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 reported solid second-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both the bottom line and top line surpassed estimates and increased year over year, largely driven by strength in Aerospace segment. The company raised its fiscal guidance on the back of diligent execution of operational plans and healthy growth dynamics. Moreover, its 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. In Industrial markets, it is witnessing robust improvement in distributed power for data center applications. 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, which might impair its growth potential to some extent." (5/3/2019) 2. Wood & Company analysts commented, "WWD sales of $759M exceeded expectations by about $100M, reflecting 2/3 from WWD’s market positions and 1/3 from the switch to ASC 606 accounting. Organic growth was 22% (17% excluding ASC 606 and (19-20% if omitting 606) and 25% at Aero (16% if omitting 606). Implied FY2H guidance denotes a bit lower revenue run-rates vs. FY2Q compared to recent years’ pattern of seasonal pickup: commentary suggested FY2Q fundamentals accurately reflected market positions, with no particular spike-outs relative to ongoing execution. We believe stronger niche markets in industrial and overall Aero strength could reflect a moderating linearity, but clearly (in our estimation) WWD’s guidance issued from a position of strength."
