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 CORP. is a provider of fiber optic subsystems and network test and monitoring systems which enable high-speed data communications over local area networks, or LANs, storage area networks, or SANs, and metropolitan access networks, or MANs. They are focused on the application of digital fiber optics to provide aline of high-performance, reliable, value-added optical subsystems for data networking and storage equipment manufacturers. " (6/20/2018)
  • 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."
