KBR announces $216M cybersecurity task order from DHA

KBR announced that it has been awarded a $216M task order to provide cybersecurity services for the Defense Health Agency, or DHA. The Naval Information Warfare Center, or NIWC, Atlantic awarded the four-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee task order under the SeaPort Next Generation contract. KBR has held a seat on this multiple award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract since earlier this year. It also won a seat on its predecessor contract, SeaPort Enhanced, in 2005. The company has provided cybersecurity services to DHA since the agency's inception. Under this task order, KBR will assist NIWC Atlantic with cybersecurity and risk management framework initiatives and provide support to the DHA Assessment and Authorization Division. DHA works closely with government agencies to deliver medical service to more than 9.4 million active duty personnel and their beneficiaries.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Post Holdings (POST) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying he expects "good" organic sales growth of 2%-3%) and still consider Post's portfolio attractive for cash generation. 2. Philip Morris (PM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Gaurav Jain saying the company's new fiscal 2019 revenue growth guidance ex-currency of 6% is towards the higher end in staples. 3. KBR (KBR) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Gautam Khanna citing abating overhangs, strong sales, an extreme sum-of-the-parts discount, and improving balance sheet flexibility. Khanna raised his price target to $31 from $23 on KBR shares. 4. WW (WW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser citing the improving sentiment toward the company's brands, taglines, and programs garnered from the Davidson Brand Sentiment Analysis as the company has already posted improved recruitment trends. 5.

Buy
KBR initiated with a Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Tobey Sommer initiated KBR with a Buy rating and a price target of $37, saying investors have "inflated" concerns about the company's Energy Solutions segment after its delays on the EPC ammonia project and Ichthys LNG Project in 2016, even though its revenue exposure to the segment has declined to 20% of total in Q1. The analyst contends that KBR's 5-turn discount valuation relative to its government service peers' 14.3-times multiple "belies" its "substantial" mix-shift toward the Government Solutions segment, which has grown its revenue exposure to 72% of total.

Buy
KBR resumed with a Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Michael Feniger resumed coverage of KBR with a Buy rating and a price target of $30. The analyst notes that the company's transformation efforts under CEO Bradle that started 5 years ago, including investment in the government services platform, transitioned from focus on large scale projects, and exit from non-strategic areas, are starting to bear fruit. Feniger believes that KBR's "more disciplined" and "less cyclical" portfolio will yield a more steady growth amid a slowing macro backdrop.

Overweight
Award of Nigeria LNG contract a 'modest disappointment' for KBR, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Sean Eastman noted that press reports indicate Nigeria LNG signed a letter of intent for the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract for Train 7 with a consortia of Saipem, Chiyoda and Daewoo, calling the news a "modest disappointment" for KBR (KBR), whose joint venture with JGC and TechnipFMC (FTI) was also bidding for the EPC contract. However, he does not view this as impacting his EPS estimates or management's guidance, added Eastman, who believes KBR remains well positioned for other outsized LNG opportunities. He keeps an Overweight rating on KBR shares.
