What are Wall Street analysts saying about Spirit AeroSystems stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Spirit AeroSystems stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Spirit AeroSystems outperformed the broader industry in the last one year. The company is one of the largest independent non-OEM aircraft parts designers. In fact, the company’s focus on executing supply chain strategy, improving productivity and meeting its customers’ requirements for production rate changes is paying off, as well. Spirit AeroSystems’ maintenance of a strong balance sheet and steady cash flow position offers substantial financial flexibility and a cushion for paying dividend and ongoing share repurchases. However, factors like stiff competition and unexpected rise in costs remain major concerns. The company is also highly dependent on the U.S. government for military contracts and any change in the federal government’s budgetary policy could adversely impact the company. Unexpected rise in costs may also reduce its profit margins or cause the company to sustain losses on fixed-price contracts." (3/20/2018)

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)
