What are Wall Street analysts saying about Semtech stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Semtech stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We hosted investor meetings with Semtech’s CEO, Mohan Maheswaran, in New York and Boston this week. Our meetings focused on SMTC’s three main growth drivers-LoRa, Protection, and Data Center. The meetings also highlighted the positive surprise seen during F4Q18 in the PON business, which helped offset weakness in base station revenue. While management expects the base station market to remain weak through at least F1H19, the PON market continues to look stronger than originally anticipated in FY19. We came away incrementally more positive from these meetings as we believe the growth drivers remain on track and may provide upside to our estimates. We reiterate our Buy rating and $45 price target." (3/23/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Semtech is currently riding on differentiated growth drivers and diversification strategy. Key growth drivers for Semtech are product differentiation, operational flexibility and a specific focus on fast-growing segments and regions. The company’s fiscal third quarter 2018 earnings improved both sequentially and year over year. However, concerns about the company’s exposure to seasonality, a competitive market and foreign exchange risk persist. In the past one-year, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to." (1/30/2018)
  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "We sense growing large customer engagements and expanding application potential are gaining momentum and the attention of hyper scale players. Mgmt has not backed off revenue growth goals for $40-50MM and $80-$100MM this year and next, and the view that if $100MM in sales are attained, growth to $1.0B in another five years is possible. We were pleasantly surprised with mgmt’s comfort such could occur, though note ongoing ecosystem development and use case momentum is needed to bridge both gaps for technology, which is patent protected by SMTC at end points and hubs."
