Proactive Investors - A list of potential new contracts highlighted by BAE Systems (LON:BAES) over the past two weeks has prompted JP Morgan to raise its price target to 1,500p and keep its ‘overweight’ stance.

“We believe there is now a long list of credible opportunities which are not in consensus estimates, “added the broker.

Shares were flat at 1,344p.
