AeroVironment, Kratos partner to develop UAS, missile systems capabilities

AeroVironment (AVAV) and Kratos Defense & Security Systems (KTOS) Unmanned Systems Division announced a new strategic relationship to develop and demonstrate highly integrated and operationally effective multi-domain unmanned system solutions for near-peer, denied environments. Kratos and AeroVironment's first collaborative project is designed to demonstrate the ability to launch, communicate with, and control a small, tube-launched loitering aircraft from a larger runway-independent unmanned aircraft. The overall system-of-system effectiveness will be evaluated for its ability to coordinate the effects of the smaller AeroVironment systems, relay useful information back to the Kratos mothership, and either pass information back to a ground control station or act upon that information to modify mission taskings.

Neutral
AeroVironment shares fully valued at current levels, says Piper Jaffray
AeroVironment reported fiscal Q3 results with revenues below and earnings above Street expectations, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen tells investors in a research note. The analyst continues to believe the company's largest growth opportunity is from sales to international governments. He remains bullish on AeroVironment's long-term opportunities but thinks a "lot of this optimism" is currently priced into the stock. Jensen raised his price target for the shares to $78 from $77 and reiterates a Neutral rating on the name. He finds AeroVironment fully valued at current levels.

William Blair starts AeroVironment at Outperform on drone spending growth
William Blair analyst Louie DiPalma last night initiated coverage of AeroVironment with an Outperform rating. According to an analysis by the Center for the Study of the Drone at Bard College, the U.S. Department of Defense requested $8.9B for unmanned systems in the government's fiscal 2019 budget, DiPalma tells investors in a research note. Annual growth for the U.S. fiscal year drone budget allocation accelerated to 20%, with a 14.7% five-year annual growth rate, adds the analyst. He points out that AeroVironment is the industry leader in small unmanned aerial systems for military users. DiPalma sees the shares trading to a range of $82 to $105 over the next 18 months. He expects defense budget drone spending growth to continue to exceed overall defense budget growth by a wide margin.

Kratos Defense results disappoint, tactical opportunity growing, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Ken Herbert said the Q4 results from Kratos Defense were mixed due to timing, but the outlook remains positive. The analyst said the softness reflected delays from the government shutdown, some timing on the receipts of milestone payments, and program delays. Herbert maintained his Buy rating and $20 price target on Kratos Defense shares.
