- 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "XCRA reported a F2Q17 (Apr) beat and provided robust F3Q17 (Apr) guidance on broad-based strength across both STS and EMS segments. Mgmt is seeing a recovery in its core markets, meanwhile it is capitalizing on prior investments as XCRA has started to generate incremental sales in Diamondx for FPD driver IC, MEMS/Sensor Test Cell and contactor. While the InCarrier WLCSP product is still waiting its first order, we are encouraged by XCRA's other market initiatives and are incrementally more positive on its growth and profitability.

Analysts' Consensus Rating for Xcerra Corporation (NASDAQ:XCRA) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
