Over on CAPS, 247 of the 252 All-Star members who have rated KBR -- some 98% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Drew2142 and Wazzdown, both of whom are ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Last month, Drew2142 brought KBR's fantastic financial position to our community's attention:

Look at how much cash they have. Oh, and how much debt they don't. Something tells me that's probably a good position to be in for the future.

In an earlier pitch from February, Wazzdown constructs a more balanced look at KBR:

KBR still rules in major US Government overseas contracts to build/operate camps. And, they continue to whip once mighty DynCorp's butt on big jobs like LOGCAP. Biggest competitor at moment is PAE, though [Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT)] may be looking to sell off PAE which wasn't in [Lockheed's] range of core competencies anyhow. KBR's major problem, according to credible hall way gossip, is danger of kick backs to foreign governments, and its less than sterling contract execution.
