  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ferroglobe PLC provides silicon and specialty metals. It produces silicon metal and silicon and manganese based alloy, serves in the specialty chemical, aluminum, solar, steel and ductile iron foundry industries. Ferroglobe PLC is headquartered in London, the United Kingdom. " (7/25/2018)
  • 2. B. Riley analysts commented, "We expect F3Q results to be in line, but believe F4Q outlook could be slightly below consensus as the latest industry data suggests a mixed demand environment. Although the company is not exposed to the ongoing Chinese slowdown, a number of comm equipment companies such as Infinera (INFN) and Viavi (VIAV) have recently reported that the overall telecom spending environment remains choppy. This demand dynamic is due to several factors, particularly M&A activity, which could slow the ongoing US metro upgrade cycle. While India and the DCI (Datacenter Interconnect) segment continue to be robust growth drivers, we are uncertain if they will be strong enough to meet the Street’s Q/Q revenue growth expectation of +5.9%."
