  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Spirit AeroSystems ended second quarter of 2018 on a mixed note. While its bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, top line failed to meet the consensus mark. The company is one of the largest independent non-OEM aircraft parts designers. Accelerated defense-related activities within the United States has been contributing to the company’s Fuselage Systems unit’s top-line growth. Spirit AeroSystems has outperformed the industry in the last year. However, the company operates in a highly competitive market. In order to keep up with other players in this space, the company needs to invest substantially for technological progress that would increase capital expenses and in turn may adversely affect its operations and financial condition." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We spent time on the road with management of Spirit AeroSystems (SPR). We believe management remains very confident in the near- and long-term outlook for the company now that it has finalized agreements with both Boeing and Airbus, and much of its financial and operational performance is now directly under its control. We continue to like SPR for its exposure to the 737, and believe that as sentiment on the commercial cycle remains positive, SPR will see a gradual grind higher as it executes to its plan. We are maintaining our BUY rating and our $86 price target." (11/17/2017)
