Canaccord Genuity Keeps Their Buy Rating on DLH Holdings

Canaccord Genuity analyst Kenneth Herbert maintained a Buy rating on DLH Holdings (NASDAQ: DLHC) yesterday and set a price target of $8. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $5.86.

Herbert wrote:

“We believe the Q2/18 results are strong, especially considering the delays in finalization of the FY18 budget, and uncertainty around funding and political support for key programs within HHS and Veterans Affairs. Specifically, the 15% sales growth, as compared to our estimate of 11%, was encouraging (remember guidance has been calling for MSD organic growth across the cycle). Management will host a conference call at 11am ET on May 16. Heading into the call, we will be focused on any updates to the revenue and gross margin outlook, the M&A landscape (we continue to see this as a way to create value considering the success with the Danya acquisition), and the latest on the new business bid pipeline and opportunity set. It appears that management has been successful with capturing higher-margin opportunities, which has been a focus.”

According to TipRanks.com, Herbert is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 12.0% and a 64.0% success rate. Herbert covers the Consumer Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Transdigm Group Inc, CPI Aerostructures, and Spirit AeroSystems.
