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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Monolithic reported modest first quarter results, where in the bottom line matched the Zacks Consensus Estimate and the top line marginally surpassed the same. The company also provided a tepid forthcoming revenue guidance. . Intensifying competition from peers and lack of geographic diversity in terms of end-customers are headwinds. Shares of the company have also underperformed the industry in the past year. However, the company’s strategic business mix in diversified markets is also a positive. Higher dollar content in new servers based on Purley platform is expected to drive top-line growth." (5/8/2019) 2. 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) Has Monolithic Power Systems been receiving favorable news coverage?
