DraftKings Betting Big on Moving Service Broker In-House

Mobile sports betting operators are moving all their chips into one basket. In this case, those chips are an open service broker platform, and the basket is the in-house technology of SBTech, acquired by DraftKings Inc. ().   

Four-star analyst Jed Kelly of Oppenheimer & Co. covered the stock, detailing the announcement made by the online sports betting company. He wrote that the migration of the platform to SBTech from the Kambi Group () will provide DraftKings with the opportunity to operate new betting services, most notably one called Same Game Parlays (SGP). This form of sports betting has gained in popularity as of late. (See DKNG stock charts on TipRanks) 

Kelly assigned a Buy rating on the stock, and provided a price target of $80. This reflects a potential 66.46% upside from the Friday closing price of $48.06.  

SGPs are anticipated to help increase gaming revenues and their yields, said Kelly. He came to this conclusion after analyzing the transition efforts made by several similar sports betting companies, such as FanDuel (not publicly listed). FanDuel has a more vertically integrated technology ecosystem than DraftKings, and as such higher yields are achieved.  

The analyst was encouraged by the fact that DraftKings has strong user engagement, and that even if SGPs will not be implemented until Q3, its customers are likely to stick around long enough for the new betting options to become operational. He explained that at that point, DKNG can potentially “close the yield gap with its peers,” in turn creating more upside for the stock price in Q4.  

On TipRanks, DKNG has an analyst rating consensus of Strong Buy, based on 16 Buy and 4 Hold ratings. The average analyst DraftKings price target is $69.38, suggesting a possible 12-month upside of 44.36%.

KBR Bags Patriot Missile System Services Contract from NSPA

Science, technology, and engineering solutions provider KBR () has won a services contract for the PATRIOT missile system from the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA). This includes analytical, engineering, technical, programmatic, and logistics services.

The PATRIOT missile system, in use by a number of NATO countries globally, is an advanced surface-to-air guided air and missile defense system.

KBR Government Solutions President Byron Bright said, “We have a long history supporting NSPA and we are proud to continue this trusted relationship.” (See KBR stock chart on TipRanks)

Bright added, “KBR’s expertise in cutting-edge research will assist NSPA in responding to today’s dynamic threat environment in multiple theatres worldwide.”

The contract is for a period of three years with the option of two additional years. The scope of KBR’s deliverables includes systems engineering, program management, modeling and simulation, production, logistics, and deployment, among other services.

Notably, the company has provided advisory and assistance services for the PATRIOT system for over 40 years.

Recently, Cowen & Co. Analyst Gautam Khanna reiterated a Buy rating on the stock and increased the price target to $46 (20.5% upside potential) from $41.

Noting the company’s Q1 performance as in-line, Khanna commented, “Government Services underlying orders were better than optics of the reported book/bill. The stock is apt to grind higher as KBR’s premium growth is recognized by investors.”

Based on 6 Buys and 1 Hold, consensus on the Street is a Strong Buy. The average KBR analyst price target of $44.57 implies 16.8% upside potential. Shares are up 54.5% over the past year.
