Back in early July we commenced 'Pro' service coverage of Virgin Galactic (SPCE). We declared the stock a Buy. We said the market had not really recognized the degree to which serious people were doing serious work at the company. We thought the stock could outperform. Well, so far, it has. In a hot hot market, SPCE has outpaced the Nasdaq and the S&P alike since our Pro 'Buy' call. We walk you through this below and we consider whether taking profits now is wise or not.
Our "Baseline Outlook" note on Maxar Technologies (MAXR) is now live. Subscribers can view the note here.
Maxar Technologies (MAXR) is a $3.7bn EV remote sensing business, one of very few stocks offering investors pure-play exposure to the high growth space sector. The bulk of the company's value is a result of its dominance of security-cleared Earth imaging services provided to federal government agencies. In addition the company has civilian clients for such imaging, and builds communication satellites on a to-order basis - most recently for Intelsat. MAXR stock suffered a brutal fall from grace through 2018, a result of leveraged overexpansion by the prior management team, compounded by a rare on-orbit failure of a Lockheed Martin-built imaging satellite. A new CEO and team took the reins in 2019 and has put in an exceptionally strong performance in restructuring the company. Their work is not yet complete but the worst risks are behind them and the future is bright. The stock has yet to recover to anything like its former high. And therein lies the opportunity.
We noted on 4 September that ManTech International (MANT) could be in play following the retirement of its founder. The list of suitors is long, but we believe Science Applications International Corp (SAIC) ought to acquire the company. Our latest Pro note lays out our logic and proposes a potential acquisition model.
