B/E Aerospace Inc (BEAV): Today's Featured Aerospace/Defense Winner

B/E Aerospace (BEAV) pushed the Aerospace/Defense industry higher today making it today's featured aerospace/defense winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 0.1%. By the end of trading, B/E Aerospace rose $1.02 (2.6%) to $40.74 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1.5 million shares of B/E Aerospace exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of one million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $39.57-$40.88 after having opened the day at $39.70 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $39.72. Other companies within the Aerospace/Defense industry that increased today were: Erickson Air-Crane (EAC), up 7.7%, GenCorp (GY), up 4.9%, CPI Aerostructures (CVU), up 1.8%, and Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (SWHC), up 1.6%.

BE Aerospace, Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, and services commercial aircraft and business jet cabin interior products worldwide. B/E Aerospace has a market cap of $4.12 billion and is part of the industrial goods sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 15.4, equal to the average aerospace/defense industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 2.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are 12 analysts that rate B/E Aerospace a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and three rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates B/E Aerospace as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Astrotech Corporation (ASTC), down 4.9%, Elbit Systems (ESLT), down 4.3%, Aerovironment Incorporated (AVAV), down 2.9%, and Aerosonic Corporation (AIM), down 2.5%, were all laggards within the aerospace/defense industry with L-3 Communications Holdings (LLL) being today's aerospace/defense industry laggard.

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).
