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 mixed fourth-quarter 2018 results, wherein the bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate but the top line missed the same. Risks related with geopolitical uncertainty and anticipation of potentially weak investment patterns among customers remain major headwinds. Soft demand within the cloud vertical due to slower-than-expected pace of deployment by customers hinders top-line growth. 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. However, the stock has outperformed the industry in the past year on average. Juniper believes the 400 gig upgrade cycle, 5G deployment and enterprise multicloud initiatives hold huge opportunities where it is well-positioned to benefit over the next several years." (2/4/2019) 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."
