The wide-moat company will reveal details on its new midsize airplane and formally launch the 737 MAX-10 at next week's Paris Air Show.

A commitment to returning capital to shareholders via a dividend increase and share buyback program combined with prudent capacity plans make this carrier a favorite.

Second-quarter guidance from the airline points to a muted near-term revenue impact from last week’s incident, says Morningstar’s Chris Higgins.

Transdigm's competitive advantages stem from intellectual property and high switching costs on its products.

Investors should expect a new middle-of-the-market plane in the next 12 to 18 months to compete with Airbus' superior--and more popular--narrow-body offerings.
