Mario Gabelli Comments on Honeywell International Inc.

February 19, 2014 | About:

Honeywell International Inc. (2.6%) (HON)($91.37 - NYSE) is a leading producer of avionics, power, and electronic systems for the aerospace market, as well as process automation and security products for the industrial, residential, and commercial building markets. The company also makes turbochargers for the automotive industry and provides technologies to the energy market. HON offers excellent products, has a strong balance sheet, and generates substantial free cash flow that could be used for internal growth, acquisitions, and stock repurchases. In addition, the company is executing on its long term strategy to expand in less costly regions of the world, while reducing costs in more costly countries by closing plants, consolidating facilities, and implementing six sigma and lean manufacturing. HON is on track to achieve its five-year targets, outlined in 2009, of growing revenues at a 6% - 8% compounded annual growth rate to a range of $41 to $45 billion and expanding the segment margin by 300 - 500 basis points to 16% - 18%. Achieving these goals should position HON for greater profitability gains in the future.
