What are analysts saying about AerCap Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AerCap Holdings stock:

  • 1. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We view AerCap’s fleet growth as positive, especially for the company’s multiple, while we also acknowledge the potential for slightly softening lease rates which is probably the largest risk to our estimates, rating and target price. Order book will provide significant growth: We believe that AER’s order book could help investors view AER’s shares as more GARP-like than value- like which could cause an upward rerating. AER’s fleet grew year over year by 1% in ’15, -2% in ’16 (as management sold planes and repurchased shares aggressively) and we forecast +8% in ’17 and +12% in ’18. Lease rates and concern over lease rates still represent risk: We believe that the lessors would trade at higher multiples if investors had more confidence that accelerating narrowbody production rates would not pressure lease rates. Lessor multiples have been impacted by macro factors such as widebody weakness, concerns over China, rising interest rates, and production rates which can impact lease rates and values." (5/24/2017)
