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 continues to intensify its cost-streamlining efforts, with focus on structural changes to help generate lasting efficiency gains. The company believes that standardization of 5G is the cornerstone for digitalization of industries as well as broadband. The stock has also outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. However, Ericsson continues to struggle amid challenging market conditions and all-pervasive demand weakness. Persistent low investments in mobile broadband in certain markets and lower managed services sales have harmed the sales of Networks segment, while lower legacy product sales have hurt IT & Cloud revenues. Further, spectrum crunch has become a major issue in the U.S. telecom industry that has a saturated wireless market." (7/14/2018)

KMB maintained its (ambitious) FY17 org sales guide of flat/up modestly and EPS guide at low-end of $6.20-$6.35 range (Street $6.20)." (10/23/2017)
