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’s third-quarter earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, both top and bottom line declined year over year. Nonetheless, the company provided promising fourth-quarter revenue guidance. Notably, the company’s Open-Channel Shannon SSDs are being commercially deployed in data centers of Alibaba and another “B-A-T customer,” which is a significant milestone. Silicon Motion is anticipated to benefit from adoption of its enterprise and industrial SSD offerings in the days ahead. However, higher sales of lower margined SSD solutions are likely to weigh on margins. Furthermore, uncertain macroeconomic conditions and imposition of tariff owing to the U.S.-China trade war has kept the company’s OEM customers and NAND flash vendors on tenterhooks for quite some time now, which remains a concern." (11/2/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We think some of weakness is due to a pause ahead of WiFi 6 product launches. Our street low estimates are unchanged. The Company also named a permanent CEO replacing the interim CEO. Maintain our OP and our $17 PT." (8/9/2019)
