CACI International, Inc. (CACI) Downgraded to “Sell” at Zacks Investment Research
Zacks Investment Research cut shares of CACI International, Inc. (NYSE:CACI) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research note issued to investors on Friday.
According to Zacks, “Macroeconomic challenges, foreign currency volatility and regulatory pressure remain potential headwinds for CACI International. Federal government contracts are also subject to extensive legal and regulatory hurdles and subject to change from time to time. Deviations from the terms laid out by the government may further result in huge penalties or termination. Moreover, CACI International 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 year to date. However, 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. The company beat first-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings on higher revenues.”
