What are Wall Street analysts saying about Viavi Solutions stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Viavi Solutions stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Viavi boasts a comprehensive product portfolio that offers end-to-end network visibility and analytics that optimize complex physical and virtual networks. Its products are well positioned to meet the evolving industry trends, given its technology prowess, product depth and wide customer base. Viavi pursues a holistic growth model with strategic acquisitions and focused organic improvement plans. Demand for sophisticated anti-counterfeiting features, optical filters and sensors offer lucrative growth opportunities. However, seasonality patterns and exposure to foreign currency fluctuations remain headwinds. Continued Sino-U.S. trade hostilities have hurt the supply-chain management of Viavi as most of the manufacturing partners are located in China, denting its profitability. Soft growth outlook for the 3D sensing business remains another concern." (9/16/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We expect the 5G testing business to maintain its growth engines as more countries deploy 5G networks in 2020. We believe Viavi will continue to benefit from the 5G equipment installation stage as the company can sell system testing products and field testing services." (8/16/2019)
