What are Wall Street analysts saying about Silicon Motion Technology stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Silicon Motion Technology stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Silicon Motion is a leading developer of microcontroller ICs for NAND flash storage devices and specialty RF ICs for mobile devices. We believe improving supply of 64-layer 3D NAND is bringing down high NAND prices, which is eventually benefiting Silicon Motion. Additionally, as the company’s Open-Channel NVMe SSD controller enters into production, Client SSD Controller sales are anticipated to increase. Also, acquisitions have supplemented the company's growth initiatives. Rebuilt inventory from company’s NAND flash partners bolstered eMMC controller sales also remains a positive. However, the company faces macroeconomic risks in geographies where the company operates. Intensifying competition in the USB flash drive controller market also remains a major headwind. Notably, shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year." (10/8/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy and $60 PT . SIMO issued 3Q revenue guidance below the Street as a large Chinese hypersacaler pushed out an order for Shannon Systems to 4Q. This is a multi-quarter program so we expect the associated revenue with that project to be shifted into 4Q and carry into early 2019. We don’t believe the project size has changed. Separately, NAND pricing has fallen meaningfully leading to a reacceleration in client SSD attach rates and as a result, SIMO has increased its SSD forecast to at least 30% Y/Y growth vs. 20%. With $10 net cash and nearly $4 EPS next year, we are buyers on weakness." (8/1/2018)
