What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acacia Communications stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acacia Communications stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acacia Communications, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures and markets communication equipments. The Company offers coherent optical interconnect products for cloud infrastructure operators and content and communication service providers. It operates primarily in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific region. Acacia Communications, Inc. is headquartered in Maynard, Massachusetts. " (8/8/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We should have acted more aggressively on our concerns, as Acacia’s 4Q’17 results came in well below our low-on-the-Street forecast. We have three primary concerns: 1) Acacia’s customers in Telecom are not performing well with weak results at Adva, ZTE and Coriant. 2) While we expect China to recover, which should help the optical names, we are concerned ZTE share loss to Huawei could diminish Acacia’s participation, 3) risk to ZTE increasingly moving to building their own DCOs from discrete components. The lack of visibility in the DCI market is also hampering our conviction. Cisco/Verizon demand is likely the only real bright spot. We have long believed Acacia has the most advanced DSP , but think the move to 400G/600G is likely a 2019 into 2020 event, which may be a long wait for investors." (2/23/2018)
  • 3. William Blair analysts commented, "We believe the company could see upside to revenue in the fourth quarter come from China, as excess inventory reserves are nearly depleted and key China customers return to satisfy continued telecom customer demand—similar to what occurred to Oclaro (OCLR $6.90), which saw 20% sequential growth from China in the December quarter ."
