Huntington Ingalls: Full Ahead for This Wide-Moat Shipbuilder; Shares Undervalued

Nicolas Owens Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Nicolas Owens |

We are picking up coverage of Huntington Ingalls with a wide moat rating, and compared with our fair value estimate of $283 per share, we see the stock as undervalued. While the long-cycle shipbuilding business does not offer the juiciest margins in the defense contracting industry, it represents perhaps the quintessential set of conditions that we see as providing durable competitive advantage and extreme visibility into revenue and profitability for decades.
