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’s quarterly revenues and operating results have shown frequent fluctuations and these are expected to continue, resulting in volatility in stock price. The current restrictions on export to China pose a significant threat to the company’s business, given that majority of its revenues come from overseas. Moreover, Finisar’s ongoing transfer of certain manufacturing operations to low-cost overseas locations is likely to backfire with higher trade tariffs. However, the stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. Growing relevance of the fiber optics market makes the company’s products increasingly important in industries such as high-performance computing, military, medical and consumer electronics. Finisar is also expanding its broad product line of optical subsystems through dedicated R&D activities to meet the increasing customer needs, which augurs well for its long-term growth." (8/20/2018)
  • 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."
