What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microchip Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microchip Technology stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microchip reported develops and manufacturers microcontrollers, memory and analog and interface products. The company is benefiting from robust demand for 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. We believe that Microchip's expanding product portfolio driven by new launches will continue to expand customer base. Additionally, the company expanded collaboration with Amazon Web services to support AWS offerings as well as develop secure cloud system. The company also completed the acquisition of Microsemi. Microchip is well poised to capitalize on Microsemi’s growth catalysts. Apart from a robust portfolio, the buyout is likely to expand Microchip’s total addressable markets. However, increasing lead time and significant exposure to Asian markets remain major headwinds. Notably, Microchip stock has reported a wider loss in its value compared with the industry's decline in the past year." (10/9/2018)
  • 2. Cfra analysts commented, "Sales are likely to increase 48% in FY 19 (Mar.) and 11% in FY 20, reflecting the acquisition of 14% increase in FY 18. MCHP is gaining share within most microcontroller categories, driven by new product momentum. Orders are likely to trend upwards over time, but there is limited visibility given demand uncertainty in China." (9/19/2018)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We rate MCHP as a Buy with a $125 price target and would be opportunistic on potential near-term price pressure." (8/12/2018)
