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.

Boy has this one jumped since the last time I looked at it.

I seems to be a successful company with steady growth and a positive future. It's P/E is in my prefered range and does not seem to just be a stagnant military contractor, but is looking to add products in the civilian markets as well.

Incidentally, I think that Aerospace is poised to jump with the next recovery and I am looking for good, healthy, forward thinking Aerospace companies to add, both here and in my personal portfolio.

With strong fundamentals and strong earnings and a no nonsense plan, this company continues to develop innovative products. I look for continued strong earnings as long as there is demand for it's military hardware and materials. However the company has a defined strategy for increasing it's presence in the civilian markets as well.

The latest Q4 2006 call is full of positives. They are due to soon fully recover from a major accident and have some great things to look forward. They are a well diversified company. Particularly in the civil aviation industry, they are a safer bet than trying to call EADS or BA - why not just buy on of their suppliers and you win whoever turns out on top!
ESL are suppliers to other aviation manufacturers as well, not just the top two.
