What are Wall Street analysts saying about Micron Technology stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Micron Technology stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Micron reported weak Q2 results, hurt by higher-than-expected decline in DRAM and NAND pricing. Seasonality, soft smartphone and enterprise server sales, inventory adjustments with key customers, pause in datacenter hardware spending and Intel’s CPU shortages adversely impacted the company’s performance. Notably, shares have underperformed the S&P 500 composite in the past year. Nevertheless, strong growth in managed NAND products is boosting revenue growth of Micron’s Mobile Business Unit. Further, to tackle lower DRAM demand among customers, the company is idling 5% of its DRAM wafer starts and cutting down on capital expenditure. Moreover, Micron expects revival of growth in the second half of 2019 as it anticipates memory demand to improve owing to normalization in most customer inventories by mid-year. Introduction of server processors that support higher memory densities are likely to fuel demand for its solutions." (3/22/2019) 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Micron posted solid qrt., but guided lower given the unfavorable pricing environment. Despite a 21% drop in revenue Y/Y, inventory increased significantly with days of inv. rising from 107 to 134. Despite NAND and DRAM pricing being softer than expected in 1H19, MU expects a sharp snapback in 2H19, particularly in DRAM. We are encouraged by MU’s decision to cut NAND and DRAM output by 5% in FY19. However, we remain on the sidelines as we believe the recent run-up in the shares is already discounting a significant snapback in 2H19." (3/21/2019) 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We are reducing our earnings estimates for Micron ahead of Wednesday’s February quarter earnings report. Market conditions for both DRAM and NAND remain challenging with current data center demand trends murky. Micron, as a memory cycle play, is quite interesting to us from a risk/reward perspective for investors with an eye for a 2020 industry recovery as supply/demand trends reverse positively. In terms of management posture on the Wednesday call, we see them remaining steadfast on the power of the new Micron financial model and to remain committed to being active in share buybacks and return over 50% of FCF to investors over the next several quarters."
