First entry so am learning. Even though they are winning contracts they can't seem to shake investor sentiments.

The possible reason for such interest in KTOS by CAPS members is there is a lot of speculation on a potential buyout. Also, there has been some evidence of continuous institutional buying.

When Kratos acquired Digital Fusion, it gained a very strong team that does Engineering work for the US ARMY. Companies that play in the Government Sector are more recession resistant than others as they do not depend on consumer spending. R&D work goes on no matter the economy.

Going long on the old WFII requires either brass balls or a clean lack of common sense. I'd like to think that my recommendation comes with a bit of both. WFII has never had an issue presenting itself as an enormous value to investors and even after a nice rise off its lows, its still shows itself as a major value. 1.1 times book valuation, 0.6 times sales and 7.8 times future earnings. Every now and then KTOS is able to meet those expectations and when they do the investors are greatly rewarded, but more often than not they have a hard time keeping to profit expectations. My advice with KTOS has always been that if they are profitable, it will stay above $2 and so it has. With profitability looking solid for 2008 and the government remaining one of their customers, I'll stick around for another gain or beating, whichever comes first.

has broken short-term downtrend, but long term still has work to do - above 20 and 50 day MA with resistance at $3.75 and heavy resistance at $5 - needs to get and stay above 200 day at around $3 - spiked from $6 to $20 in 2003, but then it was $180 in 2000, so best not to judge by past performance :-)
currently 5 star CAPS - has had a few years of declining earnings, but appears to be making the necessary corrections
