WTO rulings 'clearly in favor' of Boeing, says Bernstein

Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned commented on the WTO Appellate Body ruling on A350 and A380 launch aid. In a research note to investors, Harned contented that many findings went in Airbus' (EADSY) direction, he views the most important issues as A350 and A380 launch aid and that issues on earlier subsidies are "not considered relevant." The rulings on A350 and A380 launch aid, he said, appear to be "clearly in favor" of Boeing (BA), but added that it is unclear what scale of action is now warranted in response. He expects the AB's action related to EU claims of Boeing subsidies to come later this year. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Airbus and Boeing, with respective targets of EUR129 and $422.

U.S. exiting Iran deal minor negative for Boeing, Airbus, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned notes that President Trump announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord, and will reinstate sanctions on that country. The analyst sees only minimal impact to commercial aerospace as neither Airbus (EADSY) nor Boeing (BA) will change production rates on this change, and the total number of orders affected represents just 2% of the companies' combined order backlogs. For defense contractors with significant Middle Eastern exposure, heightened regional tensions could drive increased demand for missile defense, in particular, but potentially also aircraft, ships, missiles, and vehicles, he contends. Harned believes Raytheon (RTN) is well positioned, having the highest exposure to missile defense and tactical missile sales to the Middle East, with Lockheed Martin (LMT) also a strong player.

Citi sees path to 50% upside in shares of Boeing
Citi analyst Jonathan Raviv sees a path to 50% upside in shares of Boeing (BA), or a stock price above $500. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $415 price target. Airbus (EADSY) hosted its annual meeting on Wednesday, and surrounding media chatter touched on potentially raising A320 rates to greater than 70, although there's nothing official from the company, Raviv tells investors in a research note. Dropping that into Boeing's free cash builder supports a stock above $500 at an attractive 7% free cash flow yield, the analyst writes. He sees this as "one of several paths" to share upside for Boeing. He believes both sides are incentivized to maintain delivery plans and keeps a Buy rating on Boeing shares. Raviv believes the stock remains cheap at current levels.

Boeing, Airbus should reverse Q1 weakness later in the year, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned notes that Q1 should be the weakest of 2018 for both Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY) in light of issues related to engine delivery shortfalls, tariff concerns, order progress and reported deliveries for the quarter. Nonetheless, the analyst sees both Boeing and Airbus as attractive stocks from here and expects that each will reverse Q1 weakness later in the year, with Airbus facing the greater challenge.
