What are analysts saying about Aspen Aerogels stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aspen Aerogels stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aspen Aerogels, Inc. is an energy technology company that designs, develops and manufactures aerogel insulation used primarily in large-scale energy infrastructure facilities. The Company offers insulation for high temperature steam pipes, vessels, and equipment. Aspen serves petrochemical, refinery, industrial, and power generation sectors. It manufactures Cryogel (R), Pyrogel (R) and Spaceloft (R) products. Aspen Aerogels, Inc. is headquartered in Northborough, Massachusetts. " (10/9/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Overall, we view 2017 as somewhat of a transitional year for ASPN while project-oriented revenues, downstream energy and petrochem remain soft, offsetting what's been scaling revenues in the core/non-project business. Looking to the disappointing guidance, we believe ASPN could be establishing an effective trough before expanding revenues through adjacencies as the year progresses. Further, we see guidance as conservative with some upside opportunity, which should lead to a healthy launch point into 2018." (2/24/2017)
