One the Line: Barnes Group CEO Greg Milzcik

Thursday, 2 Aug 2007 | 7:30 PM ET

Some on Wall Street claim the bull market in aerospace is getting a bit long in the tooth, Cramer said. But he thinks the sector still has some life in it.

Barnes Group CEO and President Greg Milzcik, today’s call-in guest on Mad Money, agreed: “It’s incredibly strong, and we’re in the sweet spot of the current aerospace cycle.”

Mad Money host Jim Cramer interviews Barnes Group CEO Greg Milzcik.

Barnes focuses on difficult-to-manufacture parts, exotic materials and what Milzcik called “high-volume, high growth platforms,” like those used in the 787.

Milzcik said his company has done a number of things to position itself for the long term that are paying off now. Specifically, Barnes has spent over $350 million over the past seven years in aerospace on acquisitions, revenue-sharing partnerships and capital expansion.

Analysts seemed disappointed with Barnes’ distribution business, but the Milzcik said the company has laid out a plan for sales and margin growth.

“Let the downgrades come and then I would buy some,” Cramer said. “This stock’s just too cheap when it gets down to $20. It’s just too cheap.”
