What are Wall Street analysts saying about Maxar Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Maxar Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Maxar Technologies Ltd. is a communications and information company which provide operational solutions to commercial and government organizations. The Company's commercial space technology brands consist of SSL, MDA, DigitalGlobe and Radiant. SSL is a commercial provider of communications and Earth observation satellites and scientific mission spacecraft for commercial and government markets; MDA provide space robotics, satellite antennas and subsystems, surveillance and intelligence systems, defense and maritime systems and geospatial radar imagery; DigitalGlobe provide high resolution optical satellite imagery and information about our changing planet and Radiant provide geospatial data, analytics, software and services.

  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "Yesterday, the NGA issued a release confirming the transition of the key EnhancedView contract to the NRO, and alongside it an extension of the current agreement by at least one year at a comparable revenue run-rate. Note that the status of Maxar and DigitalGlobe’s ongoing relationship with the US government is one of a number of concerns plaguing the stock. While this news does not alleviate it altogether, the language used by these agencies supports the ongoing and increasing importance of DigitalGlobe’s data. A longer extension of this agreement ahead of the 2020 expiry of the initial agreement we think would prove a potentially significant catalyst for the stock. We continue to rate Maxar a BUY as we believe that an improving cash flow conversion profile and better general growth outlook in the coming years will warrant a re-inflation of its multiple relative to peers."
