Woodward 'exceptionally well-positioned' for growth, says William Blair

Woodward remains "exceptionally well-positioned" for several years of above-average growth, William Blair analyst Nicholas Heymann tells investors in a research note post the company's investor meeting. While Woodward made no changes to its recent preliminary fiscal 2020 guidance, it noted the potential for better than expected performance depending on how fast liquefied natural gas truck engines expand in China, Heymann says. He believes few investors are giving Woodward credit for its potential to achieve 16% industrial operating margin in fiscal 2021. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Sherwin-Williams (SHW) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Edward Jones. 5.

Woodward upgraded to Buy on potential for Aerospace upside at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Sheila Kahyaoglu upgraded Woodward to Buy from Hold with a price target of $135, up from $108, citing her view that management is being conservative with its operating margin targets for the Aerospace business, which accounts for 75% of earnings and could surprise to the upside. Additionally, her forecast, along with consensus, only bake in 5% organic top-line expansion for Woodward over 2019-23, which present an opportunity, Kahyaoglu tells investors. She also notes the scarcity value of Woodward given that there are few commercial aerospace assets available for interested buyers. Kahyaoglu raised her FY20 EPS estimate for Woodward to $5.60, which she noted was at the high-end of guidance of $5.30-$5.60 and above consensus at $5.47.
