Bombardier (TSX: BBD.B)_May_08_2018

Bombardier has had an excellent run since the stock reached all time lows of close to CAD$ 0.65 in 2016. Currently, the stock has move either way depending on key market conditions. BBD has quite the large debt (close to $9 Billion). The news of the CSeries partnership with Airbus, their upcoming Business Jet, excellent sales on the transportation sector and sale of underutilised assets has generated considerable buzz and increased confidence in the company and leadership team. However, the coming few weeks/months will be crucial as the sale of the CSeries to Airbus is supposed to clear all regulatory hurdles this year; as well as their new business jet the Global 7000 is getting certified this year; the transportation sector is also expecting new orders esp . in BBD's home state of Quebec. If these events go smoothly, the stock might push the CAD 5-6. On the other hand, if the CSeries deal emerges as a freebie to Airbus and there is delay in the business jet entry into service coupled with any renewed tensions from the US in regards to NAFTA, the stock might fell back in the CAD$ 2-3 price range.
