What are Wall Street analysts saying about Leidos stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Leidos stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Leidos Holdings has outperformed its industry in the past one year. Increased contract wins from the Pentagon and other U.S. allies owing to its cost-effective defense solutions have been acting as a key catalyst for this defense major. In fact, these contract wins tend to bolster its backlog, thereby boosting its revenue growth prospects. Its strong balance sheet and a steady cash flow position offer it substantial financial flexibility. However, the outcome of any ongoing or future audits is unpredictable, and if future adjustments exceed the company’s estimates the company's profitability may be adversely affected. A comparative analysis of Leidos Holdings historical EV/EBITDA ratio reflects a relatively gloomy picture that might be a cause for investors’ concern." (9/17/2019)
  • 2. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We are encouraged to see some of the higher margin profile within existing programs becoming more evident." (2/22/2019)
