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 provides microcontroller ICs for NAND flash storage devices and specialty RF ICs for mobile devices. Silicon Motion's shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. The company faces macroeconomic risks like political, economic and social instability and certain industry-specific regulations in geographies where the company operates. Intensifying competition in the USB flash drive controller market remains a major headwind. Going forward, dip in smartphones sales might prove to be a drag on the revenues. Nonetheless, the company expects the increase in the availability of 64 layer 3D NAND to bring down high NAND prices, which will eventually improve results. Acquisitions have supplemented the company's growth initiatives. Moreover, rebuilt inventory from company’s NAND flash partners bolstered eMMC controller sales also remains a positive." (6/13/2018)
- 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SIMO posted a solid print as NAND supply is rapidly becoming available and we begin to see signs of NAND pricing softening. 64-layer 3D NAND and 72-layer 3D NAND output is leading to modest NAND price reduction, and we expect NAND supply will continue to grow, creating further price declines and hence higher attach rates for client SSDs. SIMO reiterates 5-10% Y/Y annual growth with bias" towards the upper-end driven by client SSDs, datacenter SSD and stable eMMC. Big picture, we like SIMO’s competitive positon as the leading merchant controller supplier in QLC 3D NAND, growing PCIe and NVMe and position in China." (4/27/2018)
