Rosenblatt Securities analyst Hans Mosesmann maintained a Hold rating on Inphi Corp (IPHI) today. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $60.24, close to its 52-week high of $63.18.
“We like the setup over time to the Cisco/Acacia dynamic. IPHI shares have powered up ~25% in the last 3 months and now may incorporate much of the cloud momentum, thus, we remain neutral on the shares. However, we do believe management has proven convincingly that the company can grow at target CAGR rates even without Huawei. Earnings Recap Inphi reported 2Q19 sales of $86.3 million, up 4.9% q/q, above our $84.3 million estimate (consensus of $84.4 million), driven by growth of products inside the data center (specifically the PAM4 DSP , 50/100/200/400G PAM4 platform interconnect family, and DSP TiA platform solutions) and between the data center (specifically COLORZ solutions) offset by restrictions imposed on Chinese long haul and metro customers.”
According to TipRanks.com, Mosesmann is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 13.1% and a 59.8% success rate. Mosesmann covers the Consumer Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Intel Corporation, Texas Instruments, and Lattice Semicon.
The word on The Street in general, suggests a Moderate Buy analyst consensus rating for Inphi Corp with a $57 average price target.
