Bombardier CSeries jets
Analyst David Tyerman of Canaccord Genuity said the decrease isn't likely tied to one event but rather to disappointment over Bombardier not winning an order from United Airlines and cumulative concerns about whether the company can withstand a macroeconomic downturn. Tyerman — who has a $1.30 price target for Bombardier — said it doesn't really matter if the shares are a few cents above or below $1, except in the case of some institutional investors who won't own shares of a company that are below that threshold. Unlike other stock exchanges, TSX rules don't have a set minimum share price but the exchange monitors the price as part of a broader set of criteria, said spokesman Mathieu Labreche. Meanwhile, analysts don't have high hopes when Bombardier's reports its fourth-quarter 2015 results Feb. 17. The company is expected to show two cents per share in adjusted net earnings on US$5.5 billion of revenues, down from four cents on nearly US$6 billion a year earlier.
