Will Honeywell Stock Rise Following A 9% Fall In A Month?

HON: Honeywell logo

The stock price of Honeywell (NYSE: HON) continues to underperform the broader indices. While the S&P500 index has seen a rise of 10% over the last six months, HON stock is down around 9%. Now, many of the industrial stocks, including MMM, CAT, and GE, have also underperformed the broader markets with negative returns of around 10% or more in the last six months. More recently, the concerns of the new Covid-19 variant – Omicron – and its impact on economic growth has spooked the markets at large. Industrial stocks, such as Honeywell and General Electric, have exposure to the Aerospace segment, with airlines being one of the worst hit sectors during the pandemic. For Honeywell, unlike some of the other industrial companies, including Caterpillar and Deere, the rebound in sales has been slower. In fact, its Aerospace segment sales are still down 5% y-o-y for the nine months period ending September 2021.

Now, with reports emerging that the impact of Omicron on the overall economic growth may not be as profound as earlier anticipated, this has given a breather to the overall markets. [1] And despite the lower sales for Aerospace, the company has posted overall revenue growth so far this year, led by gains across its other segments – Building Technologies, Performance Materials, and Safety & Productivity Solutions. Our Honeywell Revenues dashboard provides more details on the company’s segments.

Looking forward, if Omicron doesn’t result in a spike in total Covid-19 cases, the commercial airlines industry at large should continue to rebound, boding well for Honeywell. And, going by our Honeywell Valuation of $248 per share, based on EPS estimate of $8.03 and a P/E multiple of 31x in 2021, there is an upside potential of 20% from the current market price of around $206.
