What are analysts saying about Jacobs Engineering Group stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Jacobs Engineering Group stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the last one year, Jacobs’ shares outperformed the Zacks categorized Engineering/R&D Services industry. However, the company reported mixed first-quarter fiscal 2017 results. Quarterly earnings of $0.68 surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.63, but revenues of $2.5 billion fell short of $1.6 billion estimate. Market friendly policies of Donald Trump would likely boost infrastructure spending and hence raise demand for Jacobs’ construction services. Notably, Jacobs is poised to strengthen its performance by streamlining operations, reducing costs and managing working capital more efficiently. However, on the flip side, macroeconomic headwinds, such as strengthening of the U.S. dollar, stiff industry rivalry and weakness in the global commodity & energy markets, might continue to hurt its revenues and earnings performance."

Mgmt. maintained its F2017 EPS guide of $3.00-3.30, with additional bookings (higher margin) required to hit the upper end.
