Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about KBR stock:
  • 1. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We note that Aspire added to revenue and costs in the period (Aspire is the UK project for housing/food service of the UK military). We continue to see the potential for an acceleration in growth from higher government budgets. Going forward, we estimate the company will grow Government Services revenue internally at north of 3%-6% CAGR (excluding acquisitions). The company’s largest contract, LOGCAP (roughly 10% of divisional revenue), is up for re-bid late fall, and we believe the company is well-positioned. In fact, we anticipate some up-sizing" in the current LOGCAP contract between now and the end of the year." (7/30/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "KBR’s diverse business portfolio allows it to combat cyclicality associated with any single market. The company’s Government Services business is experiencing stellar growth and the company remains confident that recent acquisitions will continue to accelerate growth momentum of this business. Moreover, the company is optimistic about backlog growth in 2018 due to the pipeline of opportunities. KBR’s high backlog level also indicates underlying strength. Over the past year, KBR’s shares have outperformed the industry significantly. However, softness in the Hydrocarbons Services segment along with volatility in oil and gas prices may pose threat to the company's growth. Moreover, the long-cycle nature of the contracts, volatility in material & equipment pricing, risk of client loss and stiff competition raise caution." (7/15/2018)
