Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of CACI International, Inc. (NYSE:CACI) from a hold rating to a strong-buy rating in a report released on Wednesday. The brokerage currently has $163.00 price target on the information technology services provider’s stock.

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. The company further anticipates to significantly benefit from its cost-reduction program and reiterated its earlier guidance for fiscal 2018 on healthy growth dynamics. The company has a large pipeline of new projects and continues to win more deals at regular intervals. Furthermore, having the government as a big client lends stability to the business and moderates fluctuations in revenue. Moreover, government contracts also improve the visibility of future revenue streams. However, macroeconomic challenges, foreign currency volatility and regulatory pressure remain potential headwinds. The company has also underperformed the industry year to date.”
