What are analysts saying about General Dynamics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Dynamics stock:

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "good" in the quarter with "increasing velocity" in 2H16/early 2017 and that backlogs remain solid. Analyst Joseph DeNardi commented, "General Dynamics (GD) posted better than expected EPS results of $2.62, above our $2.60 estimate and consensus' $2.54 estimate. Earnings benefited from a lower effective tax rate of 26.2% that added $0.12 to EPS relative to our 29.5% estimate. Revenue results beat our estimate, driven by stronger than expected growth across all four segments, but was still below consensus estimate, which anticipated stronger growth in the Combat System segment than what was realized. Management issued better than expected initial guidance for 2017, driven by continued growth in GD's Combat System and IS&T segments. GD continues to execute very well and will certainly benefit if an improvement in GDP drives a recovery in the business jet market. We balance the upside that would come from such an improvement with the downside should it not, and, in the end, believe more attractive risk-reward profiles exist elsewhere in the industry. As a result, we maintain our Hold rating." (1/30/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Dynamics is one of the only two contractors in the world equipped to build nuclear-powered submarines. Its revenues are derived from a broad portfolio of products and services that help to keep the overall growth momentum steady. The company's share price has outperformed the broader industry price in the last one year backed by the company’s focus on research and development which will continue to drive growth in the quarters ahead. However, the company’s defense business will likely experience top-line pressure in case of any further defense budget cut. Moreover, General Dynamics operates in a highly competitive market, which may hurt its performance going forward." (1/13/2017)
