on My Watchlist
The Company is an independent original parts designer and manufacturer of aerostructures in the world.
I am getting long the providers to the airplane builders with this one. I think that they are going to have extra money to spend to continue to develop fleets of aging aircraft. A lot of the airlines held out due to the tough markets, but now that they are hitting on all cylinders I think that we will see some expansion of the airline fleets and retirement of some of the older aircraft. This is all a bet on the price of oil staying around where it is now and that the airlines start to reinvest in themselves.
Boeing deal about to close (per Crains ).

ratings were high .
Global leader in new and increasingly common composite aerospace structures. Big clients include both Boeing and Airbus. When Boeing finally starts 787 production, this stock will go up
Just signed 10 year labor agreement; Boeing work will continue to increase, as well contracts for other airplane manufacturers
believe that with spirits international coverage along with boeing it should double in the next couple of years.
I agree that the airline / aviation industry is set to turn around and will leverage more fuel efficient technologies for future as well as existing GA and Commercial aviation products.
Low relative PE, good star ranking, PEG & 09 PE still below normal - bottom fishing 7/27 picks (late getting them in this week).
As a former aerospace engineer I feel compelled to show some affection for this branch of industry and support them. I know the job market currently is in the dumps for automotive engineers but it's all guns blazing on the aero side just now! I expect an increase in the share price as it's been beaten below ½ it's 52 week high.
Based on HG pick.
"Reflecting increased caution over commercial aero fundamentals driven by slowing GDP growth, consumer spending pressures and airline ticket price rises, we have materially reduced assumptions for air traffic growth. We now believe global air traffic growth could slip into negative territory in 2009 and reflecting this we have cut OE delivery forecasts, now expecting a delivery peak in 09 vs. our prior assumption of 2010. Reflecting this, our Airbus and Boeing (NYSE: BA) delivery forecasts have been cut 13% in 2010 driving a 11% cut to SPR's 2010 EPS."short fun -
Planes are aging Spirit builds the cores and is also diversified in its customer base covering the BA giant to Cessna on the BJ side
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.
Has contracts with Boeing for several years out.
With their contrat with Boeing for their 787, Spirit will have plenty of income over the next few years. However, I believe they use Accrual basis accounting, so they might have already counted thsee chickens before the eggs hatched.
Price reduced due to production delays of major client, but this will be resolved over time. Meanwhile, this is a strongly favored supplier.
Spirit will rise and fall with the commercial airliner manufacturing market. When Boeing is up, so will be Spirit. They are diligently working to diversify by picking up military contractual work.
