What are Wall Street analysts saying about IPG Photonics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about IPG Photonics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IPG Photonics reported mixed fourth-quarter results, wherein the top line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but the bottom line missed the same. Moreover, both revenues and earnings decreased year over year. Macroeconomic environment and geopolitical factors reduced demand in China which impacted fourth-quarter revenues. Further, the company provided soft first-quarter guidance owing to foreign exchange currency fluctuations and geopolitical tension. Also, exposure to the materials processing markets and customer concentration are major headwinds. Further, tariffs and trade associated challenges in China and Europe are hampering company’s growth prospects. However, the company has a dominant position in the core material processing market on the back of its expertise in handling fiber lasers, which are more reliable, efficient, robust, compact and easier to operate than conventional lasers."

  • 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We hosted meetings between mid-West investors and IPG. The meetings focused on growth expectations, new products, and the competitive landscape." (5/21/2018)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe guidance may be conservative given healthy demand for systems, high power, and additive manufacturing among other drivers, noting consumer electronics represents less than 10% of IPGP’s total revenue. Even with these positives, we believe IPGP will be range bound given decelerating Y/Y growth expected through Q3 and the fact that IPGP remains well off trough multiples. Our estimates are largely unchanged and our price target remains $235. Investment highlights IPGP reported Q1/18 earnings results of $359.9M in revenues and $1.93 in EPS. Results for the quarter exceeded CG estimates of $332.5M/$1.75, consensus of $346M/$1.79 and guidance of between $330M and $355M in revenues and EPS in the range of $1.62 to $1.87 on stronger than anticipated top line growth and gross margins."
