What are Wall Street analysts saying about Juniper Networks stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Juniper Networks stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Juniper reported relatively modest second-quarter 2018 results on the back of a solid performance from the cloud vertical and growth in enterprise business. The company is set to capitalize on the growing demand for data center virtualization, cloud computing and optical convergence. Juniper is expected to benefit from the higher spending pattern among carriers to upgrade their networks to support the incremental growth in data traffic. Management remains confident to return to a healthy growth trajectory by the end of the year. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past year on an average. Considering Juniper’s broad exposure to the service provider market, the ongoing consolidations could increase uncertainties and restrict its revenue growth over the long term. The security business may also remain a drag on results due to the loss of about $30 million quarterly contribution by the mobile security platform." (8/1/2018) 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We ex- pect the company to report results that are slightly better than our ($73.0 million & ($0.20)) expectations. We believe strong orders from both Huawei and Ciena (CIEN: Neutral) (a combined 10-15% QoQ growth) will lead to the company giving in-line or slightly stronger Q3 guidance than our ($82.3 million & ($0.15)) forecasts. Based on our research, we believe China Mobile (CHL: NR) will start deploying 15K 100G OTN modules in China telecos demand for the 100G module should trend up in the 2nd half of this year. These would be a positive for NeoPhotonics’ high-end coherent module business, and lead to strong volume growth in 2H18." (7/28/2018) 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We are adjusting our estimates lower for FQ1 and reviewing thoughts in front of the FQ4 print. We continue to be mixed to negative regarding Juniper’s competitive position but valuation is modest and investor sentiment is low. We view tax reform as a positive and Cloud exposure as a wild card for Juniper in 2018." (1/23/2018) Who are some of Juniper Networks' key competitors?
