Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FormFactor stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "FormFactor, is the largest probe card manufacturer in the semiconductor industry as well as the largest supplier of probe cards to the SOC probe card market. The company's fourth quarter results beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. Over the last one year, the stock has underperformed te Zacks Electronics-Semiconductor industry. The company has proved agile in dealing with the secular decline in the PC market by increasing focus on the Mobile SoC and Mobile DRAM probe card segments where growth prospects remain very bright. However, nature of the business necessitates long lead times and customer concentration, which should be kept in mind when investing in the shares." (2/17/2017)

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "On Wednesday after the market close, FormFactor reported 4Q16 (Dec) earnings results ahead of our and consensus expectations. The company also delivered guidance for 1Q17 (March) ahead of expectations and also provided an outlook for 2017 that was ahead of our prior estimate. The only aspect that came in below our expectations was on the gross margin line and outlook for 2017. Having said that, we believe that the long-term operating model remains intact and with higher revenues projected for 2017 (and our long-term forecasts), we believe the company is on track for a strong growth year with continued growth projected for future years. We are raising our target price to $15 (from $13) which reflects our new 10x pro-forma EPS of $1.47 on $530 million in annual revenues. We maintain our Buy rating on the shares." (2/9/2017)
