  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Earlier today at the 2017 Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) in Los Angeles we met with Lumentum's CEO, Alan Lowe, and VP of Strategy and Corporate Development, Chris Coldren, with discussions focused largely on China demand, ROADM deployments, progress with the QSFP28 and CFP2-ACO, the recently announced partnership with Ciena, and 3D sensing." (3/22/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "China is a bit sluggish, but it's still early. Data Comm is shifting into high gear, but the mix is shifting to shorter reach lower ASPs. Metro Core in US/EMEA is strengthening. China ROADMs may take another quarter or two to kick in. Industrial lasers look ahead of target. Pump Lasers are sold out and are strong indicators of future. And then there is 3D Sensing, which could be a major driver. We see strong legs and breadth to the optical market. Breath deep, repeat after us, "it's only the seasonally slow quarter." We expect demand to strengthen as the year progresses. We expect strengthening Data Comm, strengthening Metro Core, stronger DCI demand, and yes, we expect orders from China to strengthen and ROADM sales to kick in. Oh, and we love 3D Sensing."
