What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microsemi stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microsemi stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microsemi Corporation is an OEM of a broad range of high-reliability and analog/mixed signal integrated circuits. Fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 non-GAAP earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The company's focus on improving product mix, operational efficiency, and consolidation are driving revenues and margins through 2017. Moreover, we have confidence in the company's strategic positioning, strong fundamentals and growth prospects. Microsemi's scope for margin expansion and decent balance sheet are the other positives. However, pockets of weakness related to product transition at medical customers, push-out of some communications spending in China and a softer oil & gas market continue to impact revenues. Year to date, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to." (11/14/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "MSCC reported in-line F4Q17 results and in-line F1Q18 guidance. More importantly, the company exceeded its $400MM FCF target post PMC acquisition close, generating $420MM in FCF in FY17. The company also beat its gross leverage target of 3.0x by the end of FY17, with gross leverage coming in at 2.9x. Further, MSCC achieved record profitability in F4Q17, with NG GM and NG OM both hitting new highs. We feel strongly the company remains on track to hit its 35% NG OM target. Lastly, management expressed confidence in its long-term 6-8% Y/Y organic growth target, driven by several product cycles. Given management’s solid execution on margins, cash flow generation and deleveraging, combined with demonstrable organic revenue growth, we reiterate our Buy rating and $61 price target."
