Is that upbeat TU going to take QQ to a new high?

Wad - QQ. PE is lower than BA. on Stockopedia. 12m rolling 12.2 vs 16.4

Nice renewal RNS this am will help underpin future revenues

With more emphasis on electronic warfare than hardware it is perhaps not a valid comparison , but even with BAe at ATH it still has a higher yield and lower P/E than QQ.

I note that Zelensky is lobbying Nato for additional weaponry, including long-range missiles and artillery. Looks like additional defence spending is a certainty following the supply of tanks yesterday. Has to be a positive for QQ.

Since the Private Equity(PE) deal - it's down from 380. Just look at the DrMartens share price since Private Equity floated it.Why would PE sell out now at a time like this for defence spending?Another concern must be orders being delayed in the USA from the budget wrangles in their Parliaments.

Thanks Wad. I thought the Q3 trading update earlier this week was pretty solid and the outlook was confident. Surprised to note the underwhelming response in the share price. Same today with the IC recommendation. Can't work out what holding it back. Bit frustrating.

Order announcement today makes me wonder whether management are a bit concerned about the lack lustre share price performance.

Barclays Capital has updated its forecasts and repeated its positive stock recommendation for the defence contractor QinetiQ Group PLC (LSE:QQ.).

It cited recent M&A activity and material tax adjustments for the changes to its numbers.

The bank also repeated its "overweight" recommendation on QinetiQ's stock and has set a share price target of 465 pence.

Currently, the company's shares are valued at 350 pence, up 1.7% on the day, giving it a £2bn market capitalisation.

In a research note, Barclays explained that the changes to its forecasts were due to the completion of QinetiQ's acquisitions of Avantus and Air Affairs, as well as the disposal of its Space division...

https://www.fool.co.uk/2021/10/15/why-did-the-qinetiq-share-price-crash-on-thursday/Why did the QinetiQ share price crash on Thursday?Alan Oscroft | Friday, 15th October, 2021 | More on: QQArrow descending on a graph portraying stock market crash Image source: Getty Images.The QinetiQ (LSE: QQ) share price crashed 43p on Thursday, losing 13% of its value. That made it by far the FTSE 250's biggest loser on the day. It comes on the back of the defence group's Q2 trading update, ahead of interim results due on 11 November.The news release spoke of a "strong underlying operating performance," and an "excellent order intake at £700m, 25% higher than the first half of FY21." But that didn't protect the shares from the latest curse of supply chain problems.The company said: "We are experiencing technical and supply chain issues on a large complex programme, which, if unmitigated, could result in the need for a one-off write down to our short-term guidance." QinetiQ went on to say that it's working towards "mitigating this risk to less than £15m."For a company with turnover last year of £1,278m, and a pre-tax profit of £124.7m, that doesn't seem like too big a horror story to me. But these days, any mention of supply chain issues seems almost certain to send shareholders rushing for the exit. So has the reaction been overdone, and does it give me a buying opportunity for my Stocks and Shares ISA?QinetiQ share price performanceWell, firstly, I need to put the QinetiQ share price fall into perspective. Essentially, what's happened is that Thursday's drop has wiped out the stock's progress over the previous year. We're now looking at a 12-month rise of just 4%, from the 20% gain the shares were at the day before.Over five years, QinetiQ shares have gained 27%, a bit ahead of the FTSE 250's 22%. Oh, and the FTSE 100 has managed just 2.8% in the same timescale. So we're looking at a higher growth index, and a stock that's above the index average. And that's after Thursday's surprise one-day slump.But back to the trading update. To illustrate how it doesn't seem to be too worried about the current problem, the company told us it's maintaining its medium- to long-term guidance. QinetiQ is still targeting "mid-single digit percentage compound annual organic revenue growth over the next 5 years." And maybe some extra growth should strategic acquisition opportunities come up.Healthy cash situationOperating cash flow was said to be good. And at 30 September, the balance sheet boasted approximately £140m in net cash. Never mind companies struggling to recover from the pandemic crisis under increased debt loads, this is what I like to see.What's the risk? Well, how often have we heard one warning like this and then been hit by further bad news later? Perhaps there are more supply chain problems hiding round the corner, ready to pounce on us as soon as we let down our guard.I think suspicions like that could well explain the scale of Thursday's QinetiQ share price drop. But isn't this a good time to buy, when pessimism is high and shares are low? I think so.
