Growth Stocks to Buy: ATI (ATI)


The American producer of specialty materials ATI (NYSE:ATImay benefit fundamentally from several key factors. It includes its strong position in the aerospace and defense (A&D) markets, strategic transformation initiatives and financial performance.

To begin with, ATI has a robust presence in the aerospace and defense sectors, which have been consistently performing well. A&D sales have been upward, growing 5% QoQ and a remarkable 39% YoY. The defense sector specifically has shown significant growth. In this context, sales surpassed $100 million in Q2 2023, representing a 7% QoQ and a 25% YoY increase.

One of ATI’s key growth areas is its involvement in advancing hypersonic technologies, which is experiencing accelerating demand. The company’s order backlog has surged by more than 20% YTD, reaching $3.5 billion by the end of June. This strong demand in A&D markets, including materials for military ground vehicles, rotorcraft and naval applications positions ATI for substantial long-term growth.

Moreover, ATI’s percentage of overall revenue attributed to A&D has increased from 46% to 58% in just one year, signaling rapid progress toward its goal of 65% A&D sales. This robust presence in A&D markets is a fundamental driver of the company’s long-term success.

Finally, ATI’s strategic transformation has been yielding significant benefits. In this direction, the HPMC segment has been a standout performer, with sales growing by 12% QoQ and an impressive 33% YoY. This growth has been driven by increasing commercial aerospace production and strong demand in the defense sector. Finally, the strategic expansion of HPMC and its focus on maintaining solid margins may lead to massive changes in its market valuation.
