Company Report

Heico Earnings: Solid Results and Prospects for Continued Acquisition; Fair Value Up 1% to $173

Heico's second-quarter 2024 operating margins came in very close to our overall expectations. We tweaked the growth rates of the company's subordinate businesses and increased our forecast for the amount of growth it will likely acquire in the medium term, though these changes had very little effect on our fair value estimate, which we have updated to $173 per share from $171.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Heico independently develops replacement parts for highly complex aircraft components—the juiciest market segment in aerospace, with a fraction of the required R&D as OEMs.

Bears

Private equity firms have entered the defense supplier market and may push up prices for target companies, which would limit Heico's ability to generate value-accretive inorganic growth.
