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, "Corning delivered healthy third-quarter 2018 results driven by sales and profit growth in each of its businesses led by investment in innovation and capacity expansions. The company continues to benefit from strength in Optical Communications, Environmental Technologies and Specialty Materials segments. Solid demand for Gorilla Glass 5 and fiber optic products remain key catalyst as it continues to innovate in the glass substrate industry. Corning’s capability further positions it to better serve the secular increase in demand for LCD panels. In addition, sound balance sheet position has enabled the company to reward shareholders with risk-adjusted returns through healthy dividends and share buybacks. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past six months on an average. However, building a significant position in China under the prevailing economic and political environment is likely to be a challenge for the company." (11/16/2018)
  • 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."
