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, "Shares of General Dynamics underperformed its industry in the last one year. Moreover, a comparative analysis of the company’s historical EV/EBITDA ratio reflects a relatively gloomy picture that might be a cause for investors’ concern. The company also operates in a highly competitive market with some competitors having extensive or specialized business segments, superior to General Dynamics. This forces the company to keep upgrading its technology, in case it loses out to competitors developing better products, which in turn, leads to higher expenses. However, apart from solid demand for its varied defense products leading to organic growth, a notable acquisition strategy adds to General Dynamics’ inorganic growth. In this line, the CSRA acquisition bears notable importance. " (10/10/2018)
  • 2. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We project the aerospace division will generate mid-single digit growth and stable margins the next few years." (8/16/2018)
