Crane Getting Some Credit For Cycle Leverage, But Has More To Give
Crane is off to a good start in this upturn, with revenue ahead of expectations and better margin leverage, and around half of the business really has yet to turn. MRO and debottlenecking is helping the PFT business now, but project activity should start ramping up in 2022. Longer term, management is focusing on product innovation to drive new opportunities. Commercial aerospace is a multiyear recovery story, but one that management wants to augment by leveraging product development opportunities in areas like electrification and thermal management. Mid single-digit FCF growth and mid-teens margins can support a double-digit return from here, and there's still room beyond that for beat-and-raise performance.
