  • 2. Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We review our Buy thesis on Mercury Systems after spending time with management recently. MRCY has come a long way in the last year with LTM sales +40%, EBITDA +50% & the stock +130%. But, we think there's more to go in light of our view that the company fits nicely within an evolving defense paradigm as outlined in our March 1 deep-dive. We initiated coverage on the company with a Buy in June 2016 highlighting benefits from a positive budget backdrop & improving outsourcing trends. We stand by those conclusions & reiterate our Buy as MRCY continues to expand its reach. PT rises on higher estimates. And we continue to see a path to ~$60 over time given customer outsourcing behavior." (3/20/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "MRCY reported GAAP EPS from cont. ops of $0.13 for FQ2:17, ahead of our forecast of $0.11. Better operations accounted for the beat. Adjusted for acquisition expense and one-time items, EPS was $0.30, $0.05 better than our estimate. We are increasing our FY17 and FY Adjusted EPS estimates to $1.14 and $1.60, respectively, from $1.08 and $1.50. The FY17 boost reflects Q2 performance and the contribution from the recently closed CES acquisition." (1/24/2017)
