What are Wall Street analysts saying about Monolithic Power Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Monolithic Power Systems stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We hosted CFO, Mr. an NDR in Mid-Atlantic last week. While not immune to the broad macro headwinds affecting the entire semiconductor sector, including U.S./ China tariffs, a slowdown in the Chinese economy and inventory digestion in the cloud data center market, Mr. Blegen made a strong and convincing case that MPWR would continue to grow significantly faster than the analog market due to market share gains, the ramp of new products/design wins and co-development projects with tier-one customers. While revenue for the overall analog segment is likely to decline by up to 5% Y/Y in 2019, we believe MPWR should grow by ~7-10% Y/Y. Further, we believe 2019 Street estimates for MPWR have more upside rather than downside risk. $145 PT ." (3/4/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Monolithic designs, develops and markets high-performance power solutions. Intensifying competition from peers and lack of geographic diversity in terms of end-customers are headwinds. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, the company is benefiting from robust demand in high-end consumer markets, including the likes of IoT based products, lighting and home appliances. The company’s strategic business mix in diversified markets is also a positive. Further, investments in high-growth fields like automotive, industrial, server and communications are anticipated to drive growth." (2/6/2019)
