What are Wall Street analysts saying about Micron Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Micron Technology stock:
  • 1. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We are taking the opportunity to adjust our model for the Huawei blacklisting dynamic, which for Micron is a ~13% hit to sales in the near-term. We expect Micron can make some of this hit elsewhere globally over time." (5/24/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Micron is benefiting from strong growth in managed NAND products, which is boosting revenues of its Mobile Business Unit. Moreover, it expects revival of growth in the second half of calendar 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 is likely to fuel demand for its solutions. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, Micron is hurt by significant 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. The tepid guidance for the fiscal third quarter makes us apprehensive about its near-term performance. Shares have underperformed the S&P 500 year to date." (5/21/2019)
  • 3. 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)
