United technologies (UTC) Investment Risks

United Technologies’ revenues depend heavily on the performance of the commercial airline industry and global defense spending. Though the demand for commercial aircrafts is currently on the rise, aggressive budget cuts in the future may put UTC’s military sales at risk, with Sikorsky in particular suffering from a fall in sales. High unemployment in the European market and a contraction in the region’s GDP has already resulted in a fall in demand for commercial and military products. If these trends continue, they may lead to further losses for the company. UTC is also dependent on foreign suppliers for its raw material needs (Finland, Russia, Norway, Canada, South Africa, and Zimbabwe). Political turmoil in any of these countries may lead to a disruption in its supply chain, and problems delivering orders on time.

United technologies (UTC) Shareholder Activity

Institutional investors hold 87% of United Technologies’ total outstanding shares. State Street Corporation owns 12% of the total, holding a total of 110 million shares. BlackRock, Inc. is the second-largest shareholder, holding almost 55 million shares, equaling a 6% stake in the organization. The Vanguard Group is third on the list of largest stakeholders, with a total stake of 47 million shares, that is, 5% of total outstanding shares. The only significant insider transaction since the second quarter earnings release was initiated by Geraud Darnis, who sold 51,000 shares of the company at the average rate of $106.84 per share.

Boeing (BA) Investment Risks

Boeing depends heavily on the outlook and performance of the commercial airline industry and government military spending across the world. As such, the company faces the risk of declining commercial air travel due to a sluggish economy and reduced passenger traffic. It also faces manufacturing and performance risks—its 787 Dreamliner airplane being a classic example. In the defense segment, the industry faces uncertainty pertaining to the implementation of budget cuts in the military. A reduction in major development programs could result in order cancellations for Boeing.
