What are Wall Street analysts saying about Avnet stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Avnet stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Avnet posted impressive Q3 results driven mainly by strong performance of its Electronics Components segment and benefited from Premier Farnell buyout. The divestment of the TS division has allowed Avnet to focus on high-growth areas such as marketing electronic components and related products in the supply chain. The company intends to use its resources to make investments in embedded solutions, IoT and critical digital platforms as well as expand its footprint in newer markets. Furthermore, acquisitions such as Premier Farnell and Dragon Innovation are likely to bolster Avnet’s portfolio and expand global operations. Nonetheless, a significant portion of Avnet’s revenues comes from the sale of semiconductors, which is a cyclical industry, characterized by changes in technology and manufacturing capacity and subject to significant market upturns and downturns." (5/1/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We would point out that normal seasonality is for qq growth of 0%-4%, so the mid point is below seasonality. OM’s are normally up modestly ~10bp qq, but given guidance suggest down modestly. $390m remains with the company’s buyback, and $70m was repurchased in 3Q. We keep our HOLD rating and lower our PT $2 to $42 PT, 10.5x our FY19E for ~8% appreciation." (4/26/2018)
