What are Wall Street analysts saying about Equinix stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Equinix stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Equinix recently announced the acquisition of a commercial property in Hamburg in a bid to expand its portfolio in Germany. It plans to transform the building to a carrier-neutral colocation space. Notably, amid higher demand from cloud users, Equinix’s commitment to expand its IBX platform is commendable. Further, a global footprint and solid interconnected ecosystems will enable the company to witness top-line growth in the long term. However, the company’s growing debt burden is expected to affect its operating results as interest expense would go up. Also, consolidation in the telecommunications industry will likely result in low demand for co-location space, hindering the company’s growth. Moreover, shares of Equinix have underperformed the real estate market over the past three months." (1/14/2019) 2.
