UPDATE: Stifel Nicolaus Raises PT to $20 on Finisar on Improving Industry Fundamentals


Stifel Nicolaus reiterated its Buy rating on Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR) and raised its price target from $18 to $20.

Stifel Nicolaus noted, "We anticipate 2013 will represent an improving optical communication industry environment relative to 2012 with the expectation: (1) carrier spending trends are poised for improvement (AT&T announcement, Sprint/Softbank, etc.), (2) the ecosystem for 100G is dramatically improved y/y given pricing pressure in 2012, merchant DSP and module vendors have qualified products, and major service providers (VZ and AT&T) discussing 100G deployments in the metro, and (3) investor expectations are low while sell side estimates have been significantly reduced, potentially primed for positive revisions through 2013 relative to material cuts through 2012."

Finisar closed at $16.37 on Friday.
