Embraer S.A. (ERJ): Today's Featured Aerospace/Defense Loser

Embraer S.A ( ERJ) pushed the Aerospace/Defense industry lower today making it today's featured Aerospace/Defense loser. The industry as a whole closed the day up 0.8%. By the end of trading, Embraer S.A fell 21 cents (-0.8%) to $25.25 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1.2 million shares of Embraer S.A exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 1.3 million shares. The stock ranged in price between $24.99-$25.46 after having opened the day at $25.45 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $25.46. Other company's within the Aerospace/Defense industry that declined today were: Esterline Technologies ( ESL), down 2.3% and American Defense Systems Inc ( EAG), down 1.8%.

Embraer S.A. engages in the development, production, and sale of jet and turboprop aircraft for civil and defense aviation markets. Embraer S.A has a market cap of $4.86 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 14.4, equal to the average aerospace/defense industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 13.4% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday.

TheStreet Ratings rates Embraer as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.

On the positive front, Astrotech ( ASTC), up 8.9%, Aerosonic Corporation ( AIM), up 6.7%, Astronics Corporation ( ATRO), up 4%, and Sifco Industries Inc ( SIF), up 4%, were all gainers within the aerospace/defense industry with Rockwell Collins Inc ( COL) being today's featured aerospace/defense industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the aerospace/defense industry could consider iShares DJ US Aerospace & Def Idx ( ITA) while those bearish on the aerospace/defense industry could consider ProShares Short Dow 30 ( DOG).
