What are Wall Street analysts saying about Leidos stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Leidos stock: 1. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We are encouraged to see some of the higher margin profile within existing programs becoming more evident." (2/22/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Increased contract wins for its cost-effective defense solutions from the Pentagon as well as other U.S. allies have been serving as a primary growth driver for Leidos Holdings. In fact, these contract wins tend to bolster the company’s backlog. Moreover, with the current U.S. administration being in favor of increased defense spending, macroeconomic environment in the nation has been boosting the company’s growth prospects. However, Leidos Holdings is susceptible to interest rate risk related to the issuance of debt. A material rise in long-term interest rates is a major risk for capital intensive stocks like Leidos Holdings. With the current U.S. economy being in favor of an increasing interest rate, the credit market might not hugely favor Leidos Holdings. Shares of Leidos Holdings have thus underperformed its industry in the past 12 months." (2/11/2019) Has Leidos been receiving favorable news coverage?
