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. 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. IPG is gradually expanding into new end-markets like advanced applications (3D Printing, Cinema, and micro-materials processing), communications and medical based on robust product portfolio and strength in  intellectual property (IP). However, currency exchange fluctuations, macroeconomic headwinds, exposure to the materials processing markets, customer concentration and geopolitical tension are major headwinds. Further, tariffs and trade associated challenges in China and Europe are hampering company’s growth prospects." (1/2/2019)
  • 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."
