What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lumentum stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lumentum stock:
  • 1. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe the selloff was an overreaction to the news and believe that Lumentum remains the best positioned name in the 3D sensing space. We believe that 3D sensing momentum is likely to occur throughout the balance of this year and should allow Apple (AAPL: Buy) to create new applications and improve performance in its new iPhones and iPad Pros. We view this as a cata- lyst for Lumentum. We reiterate our buy rating and $80 price target. Lumentum’s telecom business should start to see some ramping from ROADM in China in 3Q18. We believe this will help the company’s China business re- gain momentum and return the segment to sequential growth. We believe the company’s CWDM4 shipments to Amazon (AMZN: NR) should ramp sequen- tially in the third quarter, driving new growth in the telecom business. U.S." (6/5/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lumentum Holdings Inc. is a manufacturer of innovative optical and photonic products. The Company's operating segment consists of Optical Communications and Commercial Lasers. Optical Communications segment portfolio includes products used by Telecom and Datacom nanoelectromechanical systems and traditional as well as cloud/data center service providers. Commercial Lasers segment products serve its customers in markets and applications, such as manufacturing, biotechnology, graphics and imaging, remote sensing and precision machining. Lumentum Holdings Inc. is headquartered in Milpitas, California. " (5/8/2018)
  • 3. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We are assuming coverage of Lumentum Holdings with a Buy rating and an $85 price target. Our investment thesis is primarily driven by the company’s more recent success in 3D sensing modules with Apple. We expect a solid ramp into multiple Android customers in the coming several quarters. We are also highly encouraged by the recent acquisition announcement of Oclaro, and expect benefits well beyond the cost synergies the company has pointed to." (3/21/2018)
