AerCap’s Q2 results provide a strong reminder of the company’s attractive investment proposition. The quarter itself was a significant beat versus estimates owing to net gains on sale of $70m at a margin of 17% over book value. In contrast, the stock trades at an 8% discount to book. Gains on sale aside, the net spread was stable at 9.3% and the company reiterated its commitment to shareholder value with a new $250m buyback. We rate the stock ‘Outperform’ with a $60 price target.
