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 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 plans to bring in-house more of the assembly and test operations that are currently outsourced, which will ultimately improve gross margin. The heightened capital expenditures also reflect three new buildings that Microchip is constructing in Arizona, India and Germany. These, in turn, will help in reducing cost in the long-haul. However, given its extensive geographical foothold the company is continuously adversely impacted by exchange rate volatility while competition remains headwind." (6/6/2018)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We update our model to account for last week’s Microsemi (MSCC: NR) acqui- sition, which adds $170 million in sales at the mid-point in the June quarter, and $0.04 in non-GAAP EPS. Management’s view for the September quarter is an additional $0.15 in non-GAAP EPS and for annualized $0.75 in non-GAAP EPS accretion in the first year after the close." (6/6/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Yesterday MCHP hosted its annual investor day. With end markets strong, limited risk of double ordering, and continued progress on its analog attach strategy, much of the discussion revolved around its bid for Microsemi. We believe that the major reason for the acquisition is the expansion of customers and end markets (while remaining accretive from day one). While the deal will be primarily funded with debt (driving net debt/EBITDA to 4.7x) we believe that MCHP will be quick to delever. Furthermore we estimate $300M in synergies, non-GAAP accretion of $1.75 over the next few years, and earnings power of ~$8 per share. Reiterate Strong Buy." (3/2/2018)
