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. " (10/11/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Last night after the close, Smart Global announced the acquisition of privately-held $85MM, which includes $25MM of performance based targets. The valuation was 10.5x FY’17 EBITDA and 0.5x FY’17 sales. Penguin is a system integrator targeting primarily GPU-based platforms, artificial intelligence, HPC and machine learning applications. Major end markets include social media, oil & gas, and financial services – markets where SGH does not currently participate. We applaud the acquisition as it diversifies the business away from Brazil (new segment + specialty memory = ~50% of sales) but more importantly uniquely positions the company to be the primary system and memory integrator for emerging markets, such as AI and ML. While EBITDA margins are low (5%) through topline growth, EBITDA margins should expand." (6/12/2018)
