General Dynamics Q3 2021 earnings release

The company’s stock has made strong gains since the beginning of the year but experienced weakness after it reported weaker-than-expected revenues for the third quarter of 2021. However, earnings increased and beat estimates in the September quarter.

A few weeks ago, the company reported a net income of $860 million or $3.09 per share for the three months ended September 2021, which is higher than last year’s profit of $834 million or $2.90 per share and above analysts’ consensus estimates.

The bottom line benefitted from a 2% increase in revenues to $9.6 billion. Market watchers had predicted a faster growth. The current momentum is expected to continue in the remainder of the year and beyond, thanks to continued order growth and new contracts.
