The analysts wrote, “MaxLinear reported 4Q17 revenue that was in line with guidance while NG EPS beat by a penny. However, 1Q18 revenue guidance came in lower than our forecast reflecting headwinds in the optical, ForceTouch, MoCA, satellite and Industrial & Multi-Market segments. On a positive note, NG GM was better than expected in both 4Q17 results and 1Q18 guidance. Though we remain encouraged by the strong pipeline of upcoming Infrastructure products and their respective potential market opportunities, we lower our EPS estimates for 2018 and 2019 and price target to $30 from $32 to remove risk revenue from our forecast.””
