Debt to equity ratios are getting too high, plus they have missed out on a few contracts, one of which they had for 50 years.

While cost cutting measures have helped significantly to the bottom line, but attitude change in not chasing low/non-profitable ventures will be significant to the future performance of the company. Short term cost increases will be seen as the company ramps up hiring to replace aging worker population. Additional savings will be seen by these same higher paid employees retiring.

In the short run the stock is at its year low; so I would expect some short term capital gains; but the administration is cutting the defense budget by 50% or more. NOC relies on government contracts heavily, so in the long term this may not be a good play.

Government cutbacks will hurt defense contractors over the next few years as governments deal with fiscal austerity and winding down overseas deployments.

Big defense contractor with leading market position. Spinning off low-margin shipbuilding business that has been depressing overall earnings. Through the spin-off, NOC will be able to unload a significant amount of debt on the shipbuilder, and allow it to focus on its higher margin businesses. An additional kicker can be found in the proposed spin-off. It looks like the shipbuilding business will have significant leverage. Additionally, the business’ margins have been substantially decreased by difficulties in the gulf coast. The company has decided to close one of the shipyards by 2013. The high leverage creates an opportunity in that any operating improvements will be amplified in earning growth. It appears management will have a considerable stake in the new entity and long-term incentives. The proposed CEO, Mike Petters, has an outstanding track record, as well as a reputation for frugality. Here is a good article on him: (http://articles.dailypress.com/2011-01-09/business/dp-nws-cp-mike-petters-northrop-20110109_1_shipbuilding-enterprise-matt-mulherin-shipyard). Long NOC now, but looking to pick up shares of the spin-off at a bargain post distribution.
