What are Wall Street analysts saying about Semtech stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Semtech stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Semtech shares have outperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. The company’s strong performance in the industrial and communications markets continues to drive its top-line growth. Additionally, the company's product differentiation, operational flexibility and a specific focus on fast-growing segments and regions continue to be its key growth drivers, which is a positive. However, Semtech continues to be impacted by mounting competition in the semiconductor space. The resultant pricing pressure continues to impact the company’s margins and profitability. Moreover, the seasonality in the consumer segment is a matter of concern. Further, risk of foreign exchange fluctuations remains a headwind for the company." (2/1/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "With strong contributions YTD in 2018 from all of its growth segments, including LoRa transceivers, data center CDRs and protection devices, and better than expected sales of its PON and base station solutions, SMTC shares are up 74.7% YTD vs. 9.9% for the S&P500 Index. SMTC shares closed $59.75, only $0.25 from our recently raised PT of $60. SMTC shares currently trade at an enterprise value of 5.5X expected CY19 sales and at a 22.5x P/E multiple of expected CY19 NG EPS. SMTC now trades at a premium to many of its analog/mixed- signal peers and near valuation levels at which peer IDTI may be acquired according to reports from Nikkei Asian Review. At current valuation levels, we see the risk/reward profile as more balanced. Accordingly, we downgrade the shares to Hold from Buy." (9/4/2018)
