What are Wall Street analysts saying about Juniper Networks stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Juniper Networks stock:
  • 1. 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." (10/14/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Juniper continues to benefit from the growing demand for data center virtualization, cloud computing and optical convergence. The company is likely to profit from the higher spending pattern among carriers to upgrade their networks to support the incremental growth in data traffic. Strategic partnerships with various firms will enhance its networking technology ultimately helping service providers to transfer an enormous amount of data through different networks. These partnerships will further help Juniper to enhance its reach and expand the customer base. Management anticipates recording sequential growth in third-quarter 2018 with margin improvement, driven by steady demand patterns, higher volumes and cost structure efficiencies. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past year on an average. Uncertain global macro environment and anticipation of potentially weak investment patterns remain major headwinds for the company." (9/26/2018)
  • 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)
