Within the aerospace & defense sector, we see a low diversification of the 12-months returns. Since June last year the sector is around 5 percent higher. Among the winners we find Kratos Defense and Security Solutions, Mercury Systems and HEICO. Relatively big losses were for Maxar Technologies, GomSpace AB and Velocity Composites.
The winners in this sector are the large caps, while smallcaps are mostly among the less performers.
Regarding the price/earnings-ratios we see a uniform palette. The large caps are with the price/earnings-ratio of 20 the most expensive. The smallcaps are the cheapest and trade at 18 times the earnings per share. Rolls-Royce Holdings, Avon Rubber and Chemring Group are the stocks with the highest ratios. Stocks with the lowest ratios are Triumph, Leonardo SpA and Sogeclair SA.
The sector's average dividend yield is with 1 percent relatively limited. Stocks now high dividend yields now are Avio SpA, Sogeclair SA and Lockheed Martin.
