What are Wall Street analysts saying about KBR stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about KBR stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of KBR have declined in the past year. Earnings estimates for 2019 have also moved south over the past 30 days, reflecting analyst's concern over the company's earnings growth potential. The company faces the risk of cost overruns, as a significant portion of its contracts are fixed-priced in nature. In fact, it is dependent upon major construction contracts, which take longer time to complete. Nonetheless, its diverse business portfolio allows it to combat cyclicality associated with any single market. The company’s Government Services and Technology businesses are experiencing stellar growth courtesy of ongoing growth in KBR’s overseas logistics and mission support programs with higher military exercise activities. KBR’s high backlog level indicates underlying strength. KBR’s raised 2018 EPS guidance given solid performance and a positive outlook across the segment is encouraging." (2/6/2019)
  • 2. 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)
