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. 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." (11/8/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Woodward’s strategic plan to become a systems integrator has increased its contract flows, significantly enabling it to capture a larger market share in the wide-body commercial aircraft field. The company’s defense activity continues to be robust as countries around the globe are favoring more expenditure on defense. Woodward’s commercial after-market remains strong buoyed by initial provisioning on new programs, higher utilization and favorable fleet dynamics. The stock has outperformed the industry on an average in the past three months. However, Woodward is witnessing demand-related challenges in the industrial gas and turbine market due to higher penetration and greater energy efficiency of renewables. It faces intense competition from a number of major players in the United States and abroad. Changes in competitive conditions like introduction of new channels of distribution could hamper the company’s revenue stream." (10/5/2018)
