Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin to compete for $4.1B DoD contract

Raytheon (RTN), Lockheed Martin (LMT), and Northrop Grumman (NOC) are each being awarded a multiple award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from U.S. Missile Defense Agency with a minimum amount of $10,000 and a maximum amount of $4.1B. The primary purpose of this contract is to provide autonomous acquisition and persistent precision tracking and discrimination to optimize the defensive capability of the Ballistic Missile Defense system and counter evolving threats. No task orders or delivery orders are being issued at this time. The three awardees of this MAIDIQ contract will compete for each order. This contract was competitively procured via publication on the Federal Business Opportunities website with three proposals received. Type of appropriation is fiscal 2018 through fiscal 2024 research, development, test, and evaluation funds. The ordering period is from July 10, 2018, through July 9, 2023.

Raytheon downgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Robert Spingarn downgraded Raytheon to Neutral from Outperform saying that while it has a number of solid opportunities in front of it, including the new Long Range Stand-off Weapon and hypersonics, the current share price largely reflects this upside. The analyst also lowered his price target on the shares to $219 from $250.

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.

AeroVironment well-positioned to win new Army contract, says Stifel
Separate from AeroVironment's (AVAV) recent Switchblade contract announcement, Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi highlighted that the Army recently posted a request for information for Switchblade production from FY19-FY26. DeNardi said it is unclear what the likelihood is that AeroVironment continues to be the sole-source Switchblade provider as it has been from FY17-FY19, as he assumes multiple contractors will reply and suspects that offerings presumably from companies like Raytheon (RTN), Textron (TXT) and possibly Lockheed (LMT) will be more mature than they were a few years ago. Still, he is encouraged by the length of the performance period for the new RFI and views AeroVironment as well-positioned to win the competition, DeNardi tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating and $65 price target on the stock.

Defense weakness due to correction, not change in narrative, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani noted that Defense stocks are down about 6% and underperforming an already weak market in the last few days, which he finds particularly surprising given the Q1 EPS beats from General Dynamics (GD), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Northrop Grumman (NOC). He attributes the underperformance to three dynamics: outperformance year-to-date prior to the selloff; the catalyst of large budget step-ups having materialized; and fuller valuation, which has being corrected. None of these are fundamental, added Lalwani, saying he is still constructive on Lockheed, Raytheon (RTN) and Northrop.

Northrop Grumman should be bought on any weakness, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Arment said he would be an aggressive buyer of Northrop Grumman (NOC) shares on any market weakness. The analyst updated his model to reflect the Orbital ATK (OA) deal, which is more favorable than he had previously been modeling. He said the strategic deal raises his top-line outlook. Arment reiterated his Outperform rating and $394 price target on Northrop Grumman shares.

Northrop Grumman remains top defense pick at Jefferies
After meeting with management, Jefferies analyst Sheila Kahyaoglu says Northrop Grumman remains her top defense pick. Acquisition planning should allow Northrop to "hit the ground running" with the integration of Orbital ATK, Kahyaoglu tells investors in a research note. She believes the space business presents the biggest synergy opportunity and keeps a Buy rating on Northrop with a $400 price target.
