Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (NYSE:BAH) stock price has gone nowhere in more than 1-year. I last wrote about Booz in June 2020, and the stock price has been flat since then. The stock price is down (-7%) year-to-date as of this writing. Booz is underperforming the market by a wide margin in 2021 due to overvaluation in 2020 and slower top-line growth. Indeed, consensus FY2022 estimates are lower than FY2021 earnings per share. Investors are also likely concerned about potentially slower spending growth on government services in 2021 and the next few years. However, Booz is a market leader in an industry where relationships, expertise, and experience matter. Booz is a Dividend Challenger, and the dividend is growth at a double-digit rate. The company is not a deal, but Booz is trading at the lowest valuation in over 1-year. I view Booz as a long-term buy.
