What are Wall Street analysts saying about Corning stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Corning stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Strong demand for Gorilla Glass 5 and other fiber optic products remain key catalyst as Corning continues to innovate in the glass substrate industry. Corning’s capability positions it to better serve the increase in demand for LCD panels. The company further aims to move forward in the value chain beyond glass and tap the immense potential of the automotive market, while product portfolio strength and moderating price decline bodes well for future growth. Corning is making encouraging progress on focused portfolio objectives, remaining well poised to achieve its Strategy and Capital Allocation Framework goals. Management’s aim to return value to shareholders through regular share repurchases and dividends is encouraging. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past six months on an average. However, the ongoing trade war between the United States and China remain a strong impediment to the company’s top-line growth." (12/13/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to see GLW as one of the only companies in our universe with Y/Y comps dramatically better in 2H18E than 1H18. We estimate revs +14%Y/Y and EPS +26%Y/Y in 2H18E vs. +7%Y/Y and -8%Y/Y in 1H18, which is a trend we see continuing in 1H19E as well. And we see Q3’s report in line with our expectation for that re-acceleration to be driven by specific new capacity ramps across 1) 10.5G Display glass for BOE, 2) Optical fiber and 3) Auto filters."
