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 plans to open its second Bulgarian International Business Exchange (IBX) data center — SO2 — in Sofia. This will enable the company to easily penetrate into the Balkan market, with convenient access to the EU, Turkey and the Caucasus. Further, amid higher demand from cloud users, Equinix’s commitment to expand its IBX platform is commendable. However, we are concerned about the company’s growing debt burden, which will adversely affect the operating results as interest expense would go up. Also, consolidation in the telecommunications industry will likely result in low demand for colocation space, hindering the company’s growth. Also, shares of Equinix have underperformed the real estate market over the past six months." (10/25/2018) 2.
