Nokia, Alcatel-Lucent win positive for optical component companies, says Needham
Needham analyst Alex Henderson says that Alcatel-Lucent (ALU)/Nokia (NOK) announcement of a major contract win to build over 30% share of China Mobile's (CHL) 2016-2017 new construction of optical network is also a major positive for optical component companies such as Oclaro (OCLR), NeoPhotonics (NPTN), Fabrinet (FN), Lumentum (LITE), Inphi (IPHI), and Acacia (ACIA). Henderson thinks this is likely the first of three major awards in China, which will likely result in the current sold-out conditions in the coherent optical market to stretch out well into 2017.

The analyst "aggressively recommends" investors Buy NeoPhotonics' shares before the company's analyst day on September 8. Further, Henderson thinks Acacia's (ACIA) over $4B market cap will likely drive them to be acquisitive, and notes that it may seek to reduce costs as a percent of revenues by a potential acquisition of, for example, NeoPhotonics or Oclaro (OCLR). He reiterates a Strong Buy rating and $20 price target on NeoPhotonics' shares.
