What are Wall Street analysts saying about Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ericsson intends to seize business opportunities as operators shift toward 4G deployments and prepare grounds for the 5G revolution. The company is intensifying its cost-streamlining efforts, with focus on structural changes to help generate lasting efficiency gains. It has detected signs of improvement and increased stability in product roadmaps and projects, and plans to invest in R&D to fortify Networks business and stabilize IT & Cloud roadmaps. However, Ericsson’s shares have underperformed the industry in the last three months. The company operates in an extremely competitive environment, which comprises big multinational wireless telecom service providers and newly established companies. It continues to struggle amid challenging market conditions and all-pervasive demand weakness. The ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Brexit referendum may prove to be a spoiler for Ericsson, stalling major investment decisions." (4/9/2018)
