Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

General Dynamics’ Gulfstream franchise has top-tier volume share and margin in the large end of the business jet market and has successfully transitioned to new G500, G600, and G650 models. Business jets are in high demand as the pandemic wanes.

Bears

General Dynamics depends on U.S. military funding, which is an inherently political and thus uncertain process.
