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 is benefiting from strength in its Optical Communications, Environmental Technologies and Life Sciences business lines. Strong demand for Gorilla Glass 5 and its fiber optics products is a key catalyst. The company also benefits from sequential decline in LCD glass prices. Strong demand for company’s Gorilla-sized automotive glass business and additional contract wins are positives. Corning recently reached a milestone when its manufacturing facility in Kaiserslautern, Germany, produced its millionth Corning DuraTrap GC gasoline particulate filter for automotive emissions control. Further, penetration into developing regions and product portfolio expansion remain tailwinds. Aggressive share buyback favors bottom line growth. However, weakness in the Display segment remains a headwind. Shares of the company have underperformed the industry in the past year on average." (6/26/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to see near-term adds setting up meaningful 2H18E leverage and reacceleration driven by capacity and margin expansion, with only minor estimate tweaks keeping our FY18E revenue and EPS estimates unchanged at $10.9B (+6%Y/Y) and $1.73 (+8%Y/Y) ahead of consensus $1.69."
