What are Wall Street analysts saying about Finisar stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Finisar stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Finisar continues to expand its product line of optical subsystems through R&D activities to meet the evolving customer needs. The company believes in low cost and high value-added product manufacturing as a way to enhance revenues. It has low-cost manufacturing facilities in Ipoh, Malaysia and Wuxi, China, which minimizes the cost of production driven by cheap and efficient availability of labor. The company’s revenues are likely to increase manifold with the commercial deployment of 5G in China. Leveraging its sound engineering experience and technical knowhow, Finisar further aims to maintain a leading position in the optical subsystems and components industry. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. The current restrictions on export to China pose significant threat to Finisar’s business as majority of its revenues comes from overseas." (11/13/2018)
  • 2. William Blair analysts commented, "We expect the company to come in roughly in line on revenue with a downward bias to EPS due to ongoing datacom pricing pressure affecting gross margin. The Street is looking for $333 million on revenue (roughly flat sequentially) and $0.23 for EPS; we are in line on revenue and a penny below consensus on EPS. We believe the company could see modest quarter-over-quarter expansion in 3-D sensing (revenue is relatively small to be affected by recent Apple [AAPL $176.21; Not Rated] iPhoneX cuts) offsetting ongoing inventory correction in China (at Huawei and ZTE) and product transition at hyperscale customers (Amazon [AMZN $1,500.25; Outperform] transitioning from 40G to 100G). The biggest risk to Finisar remains gross margins, which could remain pressured until datacom pricing stabilizes, cost reduction products become available, and/or higher-margin products (CFP2-ACO and ROADMs) begin to ship in volume." (3/5/2018)
