What are Wall Street analysts saying about Harris stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Harris stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Harris reported solid fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results, wherein both the top line and the bottom line surpassed the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. Harris' revenue generating capabilities are buoyed by the possibility of greater military spending by the United States, owing to tensions with North Korea and Iran. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past year on an average. In addition, Harris offered a bullish guidance for fiscal 2019 owing to its impressive performance in fiscal 2018 and benefits from the new tax law. However, increasing cost of operations is likely to contract the profitability of the company in the near term. Gross margin has decreased considerably over the past few fiscals. This erodes the growth potential of Harris to some extent. The company is also trading at a premium on EV/EBITDA basis. Moreover, its high leverage acts as a deterrent for some investors." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "December quarter results powered by enterprise HDD revenue accelerating to 9% y/y growth, back to 2014 levels. Guidance implies ~$5/share in annual EPS power; raising 12-month price target to $52, from $44. Maintain Hold rating based on flattish growth prospects." (1/30/2018)
