  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hexcel Corp. ended first-quarter 2019 on an impressive note, with both earnings and revenues surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, broader markets for composites are highly competitive, which leads to intense competition within the marketplace from both existing and new competitors. This in turn may harm Hexcel Corp’s. business operations. The company is also exposed to currency exchange risks, as it conducts business and supplies products to customers throughout the world. Moreover, the company’s share price underperformed the industry in the past year. However, the company’s strong air traffic growth and robust order flows on a global scale have been fueling growth in the commercial aircraft market, which in turn should boost its business."
