Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Jacobs Engineering Group stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the last three months, Jacobs’ shares have outperformed the industry. The company is poised to grow on the back of robust acquisitions and strategic restructuring moves. For instance, the company recently inked a $2.85-billion deal to acquire CH2M, in a bid to become a $15-billion global solutions provider, moving ahead. Moreover, we perceive that increased infrastructure spending in the United States and strong demand for major emerging economies like China would likely prove beneficial to the company going forward. The company is also poised to grow on the back of lucrative business contracts and is well focused in maximizing shareholders’ value." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "JEC reported F1Q17 EPS of $0.68, ahead of our $0.55 estimate and consensus of $0.63. Mgmt. maintained its F2017 EPS guide of $3.00-3.30, with additional bookings (higher margin) required to hit the upper end. While revenues remained down YoY and backlogs stepped back QoQ, JEC's mix continues to improve as it transitions toward profitable growth. Maintain Hold." (2/9/2017)
