What are Wall Street analysts saying about Woodward, Inc.Common Stock stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Woodward, Inc.Common Stock stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Woodward is bullish on its performance and outlook on the back of enhanced operational execution and delivery of superior shareholder value. Moreover, the company’s strategy to become a systems integrator has increased contract flow substantially, enabling it to capture a larger market share in the wide-body commercial aircraft field. Woodward’s Aerospace segment is expected to deliver strong performance driven by healthy global passenger and cargo growth. In Industrial markets, it is witnessing robust improvement in distributed power for data center applications. Woodward L’Orange is likely to continue to boost Industrial segment with respect to both sales and earnings. The stock has also outperformed the industry over the past year on average. However, Woodward is witnessing demand-related challenges in the industrial gas and turbine market due to higher penetration and greater energy efficiency of renewables." (3/20/2019) 2. Wood & Company analysts commented, "WWD reported a solid FY4Q18, and in our view, a better FY19 guide (given balance), with Industrial segment returning to organic growth of ~6% forecast, as no markets project as dragging on favorable markets, and notably following three years of organic declines (variously mixed earlier in that period; lately punctuated by diminished Industrial Gas Turbine sector, mainly heavy duty, as well as WWD’s renewables mix exposure). Aerospace results and outlook remain a picture of healthy expansion. As Industrial markets collectively turn, key watch items include prospects for core OM expansion and leverage, and organic opportunity from end customer product mix to favor WWD’s content wins."
