CACI International (CACI) Rating Lowered to Hold at Zacks Investment Research
Zacks Investment Research cut shares of CACI International (NYSE:CACI) from a buy rating to a hold rating in a report published on Monday morning.
According to Zacks, “CACI International intends to drive operational excellence by intensively focusing on its organic and inorganic growth strategy and strengthening its existing customer relationships while building newer ones. Cyber attacks are creating increased awareness, leading to more demand for cyber solutions. CACI International also remains focused on its strategy to grow in larger markets and leverage mergers and acquisitions to further increase its market share. In addition, the company anticipates to significantly benefit from its cost-reduction program. However, macroeconomic challenges, foreign currency volatility and regulatory pressure remain potential headwinds for CACI International. In addition, the company has to continuously invest in value drivers that act as a hedge against competition. These increase its operating costs and reduce its profitability. The company has underperformed the industry in the last three months.”
