Long Northrop Grumman (NOC) With Short S&P Hedge

Original Article Posted 06/12 Seeking Alpha By Shiraz Lakhi – Northrop Grumman (NOC) Offers Strong Upside Potential Based On Robust Free Cash Flow Yield

I am currently long Northrop Grumman (NOC), dollar-neutral hedged by the S&P 500 index ETF (SPY), in anticipation of NOC outperforming SPY over the next 3-4 weeks. Northrop Grumman Corporation, a conglomerate operating within the aerospace and defence technology industry, generates a current free-cash-flow of $2.08 billion (based on trailing 12 month data), with an enterprise-value of $19.55 billion. The free-cash-flow yield (FCF/EV) is therefore a solid 10.6% (implying undervalue based on yield), which offers deep value relative to peers within the same industry. Additional data in favor of NOC include a low PEG ratio of 1.21, a price/sales ratio of 0.57, institutional favored ownership exceeding 90%, and low book-to-market of 0.65 – by Shiraz Lakhi.
