What are Wall Street analysts saying about Infinera stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Infinera stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Infinera provides Digital Optical Networking systems to telecommunications carriers, cable operators and other service providers worldwide. Infinera's large-scale photonic integrated circuit incorporates hundred Gigabits per second of transmit and receive capacity and the functionality of more than sixty discrete optical components into a pair of indium phosphide chips. Infinera's DTN system and PIC technology are designed to provide optical networks that provide operating simplicity, enhanced revenue generation, faster time-to-service and capital cost savings. " (12/8/2018)
  • 2. William Blair analysts commented, "We believe there are three factors driving concern with investors, including: 1) pricing pressure, 2) deceleration of cable expected in second half of 2018, and 3) potential consolidation of European customer base. We believe the sell-off today is overdone and recommend that investors take advantage. We believe the valuation remains attractive at 1.5 times 2019 EV/sales, given above-market growth rate, the new product cycle ramp-up, and margin expansion opportunity . Shares trade below their three- year forward EV/sales average of 1.8 times." (5/10/2018)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We view INFN as a highly focused company in a promising segment within broader challenged networking industry experiencing disruption. INFN has es- tablished itself as a global industry leader in two of the three markets in which it competes. The company has a successful, but inconsistent track record in both sales and product development of optical systems, often experiencing strong product cycles around customer wins and innovation cycles, including its current market position in 1Q18. While much of the broad telecom industry is experiencing flat to declining spending, optical transport is increasingly garner- ing increased wallet share among service providers (SPs) as well as hyperscale cloud builders." (4/16/2018)
  • 4. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We are resuming coverage of INFN with a Buy rating and a 12-month target of $13.00. In our view, INFN has successfully navigated the challenges posed by an aging product portfolio and lower customer capex spend, and now has all of the pieces to begin driving sustainable long-term revenue growth. Demand for the firm’s refreshed product portfolio is being well received thus far, with 1/3 of the company’s market covered by the two platforms. The remainder of products should begin rolling out during 1HFY into the service provider market." (3/21/2018)
