    Flir Systems gained $2.78, or 8.1%, to close at $36.93.

    The company’sdisappointing fourth-quarter earnings report was forgotten when it announced that the U.S. Coast Guard awarded it a $50 million contract. Flir will provide marine electronics systems for more than 2,000 Coast Guard vessels for its Scalable Integrated Navigation Systems 2 (SINS-2) program over a five-year period, with the option for extended delivery for an additional five years.

    Even before the news, Imperial Capital’sEd Mally was bullish on the stock’s prospects, who raised his price target on the stock by $2, to $38:

    Although we believe that some may still consider Flir as just a premier provider of very high-end cameras in the bellies of Bell Helicopters or border towers in a lumpy government sector, this 35-year-old company is a global leader in thousands of infrared detector cores and thermography equipment markets and also provides lower priced products to commercial and consumer security customers as well as other customers.

    Flir is up 2% so far this year.
