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 improving execution are encouraging. Its expansion into the SDN segment is expected to strengthen its position in the networking space. Juniper is set to capitalize on the growing demand for data center virtualization, cloud computing and mobile traffic packet/optical convergence. Technological partnerships will help Juniper to enhance its reach and expand the customer base. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the last three months. Juniper faces stiff competition in each of its served markets especially from industry leader Cisco Systems. 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. Juniper is also not doing well for the past few quarters, due to lower-than-expected demand for non-Junos-based security products." (4/3/2018)
- 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)
- 3. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe Juniper will meet our 2Q:2017 revenue estimate of $1.294 billion (Street is at $1.284 billion) and slightly beat our EPS projection of $0.55 (Street is at $0.54). Our 2Q:2017 sales forecast represents a 6% QoQ increase and weaker than the five-year average rise of 9%." (7/20/2017)
