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 develops and manufactures fiber & diode lasers, fiber amplifiers and transceivers. Currency exchange fluctuations are anticipated to impact the company’s third-quarter quarter performance. IPG’s significant exposure to the materials processing markets, dependency on few customers and substantial China exposure are key negatives. Further, being a vertically integrated company – fixed costs – particularly related to direct labor is significantly high for IPG. This is a major headwind as the company may not be able to manoeuvre this fixed cost in case of a revenue shortfall. Nonetheless, the company is benefiting from strong adoption of fiber lasers over conventional lasers as well as non-laser cutting and welding equipment. Also, dominant position in the core material processing market, vertically integrated business model, industry-leading operating margins and expansion in TAM are key positives." (10/9/2018)
  • 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."
