Morgan Stanley Reaffirms “Overweight” Rating for Mavenir Systems (MVNR)
Mavenir Systems (NASDAQ:MVNR)‘s stock had its “overweight” rating restated by stock analysts at Morgan Stanley in a report issued on Friday. They currently have a $14.00 target price on the stock, down from their previous target price of $20.00. Morgan Stanley’s price target suggests a potential upside of 20.27% from the company’s current price.
The analysts wrote, “The migration of services to 4G LTE over the next several years drives a growing mix of high margin software revenue. Lumpy carrier spending patterns and timing uncertainty for VoLTE and RCS deployments create quarterly volatility, but the l-t opportunity remains on track and begins to accelerate in 2015. MVNR trades towards the upper end of the peer group range as the growing software mix increases the company’s growth and margin profile.”
