11:16 EDTAVAV, LMT, GD, NOCAeroVironment rallies after better than expected results
Shares of AeroVironment (AVAV), which develops a portfolio of products and services for unmanned aircraft and efficient energy systems, are rallying after the company reported better than expected fourth quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, AeroVironment reported Q4 EPS of 35c and revenue of $73.5M, compared to analysts' consensus estimates of 22c and $69.62M, respectively. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company forecast fiscal 2015 revenue of $250M-$270M, compared to consensus of $256.2M, along with gross profit margins of 34.5%-37.5%. The company noted that planned increases in research and development and business development investments for Tactical Missile Systems, Commercial UAS and Global Observer business areas in FY15 may largely offset operating profit in the current fiscal year. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, AeroVironment soared $4.49, or 14.5%, to $35.45 on nearly five times its average daily trading volume. Including today's advance, the stock is up more than 70% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the unmanned aircraft space include Lockheed Martin (LMT), General Dynamics (GD), and Northrop Grumman (NOC), though all of those are significantly larger than AeroVironment.
