The analysts wrote, “MTSI reported in-line F3Q18 results and provided solid F4Q18 guidance. Data center revenue was better than expected (including a $7MM license payment) and is well positioned for a C2H18 ramp with its new white box transceiver customer which will be licensing MTSI’s qualified transceiver designs as well as purchasing the company’s components. Telecom revenue was slightly below our expectations driven by a stall in China during the ZTE ban. The Ind&D business grew 10% Q/Q driven by share gains and new programs/program upgrades. MTSI expects all end-markets will contribute to sequential top-line growth in 2H18. We maintain our Buy rating and $34 PT on MTSI as C2H18 looks well positioned for a strong DC ramp.””
