What are Wall Street analysts saying about Smart Global stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Smart Global stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Smart Global Holdings Inc. is a designer, manufacturer and supplier of electronic subsystems to OEMs. It engaged in the computer, industrial, networking, telecommunications, aerospace and defense markets. The company operates primarily in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America. Smart Global Holdings Inc. is headquartered in Newark, California. " (3/13/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We downgrade Strong Buy. We had anticipated that the local content rules would increase to 60% in CY19 from 50% driving overall unit growth. However, several of SGH’s largest smartphone customers (Samsung, LG) have pushed out memory purchases because of declining memory prices and the fact they overbought in the C1H18 when there were memory shortages. As a result, local content rules will remain at 50% throughout CY19 and consequently we forecast Brazil (51% of sales) to decline 20-25% in FY19. Moreover, the Brazil segment operated at the corporate gross margin, so a revenue mix shift will cause the margin to decline to 18-19% (vs. 21-23%). Given the lack of mobile growth and a steep cut to estimates, we move to the sidelines until local content rules increase to 60% and margins stabilize." (1/9/2019)
