Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Maxwell Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Maxwell Technologies aims at optimizing energy storage portfolio to transition its business to higher growth opportunities in a large and growing addressable market worth $1.4 billion, by 2022. Its automotive business, which has historically contributed a modest, but consistent revenue stream to the company, has the largest growth potential according to management. However, in recent times, some of Maxwell’s China-based customers have asked for longer payment terms that indicate a tightening of cash leaving the country. Also, a major challenge for Maxwell is its dependence on a limited number of customers and vertical markets, which may experience slower rates of growth when there are changes in government policies and subsidy programs. Its shares also underperformed its industry in a year's time." (10/9/2018)
