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 is optimistic about expanding partnerships with firms like Nutanix and Ericsson as this will give it competitive advantage over alternative offerings. The company is well positioned to gain incremental market share as enterprise customers aim to upgrade their networks. It is in the early stages of ramping several important innovations, such as Contrail Enterprise Multicloud and the SPC3 line cards for its high end SRX firewall. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past three months on an average. However, uncertain global macro environment and anticipation of potentially weak investment patterns among customers remain major headwinds for Juniper. The company faces stiff competition in each of its served markets, which has traditionally spearheaded innovation, charging high prices for its premium branded products. Juniper is exposed to stringent budget activities of the U.S. government, which adversely affect its fundamentals." (1/17/2019) 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We expect JNPR to meet or exceed 3Q18 guidance on a surge in Verizon (VZ: NR) capi- tal spending on its metro upgrade program but we see consensus estimates for 4Q18 and FY19 as too aggressive. We expect JNPR to continue to see headwinds and declin- ing YoY sales in service provider routing outside of VZ and a resumption of YoY routing sales growth in its cloud segment to net-out to flattish routing sales and declining gross margins in its largest and most profitable product line. Modest (low – to mid- single digit%) YoY growth in switching, security, and services could enable JNPR to eek out very low single digit YoY topline growth, but our +1% FY19 revenues estimates are ~2% lower than consensus. Further, we expect continued pricing and top line pressure to drive gross margin weakness and earnings below consensus over 4Q18 through FY19."
