What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ciena stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ciena stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ciena reported healthy first-quarter fiscal 2020 results wherein both the top and bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The company’s revenues are generated primarily by rising demand for packet-optical transport and switching products, integrated network and service management software in the global market. With best-in-class core optical networking expertise, it has an augmented customer base in high-growth markets. The company has ample growth opportunities in the Asia Pacific, especially India. However, intense competition remains an obstacle as small vendors resort to aggressive pricing to gain market share. The company faces concentration risk as a major portion of its revenues comes from a handful of large global communications service providers. Escalating operating expenses and high debt-levels dent its profitability." (3/31/2020)
  • 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We recently upgraded the shares (The Last Speed/Feed Battle in Coherent Optics? Upgrading to OP on Recent Underperformance, 800G Prospects- 4/15/19) a couple dollars higher in conjunction with a deep dive on emerging 600/800G technologies and post significant underperformance relative to ACIA given market share concerns ande reiterate our OP rating and $42 PT heading into Thursday AM’s report."
