What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microchip Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microchip Technology stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microchip develops and manufacturers microcontrollers, memory and analog and interface products for embedded control systems. 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. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. Moreover, the company has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, increasing lead time and significant exposure to Asian markets remain major headwinds. A stretched valuation is also a concern." (8/1/2018)
  • 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)
