Spirit AeroSystems stock drops after wider-than-expected loss, as Boeing and Airbus deliveries sink
Shares of Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc. dropped 4.3% after the commercial and defense aircraft structures supplier, which receives the bulk of its revenue from Boeing Co. , reported a much wider-than-expected loss as revenue fell well below expectations, citing the "dual challenges" of the 737 MAX grounding and the COVID-19 pandemic. The company swung to a net loss of $256 million, or $2.46 a share, from net income of $168 million, or $1.61 a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, the adjusted loss per share was $2.28, wider than the FactSet loss consensus of $1.25. Revenue sank 68% to $644.6 million, below the FactSet consensus of $830.2 million, as revenue of all three business segments declined more than forecast. Deliveries decreased to 159 shipsets during the quarter from 449 shipsets a year ago, including Boeing 737 MAX shipsets of 19 compared with 147 shipsets last year. For the third quarter, Spirit expects to record forward losses of $25 million to $35 million on Boeing's 787 program and losses of $13 million to $20 million on Airbus SE's A350 program. Spirit's stock has plunged 73.3% year to date through Monday, while Boeing shares have shed 50.2% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has slipped 6.6%.

Arconic swings to wider-than-expected loss and sales fall short as pandemic hurt end markets
Arconic Corp. swung to a wider-than-expected loss in the second quarter and revenue missed estimates, as the coronavirus pandemic hurt the car, aerospace, industrial and construction markets that it serves. The Pittsburgh, Pa.-based maker of aluminum used in cars and planes said it had a loss of $92 million, or 84 cents a share, in the quarter, after income of $5 million, or 4 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Sales slumped to $1.187 billion from $1,923 billion. The FactSet consensus was for a loss of 16 cents a share, and sales of $1.283 billion. The net loss includes $76 million of after-tax special items primarily related to a non-cash charge to annuitize U.K. pension obligations, debt issuance costs, plant closure costs, and a previously announced restructuring. Arconic started operating as a stand-alone company on April 1, "when sudden declines in critical end markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic shut down many of its customers' production facilities around the world," it said in a statement. The company took $200 million of cash conservation measures in April and has since increased that target to $250 million. Shares were not active premarket, but have gained 30% in the month to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 5%.
