What are analysts saying about Synopsys stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Synopsys stock:

  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "Synopsys reported a solid quarter raising its full year guidance and generating 26.9% operating margins (highest margin profile since July 2009). In addition, the top line suggests 7%+ growth for the full year which should sustain double digit EPS growth' Synopsys reported upside to both the top and bottom line and generated operating margins of 26.9% which was the highest level since Jul-09 (over 7 years ago). While the full year numbers were only slightly modified (+$10M to both the low-end and highend) we think the margin profiles showcased the long-term potential for Synopsys. As the company continues to see revenues grow over the next several years, margins should expand in lock-step after digesting a set of acquisitions (Coverity then Cigital/Codiscope). With fundamentals continuing to improve we also highlight a solid cash balance sheet that can be utilized for continued share repurchases and strategic acquisitions as well. Net Net: the long-term potential for Synopsys continues to improve and we raise our price target to $77 (from $66)." (2/16/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Synopsys is a vendor of electronic design automation (EDA) software to the semiconductor and electronics industries. Synopsys’ price has outperformed the broader market on a year-to-date basis, mainly backed by impressive fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 results, which beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. We believe the company’s recent product launches, acquisitions and deal wins will boost results, going ahead. Moreover, unique intellectual properties and global support provided by the company will likely drive its forthcoming results. Additionally, the acquisition of Cigital and Codiscope will enable Synopsys to offer a comprehensive software security signoff solution to its customers. However, Competition from peers, a challenging technology spending environment and uncertainty regarding the exact time of realizing acquisition synergies keep us cautious." (12/5/2016)
