  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe demand for Microsoft’s (MSFT: NR) 100G CWDM4 module will be lower than expected in Q3, seriously impacting AAOI, which has MSFT as its second largest customer. Gross margins will continue to be pressured by the shift in product mix toward 100G CWDM4 modules in the second half of the year and pricing pressures for the 100G optical module. Our research suggests Intel (INTC: Sell) has solved its yield issues and is now ready to ramp its capac- ity in Q3. This will likely increase competition in the CWDM4 market in the sec- ond half of this year. We reiterate our Sell rating and $30 price target. We continue to be wary of AAOI’s gross margins and revenue growth sustaina- bility, despite possible revenue benefits from strong Facebook (FB: NR) de- mand growth." (7/11/2018)
