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 is highly dependent on sales revenue to the U.S. Government. In addition, the company has significant volume of sales to foreign military bases, which are subject to numerous regulations that can hold up sales or result in their cancellation. Furthermore, foreign defense spending tends to be highly volatile, which can move large chunks of sales quarter to quarter. Margin woes remain a perennial threat for the company as well. Increasing cost of operations is likely to contract the profitability of the company in the near term. Harris' high debt levels remain a potent threat, discouraging investors to some extent. The stock has also underperformed the industry, on an average, in the past three months. However, Harris' steady investments in business innovation remain encouraging. The continuous efforts of the company to reward its shareholders with risk-adjusted returns are also commendable." (7/3/2018)
  • 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)
