What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lumentum stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lumentum stock:
  • 1. 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. " (5/10/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe Lumentum’s earnings call supports our belief of strong demand in the telecom market for ROADM and pump lasers. In addition, we think Lumentum’s 3D sensing business increased its diversification as the company added Android clients. We believe Huawei contributed ~$10 million towards 3D sensing revenue. Although iPhone 3D sensing orders declined sequentially from C1Q to C2Q due to seasonality, which led to a q/q decline in 3D sensing revenues for LITE, we expect LITE’s 3D sensing business to rebound strongly in the second half of calendar year 2019. We also expect the iPhone to adopt new 3D sensing solutions with more VCSEL units in a smaller chipset in the 2nd half of 2019." (5/7/2019)
  • 3. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We further reduce our FQ4 revenue ests as a result, with EPS unchanged given the low GMs and losses associated with the unit, and increase our PT to $70 reflecting both the higher margin profile of the remaining datacom chip revenue as well as further indications of both short and medium terms conservatism in 3DS estimates. Key Points The CIG deal was announced in early March at OFC, leading us to modestly increase our $80M reduction in revs and our PT to $64. We make modest additional cuts in revs as a result of the company’s guide but no changes to EPS, despite some positive offset in laser chip revs from a long term supply agreement between LITE and CIG, adding to an already substantial high margin OCLR datacom laser unit we estimate in the $10-15M/Q range."
