11:36 EDTGD, NOC, ERJ, BA, BAESY, LMT, EADSYBoeing tumbles after fiscal 2014 outlook disappoints
Boeing (BA), a leader in aerospace and member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, is one of today's losers after the firm reported better than expected fourth quarter results, but issued guidance for fiscal 2014 that fell significantly short of expectations. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Boeing reported fourth quarter core EPS of $1.88 and revenue of $23.79B, compared to analysts' consensus estimate of $1.57 and $22.74B, respectively. The company guided FY14 core EPS to 7.00-$7.20, compared to consensus of $7.57. FY14 revenue was forecast at $87.5B-$90.5B, below expectations of $92.72B. The company said it expects to make commercial deliveries of 715 to 725 planes in 2014, which includes approximately 110 deliveries of its 787 models. Total company operating cash flow before pension contributions is expected to be approximately $7B, while operating cash flow is expected to be approximately $6.25B in 2014, Boeing added. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors this morning, Wells Fargo said Boeing's cash flow outlook could pressure shares. The firm viewed Boeing's free cash outlook as disappointing since it implied no major ramp-up in share repurchases. Wells thought this could pressure the stock, but recommended using any weakness as a buying opportunity since the company typically guides conservatively. Wells kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Boeing shares fell about 4.6% to $130.77 on heavy volume. The stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $144.57 earlier this month, and has gained approximately 77% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Boeing's primary competitor in terms of commercial airplanes is Airbus (EADSY). Other aerospace companies include BAE Systems (BAESY), Embraer (ERJ), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC), and General Dynamics (GD).
