- The commercial aerospace segment still provides opportunities for double-digit gains over the next 18 months, as the "aero cycle has legs," J.P. Morgan analyst Seth Seifman says, initiating coverage of Boeing (NYSE:BA) and several peers with Overweight ratings.
- Boeing’s cash flow outlook has been controversial, but Seifman views 787 unit cost reduction as a powerful driver that can push free cash flow to $9.1B in 2017, 44% above 2015 estimates with potential for growth beyond; Seifman sees the precedent Boeing set by returning $8B of cash last year as a signal of confidence in future cash flow.
- General Dynamics' (NYSE:GD) balance sheet might drive upside, while Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) could use its financial strength to create value, but Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) is started at Underweight, as the analyst sees "fewer arrows left in the quiver" and expectations may be too high following recent outperformance in its shares.
- Initiated at Overweight along with Boeing: GD, LMT, SPR, TDG.
- Started at Neutral: BEAV, COL, PCP, TGI, TXT, HRS, LLL

- Jets from General Dynamics' (NYSE:GD) Gulfstream Aerospace unit also are being considered to replace the aging fleet of larger Boeing (NYSE:BA) 707 planes that are becoming too costly to fly in their role of monitoring forces on the ground.
- Northrop (NYSE:NOC) and Boeing also have said they plan to compete for the contract when the Air Force awards a deal, likely in 2016.
