IPG Photonics price target lowered to $180 form $190 at Raymond James

Raymond James analyst Brian Gesuale lowered his price target for IPG Photonics to $180 from $190 given margin pressure. The analyst says gross margin headwinds are stiffer than he anticipated, but notes that he is pleased with the quarter and views the positives as offsetting the negatives. Likewise, it seems the pain is done and he has an "enriched confidence" that the improved outlook plus a depressed valuation should put the stock on a path toward $180. While trade/tariff/China issues could still prove to be a wild card, Gesuale believes fundamentals will reaccelerate and lead to outperformance over the next year. He reiterates a Strong Buy rating on the shares.

Laser industry survey by Northcoast sees continued 2019 headwinds
Northcoast analyst Tom Hayes is keeping his Neutral rating on Laser names IPG Photonics (IPGP), Coherent (COHR), and nLIGHT (LASR) as part of his research note on the sector highlighting the findings of his December Laser Industry survey. The analyst states that although the respondents are more optimistic, they continue to see international market activity as choppy with limited visibility. Hayes further cites the respondents' concerns over "geopolitical issues, tough comps and pricing", with the second half of 2018 and early look at 2019 indicating continued headwinds but at a "slightly more muted tone".

Hold
nLight initiated with a Hold at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Greg Palm initiated nLight (LASR) with a Hold rating and $20 price target and advises waiting for a more attractive entry point. In a research note to investors, Palm says laser systems are taking increasing share in the broader machine tool industry, fiber lasers are gaining vs. traditional laser technologies like CO2 and YAG, and believes nLight is well-positioned to take share from IPG Photonics (IPGP) and others due to second sourcing and product differentiation. That said, he believes outsized exposure to China, a general slowing in industrial end markets and recent pricing pressure will keep a lid on overall sentiment and the stock in the near term.

IPG Photonics price target lowered to $175 from $180 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Thomas Diffely lowered his price target on IPG Photonics to $175 after its mixed Q4 results and lower than expected outlook for Q1. The analyst notes that the macro weakness in China and Europe are still weighing on its near-term outlook, with the former market being the "biggest unknown", while pricing pressures continue to impact the 1kW-3kW laser segment. Diffely is keeping his Buy rating however, citing some positive data points in the past few months which include some signs of China order activity picking up, traction for the company's new pulsed lasers, and "nice" growth in North America laser sales.
