2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Guru Investment Theses on Precision Castparts Corp

Wallace Weitz Comments on Precision Castparts - Oct 17, 2014

Precision Castparts (PCP) is a global, diversified manufacturer of complex metal components and products sold primarily to aerospace, power and industrial customers. CEO Mark Donegan is a first-rate operator, sound strategic thinker and highly skilled acquirer / integrator. Concerns over the health of the new commercial aircraft cycle provided us an opportunity to establish an initial position at what we believe is an attractive discount. We have been heartened by management’s more recent decisions to repurchase stock and look forward to the prospect of additional value-accretive M&A in the future.

Westport Select Cap Fund Comments on Precision Castparts Corp - Jul 28, 2014

Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP), the Fund’s second largest position, was off 6%, costing 61 basis points. There are questions regarding the future organic growth rate of the commercial aircraft industry and the company. This comes despite the company’s continuing profit improvement as it integrates recent acquisitions.

Westport Fund Comments on Precision Castparts Corp - Jul 28, 2014

The cancellation of a large order for Airbus A-350 aircraft by the United Arab Emirates caused investors to question the bright outlook for commercial aircraft production. Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP), a major supplier of aerospace components, saw its shares decline, decreasing portfolio return by 32 basis points in this period. These events appear transitory and should not have a long term impact on valuation.

Sequoia Fund's Discussion of Precision Castparts - Mar 07, 2014

The fiscal year of Precision Castparts ends in March. Through the first nine months of the fiscal year, sales increased 20% and earnings per share advanced 26%. The company is on track to earn about $12 for fiscal 2014, up about 23% from $9.36 a year ago. Precision continues to deploy its cash flow on acquisitions. Its $2.9 billion acquisition of Timet , the largest independent titanium manufacturer in the U.S., is on track to exceed original expectations for synergies. It expects to close the $600 million purchase of Permaswage, a maker of aerospace fittings, by the middle of 2014. Despite aggressive acquisition activity in recent years, Precision retains a strong balance sheet and plenty of flexibility to make more acquisitions. Management believes it will earn about $16 per share in fiscal year 2016, which implies high-teens annual growth.

Westport Asset Management Comments on Precision Castparts Corp. - Jan 21, 2014

Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP) is a prime component supplier to the commercial aircraft manufacturers. Indicative of the attractiveness of this business was The Boeing Company ' s recent announcement that its year - end backlog was 5,080 planes compared to the 648 jets delivered in 2013. By the same token, Airbus ' (a subsidiary of Airbus Group NV) backlog at the end of November was 5,400 versus the 562 planes del ivered in the first eleven months of the year.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Precision Castparts Corp. - Jan 06, 2014

Precision Castparts Corp. (1.6%) (PCP - $227.24 - NYSE)(PCP) is a manufacturer of investment castings and forgings, primarily for the aerospace and industrial gas turbine markets. The company also makes fasteners and industrial products for the automotive, aerospace, and general industrial markets. PCP is a strong cash flow generator, and we continue to believe the company will use its cash for acquisitions, such as the recently completed Titanium Metals Corporation. PCP's acquisition strategy centers on buying businesses within the company's core competencies, which include manufacturing component products for complex end users. The strategy also includes finding companies that have procurement or technologies similar to PCP's and similar customer profiles. These characteristics should provide opportunities for PCP to improve the acquired company's profitability, thereby enhancing PCP's earnings.

Westport Asset Management Comments on Precision Castparts - Aug 08, 2013

Making the third largest contribution for the half was Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP), the components supplier to the aerospace industry. After being essentially flat in the first quarter, the stock rose over 19% in the second quarter, adding 177 basis points to performance. As we had anticipated, the shares rose as problems with Boeing's 787 were resolved.
