  • 8/16/2016 – Jabil Circuit was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Stagnating sales are the primary headwinds for Jabil Circuit. In addition, there have been speculations that its largest customer Apple is still facing demand woes. At its last earnings call, Jabil had given muted revenue guidance due to weak mobility demand. This apart, intensifying competition, macroeconomic headwinds and increasing investments remain concerns. Nonetheless, going ahead, opportunities in the healthcare and packaging business are likely to drive DMS revenues. Also, the company has been seeing strength in non-traditional sectors, which are likely to be important growth drivers. A new $400 million share repurchase plan and its goal of returning $1 billion to shareholders by fiscal 2018 is also a positive.”
  • 7/27/2016 – Jabil Circuit had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Raymond James Financial Inc..
