Caci International Receives a Hold from FBR Capital

By Austin Angelo

FBR Capital analyst Christopher Van Horn reiterated a Hold rating on Caci International (NYSE: CACI) on October 28 and set a price target of $94. The company’s shares opened today at $98.25.

Van Horn wrote:

“CACI reported higher results for F1Q17 that benefited from unanticipated material purchases in the quarter. We see this as a one-time event, and our neutral stance on this stock is unchanged. Aside from the quarter, we think that investors are focused on two themes right now: the administration transition and the possibility of a continuing resolution for next year’s budget. To the first point, we believe that spending plans are less likely to change in the first year of a new administration than in the second and third; moreover, a new administration is unlikely to halt ongoing escalation in the global threat environment. To the second point, a CR is possible (given continued partisan friction in Congress) for the coming year. This would hinder growth for certain names, including, we believe, CACI. There are areas of spending (like enterprise IT) that we view as more compelling and likely to outstrip the broader defense environment even in the case of a CR, and CACI does have exposure here. Yet overall, we find that most future growth is priced into the shares at these levels. We reiterate our Market Perform rating and $94 price target.”
