What are analysts saying about Electronics for Imaging stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Electronics for Imaging stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Electronics for Imaging, Inc. designs and markets products that support color and black-and-white printing on a variety of peripheral devices. Its products incorporate hardware and software technologies that transform digital copiers and printers from many leading copier manufacturers into fast, high-quality networked printers. The company's products include stand-alone servers, which are connected to digital copiers and other peripheral devices, and controllers, which are embedded in digital copiers and desktop color laser printers. " (9/7/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We hosted EFII management early last week in NY and came away on the margin more confident of accelerating organic growth in 2017 and 2018. We believe the company's Industrial Inkjet business (~60% of revs) can show stronger growth in the back-half of 2017, benefiting from a pickup in growth in the Reggiani textile printing business and the new emerging corrugated packaging printing opportunity via its disruptive Nozomi platform. The announcement earlier this month that EFII purchased Xerox's FreeFlow Print Server business has effectively de-risked the Fiery digital front end (DFE) business (~26% of revs). We believe conservative Street numbers position EFII to potentially beat on the top line in '17. With EFII shares trading at 15x our '18 est., we believe there is solid value at current levels."
