Recent misses in Defense contracts, losing out to BA and others. Recent acquisition of simulator businesses, will be stressed to integrate in operations. Expect stall speed warning for next year or so. near non existent dividends, over the mark P/E most metrics look mediocre. Stay clear for at least a year...

People are way too excited that the personal jet business will rebound. It will improve, but not that much. If you own the stock, sell it when the price gets a little higher.

'Twas at a price of 24.19 on 1-7-11 when I first caught wind of Textron's foul odor through the Smelloscope.

It smelled just like it scored: 30 points out of 100. One of the worst ranking stocks the Smelloscope has ever smelt.

Here's why:

Negative, unstable ROE%, ROA%, and Net Profit margins. Decreasing gross margin. A mediocre P/E and an inconsistent book value per share. An unstable debt to equity ratio and a weak dividend. Negative insider trading. Over 8% short interest (as a percentage of float).

The bottom line:

While Textron does have an intriguing P/FCF and P/Sales... I wonder if that could be partially because their long term debt is 2/3 the size of their total current assets.

Again, I don't know a lot about this industry or the company... but I wonder if Textron's customers are really going to be purchasing enough Cessna's over the next few years (in a struggling world economy) to make up for their moldy fundamentals.

I wouldn't put real money on shorting this stock. But I'll sure give it a downthumb with the Stankometer!

TheSmelloscope is a value rating system created to evaluate stocks for fun. It is operated by a novice investor named djshagggyd. NOVICE being the key word. Do not follow the Stankometer's advice without conducting your own due diligence.

TEXTRON IS A VERY TIGHTLY RAN COMPANY, THAT HAS MADE EFFORTS TO REDUCE ITS DEBT IN SOME WORST TIMES IN THE U.S. HISTORY AND IS ALWAYS TRYING TO IMPROVE THE BOTTOM LINE FOR NEW PRODUCTS AS WELL ITS INVESTORS.

I believe Textron will be back to its $50 range by March of 2011.
