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’s strategic plan 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. The company’s commercial after-market remains strong, buoyed by initial provisioning on new programs, higher utilization and favorable fleet dynamics. The L’Orange buyout is expected to enhance Woodward’s product portfolio and extend its presence in key end markets. The stock has outperformed the industry in 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. High concentration risks and adverse foreign currency translation remain additional headwinds. Stiff competition and intense price wars in the commercial aerospace market remain other concerns for the company." (1/26/2019)
  • 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."
