  • 2 Multi-Industry Names to Buy, 1 to Hold

    By Zain Abbas - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, GGG, HON

    Multi-industry companies are businesses that offer various products that are not limited to one industry. And for simplicity's sake, we can call them conglomerates as well. With the earnings season on a go, many are impatiently waiting for the earnings calls so that they can gauge the health of the end markets of these companies. A weak Europe, slower-than-anticipated growth in China and a recovering US are all that more »

  • Defense and Commercial Flights Are on a Roll

    By Vanina Egea - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: ERJ, HON, BA

    In clear contrast to the defense-focused companies that are suffering from budget cuts in the U.S., the commercial aerospace sector is not feeling the heat of the financial meltdown. Airlines are boosting their demand for new airplanes, seeking to expand their fleets and upgrade them by acquiring more fuel-efficient and bigger planes that could improve their profit margins.

    By Damon Churchwell - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: GE, HON, ITW, UTX

    Which major industrial firms should one purchase to earn capital gains and dividends over the next three to five years. One way to find out is to look at the recent histories of companies and believe that the same will hold true over the long term.

  • M&A Activity Is Making Movers Out of Shakers

    By Michael Mandala - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: ACAR, ADVS, HON, PEP, SODA

    It seems to be a distant memory when the titans of Wall Street pulled in multi-million dollar merger and acquisition deal fees. It almost seems to be out of style. But then why are we hearing rumors of wars rumbling the Street all the way uptown through Park Avenue?

    The easy answer is that merger and acquisition activity is back. The first quarter of 2013 dialed in $542 billion in more »

  • Offloading This Division Could Be a Boon for This Aerospace Company

    By Mike Thiessen - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: GE, HON, TDG

    Although the deal represents little more than a rounding error on GE's (NYSE: GE) massive balance sheet, the news that the conglomerate would sell its aviation actuation division to TransDigm (NYSE: TDG) has piqued investors' interest. GE has a major stake in the aviation industry, but it appears that its management team found this particular division to be redundant or unnecessary. For TransDigm, it represents a solid pickup that more »

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: EMR, GE, HON

    Editor's Note: The original article refers to Darius Adamczyk as the CEO and President of Honeywell. That is incorrect, this version has been corrected and Motley Fool apologizes for the error.

  • A Good Company Is Not Necessarily a Good Investment

    By Mark Lin - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: HON, TDG, UTX

    Choice (or the lack thereof) matters. A company is more likely to have a sustainable competitive advantage if its customers have limited choices when it comes to purchasing similar products. TransDigm Group (NYSE: TDG), an aerospace-parts supplier focused on small, niche parts, is the single source of supply for its customers for more than three-quarters of its products in terms of revenue. But a good company is not necessarily a more »

    By Michael Mandala - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: CPSI, HON, MSFT, NOK

    There is no doubt that in an up market you will find sectors late to the market rally party. Tech and IT stocks such as Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Nokia (NYSE: NOK), and Computer Programs & Systems (NASDAQ: CPSI) strengthen the case for finding high quality and value in a rising market.

    Since the first quarter of 2012, year-over-year profits for tech and information technology companies have been falling to the tune more »

  • 3 Defense Stocks With Tremendous Upside Potential

    By Daniel Paterson - June 9, 2013 | Tickers: HON, TXT, UTX

    We are about four months since the sequestration kicked in, and defense stocks have yet to plunge off of some imaginary cliff. Surprisingly, companies in this industry were able to achieve successful Q1 results despite the impending cutbacks. 

    A cutback in government spending can provide a powerful opportunity for great businesses that can manage costs to maintain, and maybe even increase, their market share. The larger government contractors, especially those more »

  • Are Aerospace Stocks Set to Soar?

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 9, 2013 | Tickers: HON, PH, BA

    As nations around the world become more integrated, and as globalization helps increase the quality of life for those in developing countries, the demand for aircraft will increase.

  • Consider These Defense Stocks

    By Vanina Egea - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: HON, BA, UTX
