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, "Shares of Equinix have underperformed its industry over the past six months. Moreover, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current year funds from operations (FFO) remained unchanged in the past two months. The company’s growing debt burden remains a concern, which will adversely affect the operating results as interest expense would go up. Moreover, the company faces intense competition in the industry. Amid this, aggressive pricing pressure is likely to continue in the upcoming period. Also, consolidation in the telecommunications industry will likely result in low demand for colocation space, hindering the company’s growth. Nonetheless, its diligent IBX expansion strategy will likely fortify its global footprint in the data-center space and bring in additional revenues over the long run." (7/17/2018) 2.
