MDA Stock Offers Diversified Exposure to Space Theme

Only a few movie sequels ever truly succeed. One exception is “The Empire Strikes Back,” which every Star Wars fan knows is the best film of the series. The investors who backed the film would also agree, as it grossed about $550 million worldwide in 1980. In today’s greenbacks, that’s more than $1.7 billion when adjusted for inflation. However, more often than not, sequels rarely do better than the original – critically or financially. Spin-off companies are another type of sequel that bombs more often than not. Again, there are exceptions, such as Mondelez International (MDLZ), a Fortune 500 company with a market cap of more than $86 billion that was the core of Kraft Foods’ $36 billion snack division before the 2012 split. 

That brings us to MDA (MDA.TO), a Canadian space company spun off from Maxar Technologies (MAXR) that went public last month. It’s an intriguing story, with a few plot twists along the way. But will we find the story compelling enough to buy in?
