Earnings were soft, especially on the revenue side. Showing vulnerabilities and still needs time to correct.

With having Gulfstream, GD's aviation divisiont and the business jet industry that is growing like wildfire, I think GD will definitely benefit.

As of June 30th, 2014, General dynamics has outperformed the S&P 500 over the last:

10 yrs by 59.06%
5 yrs by -(2.98%)
1 yr by 26.84% (since june 2013).

-It has an above average EPS (7.13), which means it has around 35 times more income than outstanding shares (more than all its competitors except Lockheed Martin)
-The lowest P/E ratio of all its competitors: 16.35 (the average P/E ratio of S&P companies in 2013 was 18.19)
-Average volatility
-Sound management indicated by continuous growth and slow but steady recovery from the financial crisis

In terms of financials (annual data from 2013-2012) GD has:

-$35 B in total assets
-$14 B in total equity (more than all its competitors, except Honeywell)
-$31 B in revenue
-$2 B in net income
-$3 B in total debt (lower than all its competitors)

In perspective, it has a lot of equity, an above average income/revenue ratio, industry-average assets, ever-increasing dividend and little debt.

All these indicators show that GD is undervalued and will continue to outperform the S&P in the long run.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Undervalued vs peers. GD doesn't have stellar projected EPS growth, but doesn't deserve to be sitting at it's current PE either. I'd like to see this one trading at $105 towards the end of 2014.

Aside from defense spending cuts, the Army simply has no need for aquiring additional tanks. The stryker program is also being downsized considerably. Sure, they are consolidating a lot of their businesses and acheiving impressive cost cutting, and those strategic moves will likely keep the bottom line of this company looking quite impressive for some time to come. However, it will be crucial to pay attention to the top line revenue declines that will be sure to impact this company over the next several years. From a macro perspective and in conclusion, there is no reason this stock should be trading near all time highs as we pull out of Afghanistan and seek to downsize out military.

Going to give this a long term outperform as a bit of a homer. I used to monitor the company's efforts and products in the defense industry and although I've seen R&D sink a healthy chunk of taxpayer money I think GD has a good chance to turn a profit on their innovations long term.

Defense industry all day long;
Plus GD's design for the LCS is going to be used in the Pacific theater as the Navy moves to the Pacific. Looks to be profitable.
