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 Corp develops and manufactures fiber & diode lasers, fiber amplifiers and transceivers that are used for diverse applications, like materials processing, advanced applications, communications and medical. The company is benefiting from strong adoption of fiber lasers over conventional lasers as well as non-laser cutting and welding equipment. Moreover, secular transition to high powered products and increased electric vehicle battery production primarily drive the increased adoption of the high powered lasers. The company is gaining in China, Europe, North America and Japan. Further, its vertically integrated business model is helping IPG keep costs down. Acquisitions like Menara Networks and ILT have helped portfolio expansion. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, volatility faced by materials processing markets, customer concentration and significant China exposure remain major headwinds." (7/3/2018)
  • 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."
