What are Wall Street analysts saying about Northrop Grumman stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Northrop Grumman stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "As a major U.S. defense contractor, Northrop Grumman continues to enjoy a strong position in the Air Force, Space & Cyber Security programs. Increasing international opportunities are expected to boost the company’s margin growth. Its product line is also well positioned in high priority categories, such as defense electronics, unmanned aircraft and missile defense, which nables the company to clinch notable contracts from Pentagon and foreign allies. Northrop Grumman outperformed the industry in a year’s time. However, it continues to incur high operating expenses on account of increasing product costs. Such higher operating expenses tend to hurt profit margins. A comparative analysis of its historical EV/EBITDA ratio reflects a relatively gloomy picture that might be a cause for Northrop Grumman’s investors’ concern." (9/10/2019)
  • 2. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "Wes Bush will step down as CEO and Kathy Warden (current President and COO) will take his place on Jan 1, 2019. We see no change to the long- term growth plans for the company." (12/19/2018)
