Northrop Grumman awarded $245.05M Navy contract modification

Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $245.05M firm-fixed-price modification to previously awarded contract to exercise options for the joint counter-radio-controlled improvised explosive device electronic warfare, or JCREW, increment 1 block 1, or I1B1, systems full-rate production in support of the Expeditionary Warfare Program Office. CREW systems are designed to provide protection for foot soldiers, vehicles and permanent structures. The JCREW I1B1 system is the first-generation system that develops a common open architecture across all three capabilities and provides protection for worldwide military operations. This integrated design maximizes commonality across all capabilities, reduces life cycle costs and provides increased protection against worldwide threats. Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by January 2021. Foreign military sales funding from the government of Australia in the amount of $2.16M will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Sea Systems Command is the contracting activity.

Goldman removes Northrop Grumman from Conviction List due to near-term concerns
As previously reported, Goldman Sachs analyst Noah Poponak removed Northrop Grumman from the firm's Conviction List as the company is guiding that top-line outgrowth will not happen in 2019 or 2020. " They often beat revenue guidance but we may not see that in the near-term," Poponak stated in his note to investors. However, he still thinks Northrop will post several years of fast organic revenue growth into the middle of next decade given its long list of major program wins and he maintains a Buy rating on the stock.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Mark May saying Snap is down 70% since February 2018 and its current valuation is below Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook's (FB) current and four-year average multiple. 2. Northrop Grumman (NOC) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Robert Spingarn saying the market was not kind to Northrop Grumman in 2018, with the stock trading down about 21% for the year and about 32% off its high in April. 3. Alcoa (AA) and Teck Resources (TECK) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. 4. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Stephen East saying with the equity now trading at an 18.0 times PE multiple and the company growing 2019 EPS an estimated 17%-plus year over year, East believes investors appreciate the potential risks, but might not be appreciating the potential upside. 5. Emerson (EMR) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Andrew Kaplowtiz saying he continues to expect slowing growth before larger project activity begins to contribute.

Northrop Grumman upgraded to Outperform on valuation at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Robert Spingarn upgraded Northrop Grumman to Outperform from Neutral, while lowering his price target on the shares to $302 from $311. The analyst notes that the market was not kind to Northrop Grumman in 2018, with the stock trading down about 21% for the year and about 32% off its high in April. While some of this weakness was endemic to its own circumstances, the analyst thinks it is more broadly a reflection of lofty expectations for future budgets and correspondingly elevated ex-pension valuations seen for both Northrop Grumman and across the defense hardware space this past spring. At this point, however, the selloff has created an attractive opening, he contends.
