Hexcel Corporation Research Report

Hexcel recently reported Q4 2012 results, with a 9 percent growth in revenue
at $387.3 million from $355.3 million the same quarter the previous year, but
with a 10 percent decline in earnings per share of 36 cents from 40 cents per
share year over year. In comparison, analysts polled by S&P Capital IQ
expected $392.3 million in revenue and 38 cents in earnings per share.
Meanwhile, management says a large backlog of orders at major customers
suggest being well positioned for 2013 and beyond, despite uncertainties with
the global economy. For fiscal year 2013, the company expects sales in the
range of $1.64 to $1.74 billion and earnings per share of $1.66 to $1.78. Free
cash flow is expected to reach anywhere from $20 to $60 million. The Full

Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc Research Report

Huntington Ingalls released its earnings results for fiscal Q4 and full-year
2012 last month, with Q4 revenues of $1.82 billion and earnings of 98 cents
per share. Full-year revenues came to $6.71 billion and earnings of $2.91 per
diluted share. The numbers beat estimates by 7 percent for revenue and 9
percent for earnings. In terms of growth, Huntington's full-year revenues grew
by 2 percent year over year, while operating income came to $358 million,
versus $100 million in 2011. However, cash contributions to fund its pension
fund hurt cash flow at Huntington last year, with cash from operations falling
37 percent to $332 million. Capital spending then reduced free cash flow
further at $170 million, or only 51 percent of last year's cash profits. The
