Airbus: Jefferies downgrades stock
(CercleFinance.com) - Jefferies has downgraded its rating on the Airbus share from "buy" to "hold", despite raising its corresponding target price from 110 euros to 120 euros, saying "it may be years before the consequences of the 737 MAX grounding are clear".
It also believes that the next 24 to 36 months do not look propitious for financial largesse on the part of Airbus other than for investment that will at least maintain, but
preferably reinforce the business.
The broker adds, "We believe Airbus must invest to anticipate environmental pressure, not least to prevent a competitor like China doing a technology 'undercut'."
