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 stellar third-quarter results. Also, both top and bottom line increased year over year. However, the company provided not so encouraging forthcoming guidance. Increasing lead time and significant exposure to Asian markets is anticipated to limit gross margin expansion. Unfavorable movement in exchange rates continue to adversely impact the top line of the company and undermine its growth potential to some extent. Microchip has a highly leveraged balance sheet which adds to its woes. Nonetheless, the company is benefiting from robust demand for 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. We believe 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. Microchip also rides on strong demand for microcontroller and analog products, robust product pipeline and excellent semiconductor industry prospects." (2/11/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "MCHP reported strong 2Q19 results driven by growth across all segments. MCHP is doing a good job of integrating Microsemi and forecasts $8 of EPS in FY20. Unsurprisingly, there’s a temporary pause in auto due to the transition to the new emission standards in Europe and softness in China. While uncertainty still exists around the Chinese tariffs, MCHP has reduced MSCC and internal inventory to managed levels. We see growth drivers in Aerospace/Defense, continued synergies from MSCC and de-leveraging. With the stock down 20% YTD, we believe the shares are discounting much of this uncertainty." (11/8/2018)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
