Applied Micro Circuits (NASDAQ:AMCC)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reiterated by Zacks in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. They currently have a $8.75 target price on the stock. Zacks‘s price objective points to a potential upside of 5.80% from the stock’s previous close.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Applied Micro reported disappointing first quarter fiscal 2015 results with a decrease in year-over-year earnings and revenues. We believe that Applied Micro is well positioned to grow its market share based on its diversified product offerings, such as X-Gene and X-Weave products. In addition, the company’s strong associations with renowned server OEMs are expected to augment its business going forward. However, the competitive strides in the industry are likely to have a detrimental impact on its businesses. Management is also concerned about the continued macroeconomic challenges. Nevertheless, we maintain our long-term Neutral recommendation for the stock. “
