What are Wall Street analysts saying about General Dynamics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Dynamics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Dynamics company boasts a strong position in the U.S. defense space and overseas. General Dynamics continues to witness strong order growth, procuring some pivotal contracts from the U.S. government and also from its overseas clients. Apart from solid demand for its varied defense products leading to organic growth, a notable acquisition strategy also adds to General Dynamics’ inorganic growth. Notably, General Dynamics acquired CSRA Inc. in April 2018 for $9.7 billion, and will now provide high-tech IT solutions to the government IT market. However, the company operates in a highly competitive market, which forces it to keep upgrading its technology, in case it loses out to competitors developing better products. The company also incurs high interest expenses. General Dynamics' shares also underperformed its industry in the past twelve months." (5/17/2019)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "SMTC reports F4Q (Jan.) earnings Wednesday (3/13). We see sales/EPS close to in line with consensus $160M/$0.54E and a negative bias to Street F1Q (Apr.) of $159M/$0.52E. We are reducing our already below-consensus estimates ahead of the call. These cuts reflect our expectation for market-related weakness in DC, PON and protection (combined ~2/3 of sales) exacerbated by macro uncertainty and ongoing semi cycle correction. LoRa remains core to the SMTC story, and we estimate revenues hit $80M last year, the low end of mgmt’s $80-$100M target. Mgmt has said they expect LoRa sales to double this year. Investors will be watching closely for any LoRa update. We view any DC/PON/protection weakness as market- vs. company- specific and believe investors anticipate near-term weakness. Maintain Outperform." (3/6/2019)
