Triumph Group (NYSE:TGI) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a research note issued on Saturday. The brokerage currently has a $32.00 target price on the aerospace company’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price objective indicates a potential upside of 9.97% from the company’s previous close.
According to Zacks, “Triumph Group’s focus on driving organic growth has been reasonably strong based on the addition of products and services, expansion of operating capacity and marketing of a range of products. The company is committed on enhancing shareholder value through a systematic share repurchase program and payment of dividends at regular intervals. Triumph Group’s planned divestitures of non-core operating companies are progressing towards completion in fiscal 2018. However, a large percentage of Triumph Group’s aftermarket sales come from third-party repair and overhaul thus exposing it to tough competition from OEMs as well as third-party organizations. Further, Triumph Group underperformed the broader industry over the last year. The company’s performance also depends largely on the orders of defense majors like Boeing.”
