Laser peening, it's going to be big. I just saw a talk at my Rotary club about extending the life of certain engine parts by an order of magnitude.
My only worry is the guys are big scientists, not necessarily businessmen. We you worked all your life in a government lab do you have the urgency to keep ahead of the competition?

My yearlong upthumb has been a big loser, with the stock actually slipping while the S&P took off again. Things got even "worse" in Q3, with lowered guidance and vastly decreased revenues leading many investors to jump ship.

So why do I think this company is as good a buy as ever? Almost all of the bad news at CW came out of the Metal Treatment and energy segments, most tied to commercial clients and the overall economy, which has been, surprise, feeble in 2009.

In an environment of government-instigated liquidity, it's the phrases such as "strong increase in sales to our defense markets of $21 million, or 13%, driven by solid growth in both our naval and aerospace defense programs" coupled with "strong growth in our commercial nuclear power market" which make me optimistic. This isn't pie-in-the-sky "wave of the future" stuff; it's political reality. If the loosest spender in town (Uncle Sam) is either buying your products or ordering other people to, you're in a pretty privileged position. And now the stock just got cheaper!

Furthermore, the nine-month numbers aren't nearly as bad, relatively, and it's not like earnings have EVAPORATED. Q3 might be the second-worst of this recession for reports, as investors struggle intellectually to reconcile the recession's theoretical end with ugly year-over-years (remember, '08 Q3 numbers reflect spending which occurred before the serious brake-slamming at the end of '08). I predict the exact opposite in January, with the beginning of 2010 to look downright stunning aside its plain sister, this homely earnings season. A flattening or even an uptick in the beaten-down segments of CW, coupled with accelerated organic growth in the above-mentioned areas, and CW will be on its way back to cruising altitude faster than a taxpayer-funded fighter jet.

I can understanding hating to have bought it in April, but now's not the time to bail.

Showed up on a screen for solid 5 year growth with low debt, cash on hand and still at attractive P/E ratios.

Metal services division will pick up when infrastructure, industrial, and aerospace recover, which may be a few years. The electronic system division is moderately affected by changes in mil and aerospace but is dealing with that and will outperform. The flow control is not well known to me but will likely do well when oil and nuclear resume facilities and infrastructure building.

Nuclear industry.

Controls systems for Defense industry. Divisions are quickly picking up. This is a company to watch.

Strong position in nuclear energy, both power and defense (Navy) applications. Well diversified, and growing both organically and through rapidly accretive acquisitions. Long term holding.

The S&P will continue to tank so this is a no-brainer. Intelligent growth driven in part by strategic acquisitions. Top quality Division Managers keep the various divisions profitable even in these tough economic times.

Critical player in the nuclear power industry providing critical parts for nuclear power facilities. 5 year EPS up 15%.

CW dropped earlier this year, found bottom in April and appears to be heading back up, with a price around $50 it is a discount for LT investment. Expect $75 in a year and $100 by 2 years out.

So we have a large number of older plants and a diminished vendor base. The NRC is concerned about the quality of the parts and components. And nuclear plants always seem to need updated or replacement parts. Indeed, the occasion of renewing the original NRC license involves critical inspections. These inspections often trigger the need for refurbishing or manufacturing new parts. And that is when the telephone rings at Curtiss-Wright Corp.

Good Long Term Stock!

This stock along with the rest of the defense sector is heading higher. Say hello to investors and money managers looking to survive a recession this summer by jumping into defense. Learn to follow the crowd (mutual funds and such)--it consistantly weathers better than navigating against the grain.

You may have never heard of this company but it has a long history. Formed in 1929 by merger of the Wright (yes, as in Wright Brothers) and Curtiss aeronautical companies.

From the companies website:
"Curtiss-Wright is now a highly diversified, global corporation with a focus on advanced technologies for demanding applications in the defense, aerospace, energy and global industrial markets. In the defense market, we have balanced exposure on naval, aerospace and ground platforms, both on development programs and in support of current forces in the field. In the commercial markets, our roots remain firmly planted in the aerospace market. We have also built significant footholds in nuclear power generation and oil and gas markets through the application of complementary technologies and our knowledge of critical performance requirements. Our focus on technical innovation provides access to diverse markets where customers demand innovative, reliable and safe solutions. Our long-standing reputation for engineering excellence, superior performance and customer satisfaction should continue to generate excellent growth opportunities in each of our three business segments."

Curtiss Wright has been named by Forbes as one of America's most trustworthy companies. Growing dividends and profits, P/E 2.6 and off 52 week high says buy.

The long-term technicals say it all. They consistently show 10-15% sustained growth, have a fantastic management team. Id like to see them purchased in the near future but feel they could double in another 5 years.

CW has created a nice niche for itself in the exciting world of valves and motion control products. Most normal people dont care much about valves or motion control but when your landing an airplane, driving a submarine, drilling for oil, manning a nuclear power plant or trying to stabilize an aiming system on a tank, you have an interest in CW's products.

At one time CW created the engines for the B-17 bomber; now they create the motion control to open bomb bay doors and extend flaps on airplane wings to ensure a smooth landing.

They have a lot of debt on their balance sheet when compared to their total cash because they have been buying up companies left and right to expand thier valve and motion control business. They bought Synergy Microsystems for its computer board business; Indal Technologies, for its in shipboard helicopter handling systems; Cameron International Corporation to market underwater pumping systems to the offshore oil industry; Valve Systems and Controls (VSC) for its automation equipment, and controls for the flow control operations of the oil and gas industries; and Scientec LLC - a maker of nuclear power instrumentation, electrical components, and specialty hardware.
