What are analysts saying about NeoPhotonics Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about NeoPhotonics Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NeoPhotonics Corporation is engaged in the design and manufacture of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed communications networks. Products offered by the Company includes high-speed products that enable data transmission at 10Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps, agility products such as ROADMs that dynamically allocate bandwidth to adjust for volatile traffic patterns, and access products that provide high-bandwidth connections to more devices and people over fixed and wireless networks. " (10/11/2017)
  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "While NPTN's 1Q17 guidance is a painful reminder of the volatility and execution issues that attend optical communication companies, NPTN remains well-positioned to benefit from strong global 100G+ optical upgrade cycle. We have reduced our CY17-18 estimates to de-risk our model and our PT to $13, but we continue to see favorable risk-reward and maintain our Outperform rating." (3/15/2017)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "The lack of orders out of China impacts Neo's outlook. The question is for how long. Neo expects orders over the next month or two and likely in the April time frame. Neo expects its business to be heavily back-half weighted, with 2/3 of the year in CY2H. The good news is it expects the yield issues to be fully resolved during the CY2Q quarter, which is dragging results by $6MM/ quarter and costing 200-400BPs to GMs. The costs of the sale of the low speed business should also fall out in CY2Q, helping margins by another 200 BPs. We are disappointed by the China lull but note that Neo, and for that matter the other vendors and their customers the Chinese OEMs, all think there will be strong orders in CY17 and again in CY18." (3/15/2017)
