KBR Corp. (KBR - Get Report) is a global engineering and construction contractor focused on energy plants, government projects and mining-infrastructure construction.

It also has been the sole provider of food services, utilities, laundry and other logistics support for U.S. troops in Iraq and other international hot spots.

A Thomson Reuters' analysts survey found five "strong buy," eight "buy" and five "hold" ratings on its shares. Those same analysts have a mean price target of $36.80 on its shares, a 7% premium to the current price.

KBR shares are up 15% this year and 78% over the past year. The company has a $5.3 billion market value.

KBR's fundamentals are strong as the stock has a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 16.9, versus the 17.7 average for the industry group, and it has little long-term debt on its balance sheet.
