What are Wall Street analysts saying about Huntington Ingalls Industries stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Huntington Ingalls Industries stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Huntington Ingalls started off 2018 on a mixed note, with its first-quarter earnings having missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, while revenues surpassed the consensus mark. However, results remained impressive on a year-over-year basis. The company's limited commercial exposure and high dependence on government contracts might dent margins amid uncertain U.S. defense spending trends. Its limited commercial exposure and almost full government dependency may prove fatal in maintaining its margins and bottom line. Moreover, its high debt levels increases its vulnerability to adverse economic or industry conditions. Nevertheless, being the nation's largest military shipbuilder, Huntington Ingalls has stable financials and regularly returns cash to shareholders." (5/8/2018)
