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' 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 merger with L3 Technologies will augment its market position offering it economies of scale. The deal will enable Harris to increase scale, strengthen core businesses and fortify position as a premier global defense technology company. Harris offered a bullish guidance for fiscal 2019. Additionally, multiple contract wins bode well for the company. The stock has also outperformed the industry in the past two years on an average. However, increasing cost of operations is likely to contract the profitability of the company in the long term. Cost of goods sold witnessed a compound annual growth rate of 4.4% from fiscal 2014 to fiscal 2018, eroding the gross profit of the company and affecting its growth potential to some extent." (1/3/2019)
  • 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)
