  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "COHU's reported solid 4Q16 results and provided sequentially higher 1Q17 guidance. With Auto being robust while mobility benefiting from increased RF demand, we believe good order momentum will drive further growth beyond this quarter. In addition, LT drivers (WLP Prober, System Level Test, Contactors) remain on track to drive incremental revenues in 2H17, while management plans to raise its target model after cost improvements. Based on the good report and guidance, we are incrementally more positive on the name. At a 2018 ex-cash P/E (w/SC) of 11.4x (using after-hours price), the stock does not look expensive, but we prefer to see more confirmation of sustained growth before getting aggressive.
