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 boasts a strong position in the U.S. defense space and overseas, and continues to witness strong order growth, securing some pivotal contracts from the U.S. government and its overseas clients. Deliveries of G600 can be expected from the third quarter. In the past six months, shares of General Dynamics outperformed the industry. Product innovations can be expected to enhance this shipbuilder’s footprint in the business jet market. However, rising interest expenses can be a potential headwind for the company’s bottom-line growth going ahead. Moreover, delayed payments related to one of its large international vehicle programs in Canada are hurting its cash flow reserve. A comparative analysis of its historical EV/EBITDA ratio reflects a gloomy picture." (9/2/2019)
  • 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)
