UPDATE: Jefferies & Company Downgrades Finisar Corporation to Underperform, Lowers PT
In a report published Friday, Jefferies & Company downgraded its rating on Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR) from Hold to Underperform, and lowered its price target from $14.00 to $7.50.
Jefferies noted, “Our checks and a recent public announcement from Intel suggest that the ultimate commercialization of highly deflationary silicon photonics technology in the data center is likely no longer in doubt – bad news for manufacturers of ‘traditional' MSA-based, manually assembled optical transceivers for data centers such as Finisar. We're downgrading Finisar shares from Hold to Underperform.”
Finisar Corporation closed on Thursday at $15.58.
