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, "Leveraging its sound engineering experience and technical knowhow, Finisar aims to maintain a leading position in the optical subsystems and components industry through the acquisition of complementary businesses. The company is also expanding its broad product line of optical subsystems through dedicated R&D activities to meet the evolving customer needs. Finisar expects to witness strong demand for ROADMs on a global basis with India and China beginning to deploy them in large volumes. For the upcoming 5G transition for wireless, it is a leading supplier of the major OEMs of 25 gig and 100 gig data rates for both short and long-reach applications. It is well positioned for the 100 gig to 400 gig transition in the enterprise and data center markets. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past year. The current restrictions on export to China remain headwinds as majority of its revenues comes from overseas markets." (1/3/2019)
  • 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."
