What are analysts saying about Micron Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Micron Technology stock:

  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "Micron's February quarter results and May quarter guidance reflect continuing strength in memory pricing and the benefits of the Inotera acquisition. February quarter sales were up 58% year/year and the midpoint of May quarter sales guidance implies 86% year/year growth. GAAP gross margin jumped more than 11 percentage points (pp) sequentially, to 36.7% in the February quarter. NonGAAP gross margin is expected to rise 7.5 pp sequentially in the May quarter. Our FY17 GAAP EPS estimate increases to $3.55 from a prior $2.92 and our FY18 GAAP EPS estimate increases to $4.90 from a prior $3.92. We are maintaining our valuation range of $30-35, which we derive using a multiple of approximately 6-7x our FY18 EPS estimate. We are reiterating our Outperform rating on Micron." (3/24/2017)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "Micron reported a strong FebQ, better than its positive preannouncement. MU also guided to a strong MayQ with topline/EPS/GM of $5.2-5.6B/$1.43-1.57/44-48% (consensus at $4.7B/$0.91/37.2%), guiding GMs up ~1000bps q/q (a 10-year high) driving >50% EPS upside to the MayQ consensus. Micron could see a better 2H17 with its 1x (16nm) DRAM and 64L 3D-NAND ramps driving higher topline and better costs. Reiterating our Buy, raising estimates and PT to $35 (prior $30). MU's NAND strength is a positive for WDC as well." (3/24/2017)
  • 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "Raising price target and reiterating Outperform rating on our expectation of continued strong environment in both DRAM and NAND, along with Micron's improving mix, cost structure, and overall execution . We model continued NAND price increases throughout the calendar year (albeit at a declining rate), and flat to up DRAM pricing, which combined with Micron's ongoing improvement in fundamentals suggest an earnings peak is not for this year. Our expectation for continued supply/demand tightness in C2H should result in continued earnings momentum over next several quarters." (3/24/2017)
  • 4. Deutsche Bank AG analysts commented, "Reiterate Buy on favorable supply-demand and solid execution. MU delivered F2Q results that are slightly better than its preliminary estimates. Its guidance for strong revenue growth and profitability in F3Q should ease some concerns that the memory cycle will soon pass its peak. We are particularly impressed with the company's ability to execute on its technology roadmap for both DRAM and NAND, driving solid bit growth and cost improvements. Furthermore, we expect the memory market to remain in shortage throughout 2017, as memory suppliers continue to exhibit disciplined capex behaviors. We reiterate our Buy rating on MU and raise our P/T to $35." (3/24/2017)
  • 5. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "The cat is 'out of the bag' for FQ2 (Feb) but costs are the real story as the #s imply MU finally has its 'house in order' and not just riding the pricing wave. See FQ3 (May) EPS ~$1.00 (again above Street) meaning MU's multiple has compressed 'bigly' since '14 ' nonsensical given that MU was bit constrained and DRAM market dynamics were more cyclical during that time." (3/22/2017)
