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’s product launches, cost reduction initiatives and diligent execution of operational plans remains encouraging. 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. 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 remain a drag on results due to the loss of $30 million quarterly contribution by the mobile security platform. Stiff competition from existing industry players remain another challenge for the company." (7/17/2018)
  • 2. 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)
