGI), Wesco Aircraft (WAIR),and Woodward (WWD),

Boeing price target raised to $300 from $275 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Howard Rubel raised his price target for Boeing shares to $300 following the company's recent investor day. The analyst boosted his 2019 earnings per share estimate to $12.10 from $12.00 and 2020 estimate to $13.25 from $12.85. Mid-single digit air traffic growth and a "well-considered" plan to increase the 787 line to 14 per month in 2019 should drive Commercial Aircraft deliveries from 748 in 2016 to about 915 by 2020, Rubel tells investors in a research note titled "Building One Boeing from Three Units and Four Million Parts." He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
