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 is expected to gain from the DRAM boom which is here to stay, at least in the near term, as demand remains ahead of supply. However, declining NAND ASP as supply exceeded demand, remains a concern which might partially offset the benefits from improved demand and prices for DRAM products. Nonetheless, we believe growing adoption of SSD from PC manufacturers and data-center operators will soak the extra supply, thereby stabilizing NAND prices. Additionally, we are positive about the company’s strategy of enhancing capabilities through acquisitions which are likely to boost its top-line performance over the long run. Notably, the stock has performed in-line with the industry over the past one year." (5/24/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "With another record quarter and guide (beat revenue and EPS consensus by 5.6% and 11.4%, respectively) in the bag, we think Micron is on track to generate nearly $10 of annualized earnings. Why isn’t the market applying a historical average P/E multiple of 8-10x on this level of earnings? We think the multiple will rise over time as investors come to understand how MU benefits from the secular transition away from PCs and smartphones to high-performance computing applications such as AI, machine learning, cloud/enterprise and autonomous. In these end-markets, capacity is higher, design cycles are longer and more stable and pricing is favorable. Also, we think Micron is poised to benefit from the transition to 3D NAND, which generates a significant cost advantage (30%-35%), and technology limitation in DRAM supply growth." (12/20/2017)
  • 3. Loop Capital analysts commented, "We believe yet another beat and raise by Micron Technology (MU) supports our view that “the sun, the moon, and the stars” continue to remain aligned as MU benefits from the elongated trifecta of the memory cycle – tight supply/demand dynamics, increasing prices, and cost reductions. We expect these favorable dynamics to continue to drive operating leverage in the model with sustained healthy earnings and revenue growth through the second half of calendar year 2017 and into fiscal year 2018."
