Lockheed wins $8B contract over L3 and CACI, says Citi
Citi analyst Jason Gursky says the U.S. Special Ops Command Friday after the close awarded the Special Operations Forces Global Logistics Support Services contract to incumbent Lockheed Martin (LMT) over L3 Technologies (LLL), CACI (CACI) and potentially others. The $8B contract over multiple years is a positive development for Lockheed's MFC segment and an "incremental negative" for L3, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He believes CACI's bid "was always a long shot given the level of competition." Gursky has Buy ratings on all three names.

Stifel says United Tech deal strategic, not a sign of M&A 'floodgates opening'
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi said one of the only risks he sees to defense stocks' multiples would be a shift in cash deployment strategy from a focus on dividends and buybacks to M&A. However, he views United Technologies' (UTX) planned acquisition of Rockwell Collins (COL) as strategic and largely focused on its desire to regain leverage against Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY) and not indicative of the M&A "floodgates opening" in the defense sector. Other publicly traded companies in the defense space include BAE Systems (BAESY), General Dynamics (GD), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Raytheon (RTN).

Other bidders unlikely to challenge Northrop for Orbital ATK, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi thinks the deal to acquire Orbital ATK (OA) makes sense for Northrop Grumman (NOC) given the complimentary nature of their main business lines. He also thinks other bidders seem unlikely, since he believes Lockheed Martin (LMT) would face anti-trust issues. DeNardi has a Hold rating on Northrop shares.
