KBR awarded multiple Australian infrastructure services contracts

KBR has been awarded multiple contracts to provide professional services for major Australian infrastructure projects. KBR will provide engineering and design management services to John Holland for the AU$600M Mernda Rail Extension Project in Melbourne, Victoria. Construction is scheduled to commence in the coming months and will take approximately two years to complete, with trains expected to being running in early 2019. KBR was awarded a contract by the Managing Contractor, Doric Contractors, for hydraulic engineering services to upgrade water infrastructure at the HMAS Stirling Navy base in Western Australia as part of the Australian Department of Defence Stage 3A redevelopment project for the site. KBR is providing marine and maritime structural engineering services to the Laing O'Rourke Managing Contractor team responsible for the redevelopment of the HMAS Coonawarra Navy base and Larrakeyah Barracks in the Northern Territory. Revenue associated with the two Australian defense infrastructure projects was booked into E&C backlog in Q3.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Heather Bellini saying Azure is the number two market share vendor in the cloud space, and has grown 100% or more year-over-year eight of the last 10 quarters. 2. Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Buy from Sell at MoffettNathanson. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha citing valuation. 4. KBR (KBR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch with analyst Anna Kaminskaya saying she expects structurally higher defense spending to drive a re-rating in KBR and sees less risk of cost overruns in the E&C business given lower reliance on fixed priced contracts and diversification into smaller sized service projects. 5. Liberty Interactive (QVCA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch with analyst Heather Balsky saying she has increased confidence in a return to positive US sales growth and expects multiple expansion as sales improve.

KBR upgraded to Buy from Neutral on rebranding efforts at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Daniel Scott upgraded KBR to Buy and raised its price target to $21 from $15 saying the new business mix emphasizing government services and technology de-risks the model and warrants a re-rating of the valuation methodology.

Fossil (FOSL) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy saying the company has an opportunity to cut costs and its potential with hybrid watches is being underappreciated. 4. HSBC (HSBC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Bernstein. 5. Leidos (LDOS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Robert Springarn saying he sees further upside for Leidos driven by the IS&GS acquisition from cost synergies, deleveraging, and potential revenue synergies.
