    @That guy: In regard to your response to Esam under Robert's post 2 days ago, the lack of inflow of contracts for the recent quarter doesn't really mean anything. Since KTOS is on the accrual basis of accounting, their revenue is recognized when their products ship to their buyers. Total backlog for KTOS was $892.9 million at the end of the 1st quarter of 2021. Backlog is the total sale value of all received customer orders that have not yet been shipped, meaning they're still filling orders worth $892.9 million that haven't been shipped yet and will be recorded as revenue when they do ship. The average revenue of their last 4 quarters is $193.25 million. Based on that average, the $892.9 million backlog represents approximately 4.62 quarters worth of revenue (more than a year's worth). These numbers ignore any contracts that were made during the 2nd quarter. I guess we'll all find out for sure on August 3rd but your guarantee that their earnings will flop sounds more like a lame attempt to drive the price down on Yahoo message board. "Desperation is a stinky cologne."

    Ktos will be over $40 by year end and since Pentagon is doubling defense budget some contracts will come to KTOS in joint future projects and it is a good small targeted company to be bought by the big few.

    I don't think the Air Force can afford any more F-35 type planes, drones and unmanned are the future Kratos will get there share.

    Sadly barring world peace, KTOS isn’t going anywhere.

    Pun intended, this stock is going to be a rocket in the next year or two. Which is why I have leaps. But this could also take off without warning.

    They are making state of the art drones and selling them at a very good price building an economic story compared to other airborne alternatives. With the low market cap I would not be surprised to see a potential merger or strategic buy out.

    CNBC just did a pretty extensive segment on Cathy Wood's purchase of additional Kratos shares. They also hinted buyout rumors and even went into detail about the military turning to this technology. Very positive.
