Honeywell: Margins Are Still The Story
- Honeywell reported strong Q1 2019 results that beat the top- and bottom-line estimates. Management also raised its full-year 2019 guidance.
- Additionally, Honeywell's margin profile is a key component of the bull case. So it is encouraging that the company's operating margin was over 20% again this past quarter.
- I am long Honeywell and I plan to stay long the stock.
Honeywell's ($HON) stock has outperformed the broader market by almost 6 percentage points over the last year.
In addition, HON shares are higher by ~28% so far in 2019 and, in my opinion, the stock still has room to run. As I previously described, the recent spinoffs - Garrett Motion and Resideo (REZI) - have Honeywell better positioned for the future and I believe that the company's most recent operating results show that there is a lot to like about this industrial conglomerate in today's environment. More specifically, Honeywell's margin profile makes the stock a great long-term buy even at current levels.
